Art is a powerful form of expression that feels cathartic and productive at the same time. With art, you are able to express a lot with very little. Art has been an important part of human culture and traditions for as long as the beginning of civilization.
Today, we teach arts and crafts to children from a young age in schools and at home. It is an excellent hobby and a great pastime for families. Art is for everyone, irrespective of age and skill level. If you’re a beginner, then you’ll be delighted to know that it doesn’t even take long to make something beautiful and meaningful.
So, if you’re ready to enter the world of pretty arts and crafts, then let’s get you started. Here are a few easy art and craft to make at home:
1. Coloring Your Home’s Pots or Vases
Have you had the same old plant pots or vases in your house for the longest time, and are you tired of their old aesthetic? Then you can get started on your arts and crafts journey from there. Remember those paints you bought for the canvases? Well, they can easily be used here. Pick a color, any color, and paint the pot or vase for a simple look.
If you want something a little more complex, then look up an easy-to-do design and replicate that. Once you’re done with the painting, let it dry, and then add either fake or real flowers to the pot or vase, and there you go! Another DIY successful mission.
2. Make Tote Bags

All you’ll need is a few pieces of clothes, stitching needles, thread, glue and fabric paints. Start by taking two equal pieces of cloth. You can pick sizes according to your requirements. Next, sew three sides of the cloth together, giving the bag its original shape. Then, use glue and stitching needles again to sew on the handles. You can also staple the handles, but they won’t provide enough grip when carrying heavy objects. Finally, start coloring the bag in any design you want.
3. Create a Photo Heart Collage
What better way to make your bedroom comfier than to decorate it with some of your fondest memories? Go to your nearest printing store and print out your favorite pictures with family, friends, yourself, and your pets if you have any.
Once you’ve printed them out, bring them home and decide what order you want them in, the family can be one side of the heart, and friends can be the other side of the heart. Use glue tac to stick them where you can see them, possibly in front of your bed or maybe even your ceiling. Before you know it, your room is way more personalized if it wasn’t already before.
4. Hang Macramé Planters
Hanging planters are a terrific and beautiful way to display your favorite plants while also saving you a ton of counter space. Plants, in general, are rather simple to hang and maintain, and these macrame-based ones are no exception. This DIY project does need you to learn how to knot and tie the fabric into precise designs, but it is a simple and enjoyable process to master. You can even indulge your kids in this one as they’ll enjoy it a lot.
You can use either rope or thin pieces of fabric to get this done. Get pots from the local market or nursery. The design and size can depend on your preferences. Use the long pieces of rope or fabric to make a bucket or holder for the pots. You can choose whether you want to hang them on the wall or from the roof. Voila! You now have a beautiful decoration done in thirty minutes or less. This is one of the best ways for handicraft making at home easy and simple.
5. Make a Small Tree Branch Wall Light
Does this heading sound exhausting and complicated? Well, keep on reading, and you’ll soon realize how easy it really is! All you will need are a couple of branches of wood in the size of your choice. Bring them home and sanitize them. The second step would be to glue them together with superglue in whatever order you’d like. You can make a geometric shape, a regular square, or glue them up at random.
Once you’re done with those two steps, the third would be to either use an already existing ferry light or go to the nearest target and get a bunch of them in whatever color you’d like. Once you have the ferry light, you either stick them on with the superglue or tie them around the branches.
After you’ve done that third step, the fourth and final step of all is to place it where it’ll look most aesthetic. Either hang it from the ceiling or hang it on an empty wall and there you go, another DIY to make an area of your home aesthetic and set your vibe.
6. Make Marble Jewelry
