It has definitely taken us some time to get used to not going out and spending time with friends and loved ones on the weekends. We’ve had to get creative about how we spend our time.
At a loss for what fun crafts, you can do while staying inside this weekend? We’ve got you covered with 7 awesome crafts you can do indoors.
Shaving Cream Marble Paintings
These paintings are so easy to make and yield fun and colorful results. Simply lay a piece of paper in a baking dish, cover with shaving cream, and then squeeze paint on top. Using a dowel running through the shaving cream creating colorful, marbling streaks, let your shaving cream dry overnight for a beautiful masterpiece.
Build A Fairy House for Your Container Garden
The world of whimsy is a magical one. You can create a fun little fairy house for your garden out of different items and boxes found around your home. Even milk cartons! Grab some plaster-of-Paris and dip your different found objects into the liquidy plaster mixture. Then allow it to dry. Once dry, you can paint your items any way you like. Layer your pieces together to create the perfect fairy AirBnB in your garden.
Creat a Macrame Wall Hanging
All you need for this project is different colored yarn and a dowel rod. Begin by cutting several pieces of yarn at the same length. Make several knots with the yarn across the dowel and then begin knotting in patterns. There are lots of fun knots to learn, like a reef knot or two half hitches.
Free Hand Cross Stitch
Grab a photo of an object or a landscape and try your hand at freehand cross-stitch. You can learn lots of new stitches this way, like the running stitch and the lazy daisy. This is an excellent craft for a rainy day where you might be stuck inside.
DIY Soap Making
Make your own soap out of simple ingredients like beeswax and essential oils. You can add oatmeal or different dried herbs to add texture and use food coloring to make it colorful. Just about anything around the house can be a soap mold.
A Floral Frame
Have some old silk flowers? Time to put them to good use. Grab a picture frame, your glue gun, and start gluing the heads of the flowers around the frame. Want to take it one step further? Some Neon or metallic spray paint can make for a fun effect. Just be sure to tape off the glass before spray painting.
Make Flower Crowns
Another great project to make with those old flowers is to make flower garland crowns. These pretty little crowns can be as straightforward or as fancy as you make them. Try to balance the weight of the flowers on each side, so one side doesn’t always slip off your head. They say heavy is the head that wears the crown, but not a flower crown!
Custom Paint By Numbers
The perfect indoor weekend craft is a custom paint by numbers canvas. This is a great project to work on together and get all the kids involved. Especially if you chose something vital to you all for your custom print, simply let everyone choose a color and match the paint colors to the numbers on the print and get to painting.
In conclusion, whether you just want to learn a new skill or brush up on an old hobby there are so many options that you can do together to make your time stuck at home on the weekends more enjoyable.
