One of my most favorite things to do is sit down at my desk (or a table) and listen to something (perhaps an audiobook or music) and do some kind of artistic or creative craft!! Today I thought I’d share with you my top 10 favorite crafts/art projects/creative activities to do!
1- Fluid Acrylic
You might already know this, but I love doing fluid acrylic art!!
I love to color! I mostly use markers or pens to color! A lot of my favorite coloring books are of Bible verses (like the above picture), and I also really enjoy color-by-numbers!
3- Watercolor Pencil
This is something I only recently got into but it’s really fun! I did actual watercolor art for a while but I wasn’t very good at it. Haha! But I LOVE watercolor art so this helps me get that beautiful design!! (note: this is a watercolor coloring book- I did not free-hand that! Haha!)
4- Pen Pal Art
I’m not totally sure what else to call this except pen pal art. I recently found a blog and spent a long time perusing through all of her pen pal posts, and was super inspired!! Mostly it’s just little cards, art, stickers, and designs that could fit perfectly in an envelope!
I have done so many different paint forms throughout the years and I’ll do something other than fluid acrylic every now and then. I really like gouache (pictured above)!!
Macrame is really fun! I’ve only made a few pieces since I haven’t gotten more yarn yet but I’m all about a boho deign style so macrame is so beautiful to me!
7- Friendship Bracelets
I have made friendship bracelets for so long- I have SO many!! They are really fun to make, and I will almost always make a new bracelet whenever we go on a fun trip, with colors that match!
8- DIY Houses
My mom gave me a mini version of these for Christmas and I fell in love with them! They are so much fun to make!!
My fellow writers can probably empathize with me here- you can NEVER have to many journals!! One of my most favorite things to do recently is sitting by my bed in my room journaling!
I don’t do this as much anymore, but it’s a really peaceful craft that I’ll sometimes do! There are so many patterns out there, and I think they’re really pretty!!
There you are! Hopefully you found some new crafts to try out, and if you need a good audiobook to check out stick around for my next post! (hint: i may or may not be on a “top 10” theme…)
