New Crafts.

I am looking for new crafts to try. Any suggestions? I have done plastic canvas and crocheting and cross stitch and trying to get away from those because I was getting burned out on them.

  • Have you tried making soap or candles? That was the direction I went when I got burned out on needlecrafts and not only are they fun, you end up with things you can really use. (c:

  • I love making scrap books. You are able to let your imagination run while. And you can use stuff from scrap books to do other things like make cards or decorate gift bags. You could also start painting wood. Wooden letters or houses or things along that line. Its fun and relaxing!!

  • I knit, read, or make jewelry. I do enjoy taking classes at our local craft store to learn new things.

  • I know that there are continuing education classes for different arts and crafts you may not have tried before. I am particularly drawn to the stained glass classes. Local colleges also offer some classes too that are cool like jewelry making using an acetylene torch.

  • I love quilting and sewing but I get that it isn't for everyone... but if you're into the idea, it's a really great hobby. And I make a pretty penny off of it :o)

  • Try embroidery. I ordered this book and have made quite a few things with it. The book comes with a cd you can pop in the computer to resize and print.
