New year, new you? Eh, we don’t love the idea of making huge, sweeping resolutions.
While we’re all for wellness and improved health and habits, resolutions don’t need to be deep and lofty. After we have been through the past two years, it’s important to make it a goal to have fun.
So, we rounded up some of our favorite at-home craft kits so you can channel your inner crafter. From beginner to advanced, here are some of our favorite ways to get creative in the new year from the comfort of your own home.
Nuberlic Cross Stitch Starter Kit
A beloved skill dating back to the 15th century, embroidery is a way to embellish, create, and decorate everything from simple fabric hoops to pillows and even sweaters! This beginner embroidery kit includes three hoops, three easy-to-follow stamped cloths, embroidery floss, and threads to make three gorgeous floral-themed designs. You can choose from five design options, so there is a color palette and design option for everyone!
RM Studio String Art Kit
Similar to cross stitch and embroidery, string art is popular in crafting culture right now — and for a good reason. It’s relatively simple (this kit is recommended for ages 8+!), easy to follow, and is a great way to work with your partner, friend, or child on a shared project. Choose from six designs that include a pineapple and whale; the kit comes with everything you need to complete the project. When it’s finished, hang it in your home to add some charm, or wrap it up and gift it to a special someone!
Art of Coloring Star Wars Book
Sometimes, something as simple as coloring can be fun, meditative, and can reconnect you to your inner child. So, dust off your crayons (or some new, freshly sharpened colored pencils) and don’t worry about staying within the lines — we’re all adults here! Star Wars fans will love this hardcover coloring book with 100 pen-and-ink images of scenes from the iconic universe. And, if Star Wars isn’t your thing, there are endless adult coloring book options available on Amazon!
Diamond Art Club Premium DIY Diamond Painting Kit
Painting? With diamonds? Okay, you’re not exactly painting, but this practice has been referred to as “diamond painting” and we kind of love it. Diamond Art Club brings your favorite characters, scenes, and holidays to life in their complete diamond painting kits. Each kit includes a canvas, diamonds, applicator with grip, tweezer, wax pads, and resealable bags. The process of following the guide takes some time but is super relaxing, and the result is sparkly gorgeousness that you’ll be so proud to say you made yourself.
Hapinest Make Your Own Potted Felt Succulents
Love the look of greenery but far from having a green thumb? Us, too. That’s why these adorable felt succulents are the perfect addition to any home — no maintenance required! Plus, they’re super fun (and easy) to make and double as a great gift, too. The kit makes four plant arrangements with coordinated floral accents and includes four adorable pots, 21 leaves, and 26 bands.
Dreamweaver Macramé Moon Dreamcatcher DIY Craft Kit
Macramé was all the rage in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and it’s back in style now. The knot-tying art of macramé is soothing and relatively simple, and the result of this kit is a beautiful boho-style dreamcatcher with a crescent-shaped moon and dangling charm. Plus, dreamcatchers themselves are fantastic additions to your home décor. Legend has it that dreamcatchers ward off bad dreams or nightmares in Native American and First Nations cultures, “catching” the bad ones and letting the good dreams filter through. Sweet dreams! (And happy crafting!)
