Covid Crafts: Things To Do During Lockdown

We’re in it once again, but this time, we know the drill. Perhaps you’ve got some craft supplies left over from last year or want to try something new. Either way, we’ve got you covered with these five lockdown crafts.

Shake It Up!

Even if you can’t order your favorite restaurant meal on UberEats, alcohol is still being delivered. So, splash out and spend that commute money you’re saving on some nice liqueur or use whatever dregs you’ve already got at home and get shaking!

Try making something entirely new or stick with your favorite.

Yarn Over, Pull Through

It’s still chilly outside, so why not make a pair of gloves, scarf or beanie to show off during your turn about the garden? There are a million tutorials for knitting and crochet on YouTube, and scarfs are a great beginners project. Don’t forget to count your stitches! If you’re a bit more advanced, try a chunky knit blanket or knit sweater.

Bake It Til You Make It

Or should we say bake it to make it?

Clay earrings are all the rage at the moment, and they are so simple to make.

Get some jewellery supplies and oven-bake clay delivered from Kmart, and you’re good to go. Again, there are many tutorials on how to make these, and the best part is you’ll have something to show off after lockdown.

Pot It Like Its Hot

Everybody has at least some paint lying around; if you’ve got kids, you’ve probably got more than others. Plain plant pots are another item that can be found scattered about the place. So, combine your kid’s – or your – love of finger painting and give your plants a colourful new home with hand-painted pots! There are some super cute ideas on Pinterest, so check it out and get creating – we beleaf in you!

Burn, Baby Burn!

Making candles is an easy and delicious craft.

You can choose from hundreds of scents, either palm, soy or beeswax, order a fancy container, or simply use an empty coffee jar from home. If you’ve got a mold, you could try making wax melts as well!

We hope you’ve enjoyed these crafts you could try during lockdown. Don’t forget to tag us in any creations you post on Instagram, @fennecandfriends.
