Easy Craft Ideas for Adults
Do you know how to make candle holders? If yes, then you can easily decorate your house with colorful and decorative candle holders with candles of appropriate shapes, and classy colors, placed in each of them. This is one of the easiest crafts for adults. Use glass containers like bowls, drinking glasses or bottles for making decorative candle holders. Melt wax in a container and add liquid colors to make colored wax. Stick a wick to the bottom of the glass container and pour wax in these. Before pouring wax, place a stick in horizontal position, on the glass rim. Now stick other end of wick to this stick using an adhesive tape. Now lift the stick to pour wax and again place it horizontally on the glass rim. You can also form layers of different colors of wax. For this, let the first layer dry before you pour the second layer of wax. A beautiful candle holder is ready. Once the wax dries off, you can remove the adhesive tape used to attach the wick and also take off the stick.
This one is a beautiful craft idea that adults can try working on. You can use old teacup saucers and liquor glasses for making this craft item. Take two teacup saucers, two liquor glasses, silk flowers and glue. Glue some colorful silk flowers in one of the liquor glasses. Place a saucer and glue the glass stem to the center of this saucer. Now take another saucer and apply glue to the center part of its base. Also, apply glue on the rim of liquor glass in which we have added flowers. Now place this saucer on top of the liquor glass and press it slightly so that it sticks well. Take another liquor glass and glue flowers in it. You need to glue this glass, upside down, on the topmost saucer. So, the stem of this glass will be on the topmost part of the entire piece. You can also stick more flowers on this stem. A table centerpiece is ready. The saucers can be used to place your small jewelry items as well.
How about creating an artwork with some paint colors and a piece of canvas? Well, you need not be a great artist for a shot at painting. Take those colors, pick some paint brushes, get a piece of canvas and start with your artwork. Wondering what to paint? Just think out-of-the-box and let the free strokes of your paint brush create a unique painting. Forget the cliched nature paintings and think different. How would your cell phone look like when bent in the center? How about painting your purse and your jewelry on the bed, with everything spread around it? This is a truly creative way to spend your free time. You can add a frame to this artwork and hang it in your bedroom or patio.
If you don't want to opt for regular painting, then try fabric painting. You can use old fabrics and give them a new look by painting them.
