25+ Creative Craft Ideas For Adults

When life gets boring, look for something fun to get busy with. And for me, creating crafts takes my boredom away! Looking for craft ideas for adults, then here’s a list for you!

There’s something about creating things with your own two hands that makes life fun and rewarding. Just the satisfaction of making something that didn’t exist before is good enough for me! I especially love a good project that doesn’t require any skill, and uses recycled materials or things that I happen to already have laying around the house.

If you’re a craft lover like myself, you are going to love this round up of unique projects! You will find everything from DIY home decor to creative gift ideas for the holidays.

1. Paint Sample Calendar

This colorful calendar was made using paint swatches and a frame that doubles as a dry erase board. You can use it for every month of the year! A 16×20 frame will fit your paint samples nicely (with a little extra room on each side as this frame is a bit smaller). Go check out all of the details for this craft over at Chicisms!

2. Repurposed Coffee Beans

This is not only practical, it also doubles as an air freshener! Fill up a small vase or glass jar with things like coffee beans, dried beans, marbles, popcorn kernels, rice, or mini crystals, and use it to store all of your makeup brushes. This is also a fantastic idea for table centerpieces. Simply throw a tea light or battery operated candle in there. 🙂

Homemade Coconut Oil Lotion

Natural homemade lotion, made with coconut oil, is much better for skin than commercial lotion. Most people enjoy lotion, and it becomes almost a necessity for some during the winter months as the air gets drier. This actually a fun project!

Homemade Coconut Oil Lotion Recipe

Recently I got a big jar of Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil in the mail and it was just staring at me on the counter…waiting to be used. So, I decided it was time for me to try out this idea. This lotion recipe is really simple and only takes two ingredients. I think next time I will add a little beeswax to mine as I felt like it was a little too greasy for my taste, at least for a daily use lotion. The recipe works great for arms and legs and a little goes a long way. I don’t really like it on my hands, but then I’ve never been a fan of any lotion on my hands!

**Update: I LOVE this Coconut Oil lotion recipe and I’ve realized the more your skin gets used to it the less greasy it is (I must have had trouble absorbing it when I first started). I’ve ditched all my other lotions and we use this one exclusively now and it makes my skin glow!**

Before we get started – coconut oil is pretty amazing. Seriously! It’s incredible how one little thing can have so many amazing benefits. Here are some facts: (Click the image to make it more readable.)
