Crafternoons are a great way to spend time with friends and get those creative juices flowing. All you’ll need are some arts and crafts materials, a few pals, and a couple of hours after work or at the weekend and you’ve got all the ingredients for a successful crafternoon!
You don’t need anything fancy to get your craft on! Paints, coloring pencils, felt tips and pastels, colored paper, wool, felt, sequins, beads—whatever you can get your hands on or that you have lying around. Raiding your kids’ art supplies is also never a bad idea!
Pick a project or a theme as a blank piece of paper can be intimidating to even the most seasoned of artists. Check out Instagram, Pinterest, and TikTok for easy craft and design project ideas or take votes on what the theme should be. You could even just explore colors and shapes.
A crafternoon should be all about having fun. The conversation flows when your hands are busy and working on a creative task can be fantastic for de-stressing. Don’t worry about the outcomes, just focus on the experience and enjoy!
