With the Delta Variant of the coronavirus wreaking havoc all over the globe, we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to spend the weekends at home. But things can get pretty lonely and boring if you’re cooped up in your room with nothing to do, and sometimes you just need a break from technology.
But what do you even do when you’re cooped up at home like that, seemingly with nothing to do, and sometimes no motivation to get things done either. Well, your laundry and all other boring stuff can wait. Take this time to relax and let your inner artist out, and make the most of your weekends with the help of some cute and simple arts and crafts projects.
Keep reading for some great project ideas!
Make Things Out of Cardboard and Paper Mishe
There’s no end to what you can do with just a little imagination, some scissors, and some glue. If you think you’re up for the challenge, try looking around the house for inspiration and see what ideas come to mind.
Let us explain in case you’re a little confused. You may grab a piece of cardboard and decide to turn it into a cool piece of wall art for your bedroom with some paint, or a set of butterfly wings for any child around the house (or your own inner child) like explained in this Craft Whack Blog Article. The possibilities are endless, which means you just have to give it a try and see where your mind takes you.
This may sound like a pretty boring thing to do in your down time, but doodling has way more benefits than you might imagine. It helps you with your concentration skills, your mood, and hey, it might be a great opportunity to brush up on your drawing skills.
Instead of doodling on a notebook (which is also okay), try doodling on things that will make you smile. Maybe grab your favorite coffee mug and doodle cute animals on it, maybe cover your mirror frame with paper mache and then doodle different characters and patterns on it for a fun new look.
You can even grab something from your closet and some fabric paint to liven it up a little. There are countless things and places all around your home that would benefit from some personality and a cute drawing on them!
Customize Your Phone Cover
If you’re bored of how your phone looks right now, how about you do something about it yourself instead of just buying a new phone cover? Take those acrylic paints and bruges out, choose a theme to copy, and then paint away.
You can do anything from a simple pattern to an elaborate theme, and even go online for some painting inspiration. Once you’re done, put two coats of transparent nail polish on the cover and you’re good to go.
There are countless arts and crafts projects apart from the ones in this blog, like making jewelry out of beads and even decorations for Christmas and other holidays, but remember not to put too much pressure on yourself. The aim of these art projects is to help you relax and unwind, not to give you something new to stress out about!
