Given the recent events, many of you may find yourselves with some extra time on your hands. While it may be easy to binge your favorite Netflix show, why not try something new? March is National Crafting Month, so what better time to pick up a new hobby? If you aren’t sure where to start, check out these crafts to try.
These times feel incredibly stressful. Soothe your nerves and relax with a Homemade Eucalyptus Essential Oil Candle by The Homespun Hydrangea. According to New Directions, Eucalyptus Essential Oil can relieve mental exhaustion when diffused. These homemade candles use Eucalyptus Essential Oil and are incredibly easy to make. Additionally, they are soy, which burns longer than a typical candle. Using a green crayon, you can add some color to your candle. The best part is, you can switch whatever essential oil you want to use, and whatever color you want to make it. You’ll want to give this craft a try, and be sure to check out our blog on how to responsibly use candles in your apartment!
Social distancing may leave us daydreaming of better days, like a vacation. These DIY Resin Beach Coasters by Resin Crafts will bring you a piece of the ocean. Using beach sand, these coasters are equally a keepsake as they are functional. Of course, if you don’t have beach sand on hand you can purchase craft sand at the store. Each time you use your new coasters, your mind will take a trip to paradise.
With the summer months quickly approaching, it will soon be time to relax outside on our balconies and patios. Get ahead of the game and make these DIY Solar Mason Jars by Consumer Queen to prepare for those summer nights! Additionally, you can choose whatever glass beads you want to cover your new lights. Allow them to charge in the sun for 6 to 8 hours for optimal brightness.
Do you have a lot of old t-shirts sitting around that you keep for sentimental purposes, but never wear? This craft for T-Shirt Canvas Art by Crafty Lumberjacks will put those shirts to use while helping you clean out your drawers. Hang up your favorite t-shirts on your walls by wrapping them around a canvas. Don’t give away your favorite shirt from that beach vacation that holds special memories, put it to good use!
With plenty of time on your hands while you practice social distancing, there are plenty of new crafts to try! If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, there is no better way to celebrate National Crafting Month.
