Since the start of the pandemic, many people are trying to stay at home most of the time. Because of this, they have more time for their family and themselves. Since it’s not easy to go out these days unlike before, it pays to have a hobby that you could use as a pastime on your free time or when you’re simply bored.
Creating crafts is one of the most popular hobbies sought after by many people these days. Aside from easy to find supplies and tools, you could also find a ton of resources over the internet on how to do certain crafts. If you’re looking for new craft ideas to try on this year, here’s are some of the trending ones you might want to try out.
Jewellery making is popular among those who love to fashion and arts at the same time. It is also not that expensive to start this kind of hobby since all of the materials used are affordable and can readily be found on craft stores. Before starting, you should have a good set of pliers to help you when you’re working with the metal parts of the jewelleries.
Then, you could experiment using different materials and textures in designing the jewellery you made. There are lots of things to create, from earrings, pendants, bracelets, and many more. If you want to level up your skills in jewellery making, try enrolling in an art workshop with specialty on making jewelleries.
Pottery is one of the most relaxing hobbies you could try out. If you have skilled hands when it comes to forming or moulding things, this hobby is perfect for you. It is also worth your time since you can relax and zone out while having a finished product after your relaxation time. Pottery equipment is a bit pricey that’s why it is important to know first whether you’re into the craft before investing in supplies.
You could try out pottery classes to see if you’re interested in pottery. On the other hand, you could also try using an air-dry clay which is commonly used in quick art projects. You could do a lot of things from clay such as small containers, holders, keychains, home decorations and many more.
