Instagram is king when it comes to your crafting venture – or simply to lose hours looking at inspiring makes! Great visuals really are key to promoting your makes and engaging with like-minded humans (and potential customers!). When your photos are great people will want to follow and converse with you. But do you get found when over 95million photos and videos are uploaded daily (Wordstream, 2018). That’s a lot of scrolling!
This is where the mighty hashtag comes in. The right hashtag will introduce you to new people and give your eyes something to feast over, as well as allow you to promote your content. And Instagram have now made it easier than ever as you can not only follow profiles but hashtags too, making sure your feed is full on content you really want to see.
So to help you out we will be collating a monthly hashtag list for you to browse. Not only will you discover great new content but it may help you with your own hashtag game.
- #christmascrafts is perfect for some festive inspiration (and cheer!). Yes it’s November, but if you’re looking to craft for Christmas no doubt you have already started (sometime ago no doubt!). So why not share your Christmas makes and get those likes rolling in.
- #craftsposure was started by Craftsposure and they regularly feature their favourite posts on their account. Thousands of designers and crafters use this hashtag to share their work. The Craftsposure grid is colourful and fresh, and you’ll see everything from watercolour to crochet, printing to jewellery, and so much more. To be featured do keep an eye on their overall grid aesthetic and consider this within your own images.
- #molliemakers will certainly provide you with craft inspiration and introduce you to some fab makers. The hashtag is that of the lovely Mollie Makes and is a great way to get your photos noticed and cement your place in craft society! The feed is super colourful and will brighten up an otherwise dreary November day!
- #ooak (One of a Kind) For something a little bit different why not take a look at #ooak – it might not be your traditional crafts but you will certainly find some unique makes here, from gorgeous jewellery to some custom made dolls that we find very intriguing! Great to use on your own posts if your crafts are quirky and original.
- #feelingfolksy was set up by the lovely people over at Folksy. Folksy is a site where independent designers and makers based in the UK can sell their products. This hashtag was created to get people sharing their love of craft and making, and the feed is full of craft, art and inspiration.
