Arts & Crafts

Arts and crafts is one of the most popular hobby types, with something for everyone! Painting and drawing are great hobbies for any age, crocheting and knitting are ideal if you enjoy quiet time, and candle and soap making are great skills for anyone to learn!

There are lots of reasons why you should learn and master a craft. Finished crafts make great gift ideas for birthdays and holidays. You can save your money and give a gift made with love! A crocheted baby blanket is the most thoughtful baby shower gift!

Another reason to start a craft hobby is because you can turn your hobby into a business by selling finished crafts online or a local marketplace. Many people will buy something handmade over something mass-produced. I enjoyed making handmade greeting cards and made a business out of it by selling on Etsy.
