10 Crafting projects that you can learn in your home Isolation

This post will show you 10 Arts and crafts you can do while in quarantine. They will take a little time and eat up your bank account.

Crochet isn’t just for granny squares! They are still my favorite! Crocheting has advanced with the help of talented designers and artists who have created beautiful patterns and designs that are both stylish and easy to do. You can create unique baby blankets and scarves with just a few tutorials.

Origami refers to the art of folding one square of paper into an object using glue or tape. Origami originated in Japan and is now very popular with kids of all ages. Origami is one of the most affordable crafts you can learn. Any piece of paper in your house can be turned into a square.

Projects to isolate & quarantine your home

It can be expensive, exhausting, and difficult to homeschool your children. So, if you buy an origami-colored paper pad for $2 from the local department shop and add some youtube tutorials, you can have an hour of peace while the kids are still creative and productive. You can have the kids make a mobile or other animals for creative playtime.

Paper gift boxes

You can make so many small gift boxes that will make your present unique. These boxes are perfect for small gifts such as lipsticks, jewelry, or money.

You don’t need to buy a sketchbook or a notebook – you can use what you already have at home. Drawing can be difficult because most people believe they aren’t skilled enough and cannot create art they love. I’m here to tell you that this is false. You may find yourself falling in love with drawing by simply picking up a pencil.

Every piece that you draw doesn’t have to be worthy of a gallery. It can be as simple as a line piece or a page with different shades. My most enjoyable time is spent tracing all the shapes and squiggles on a page for about an hour.

There are many methods to draw and learn how to sketch, and you don’t have to use pencils on paper.

Nearly everyone these days has a device that can be used to draw. There are no excuses for not having a sketchbook. Download Pro Create or Adobe illustrator Draw free.

Handmade Cards

Technology has made it possible to send and receive mail electronically. Why not send someone a card with a handwritten note inside? Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and Birthdays are the most popular cards. But, while we all feel lonely at home, why not send some appreciation or thank-you cards to those in your life that you don’t get to see often?

Funny handmade cards can be a great way to cheer up friends and family who are struggling right now.

My handmade cards have been a hit in our house for over 20 years. This is mainly because I would often forget to pick up a card at the shop for all the birthday parties my kids were invited to. I would cut a piece of cardstock in half, then let my children be creative and add a comment inside. This became a common practice over time and my daughters still make their own cards for friends. They made cards for their dance students last week. She was 8 years old and couldn’t host a party so they created cards for her Quarantine Birthday.

Shrink Plastic Jewellery

Shrink plastic can be fun, but it can be costly to set up. However, some food packaging containers have the same properties as Shrinky Dink sheets and can be used in the same manner. You will need to search your recycling bin for #6 plastic containers. This embossed at the bottom of clear food packaging is what you should be looking for.

You can make personalized jewelry by drawing on plastic. Take a look at our tutorial here

Color your Doodles in

You have all the doodles that you have drawn, so why not add more lines to make coloring pages for your children? It’s not easy to find affordable arts and crafts projects that are cost-effective for homeschooling. You can make your own mini craft project and photocopy it to your printer. Then let your kids decorate your doodles with their own creativity.

How to apply hand embroidery

You can embroider on so many clothing items that there are no limits to what you can do. Current fashion trends include Jeans, Sun Hats, Jeans, and Beach Bags. You can also add stitching to any item.

Caps and sneakers made from canvas look great with little patterns of contrast stitching. Small spaces are perfect for flowers, words, and symbols.


While blankets and throws add warmth and comfort to your home, some store-bought blankets can be dull and boring. A blanket that has personalized stitching can give it a unique look. A baby blanket or toddler blanket with a child’s name can be a treasured heirloom and make a unique addition to your child’s bedroom.

Plain throws can be embroidered with stitching to add texture and style. A nice craft idea for the afternoon is to stitch a pattern around the edges, corners, or middle of the blanket.

Hoop it up

There are many sizes of hoops, so you can make embroidery art quickly if you pick a small frame. Or, you can choose a more difficult design and take your time to stitch it.

Hand embroidery can be displayed on the wall straight from the hoop, or in a frame. There are no set rules for how to display or what you should stitch. So be creative!

You don’t need a high-end camera in this age of tech to enjoy photography and take great photos. With little effort, your phone can create stunning photos. Mobile Photography has grown in popularity over the past few years. Now is the perfect time to explore new photo editing apps that will help you bring your photos to the next level.

If you’re lucky enough to have a camera you don’t know how to use or have never used, this is the time to get it out and charge the battery before you start clicking!
