23 Awesome Decorative Crafts You Can Make Easily
There are many interesting decorative crafts ideas to choose from. The most common craft is papermaking. Paper crafts range from making simple paper flower arrangements, cards, or birthday invitations, to more complex decorative crafts such as making an invitation to a wedding or an anniversary party that would look great framed on a wall. When it comes to paper arts, there is no limit to the amount of creativity you can apply when making paper crafts. You can easily use an elaborate coloring page or embellish paper by hand, or you can turn your computer into your very own paper arts lab with decorative crafts ideas such as creating unique greeting cards, invitations, or scrapbooks all created using one or two sheets of photo paper, one or two colors of dry erase marker, a few bits of string, and a permanent marker of your choosing.
The next most common decorative craft idea is metalworking. Metalworking can be applied to a variety of metalworking tools including nailers, drills, punches, and hammers. You can make everything from simple statues and souvenirs for holidays to a wide variety of musical instruments such as a guitar, a keyboard, or a keyboard set complete with picks, strings, and an electric tuner. There are dozens of other interesting ideas that may be more appealing than metalworking, such as making unique jewelry pieces. Jewelry can be made of almost anything that can be glued together, including glass beads, metal scraps, plastic, fabric, or any other material you can think of.
One final decorative craft idea that will not require an extreme amount of creativity is fashion crafts such as tattooing or body piercing. There are dozens of different kinds of metalworking tools for bead and stud construction, but aside from using hot metal, most people use cold metal - steel for earrings, stainless steel for bracelets and necklaces, and copper for rings. Even if you don't want to get a real tattoo, you can still make fun and unique fashion accessories by using body piercing supplies. When you look at jewelry, watches, scarves, pins, clips, and other fashion accessories, take a look at all the beads and screws and nuts inside the packaging - they probably contain brass, copper, gold, iron, zinc, and aluminum. Even if you never decide to get a body piercing, you will find that decorative crafts like jewelry and sewing have a place in your home for just about any decorative object that you can think of.
