Etsy reports a 54% increase when it comes to shoppers searching for Halloween and pumpkin DIY kits (compared to the same time period last year). Even though there's still a lot of uncertainty in the air, at least we have the upcoming holiday as a little distraction.

Judging by the numbers, Etsy fans are ready to dive into new projects.
