Everyone has been feeling a little caged lately, and we can’t really blame ourselves with the lockdown being in full swing. People have been unable to meet their loved ones, go to work like normal, or even to enjoy the simple pleasures in life like a coffee in your favorite cafe. It goes without saying that losing all that has left people with a lot of free time on their hands. It’s the perfect chance to discover new hobbies or rediscover old ones, learn a new skill, and to invest more time in yourself. From making bread to arts and crafts, if you want to find ways to get those creative juices flowing during this lockdown, you’re reading the right article. 

  1. Monogram All Your Accessories 

We all know how cool a fancy monogram looks on t-shirts, and it can turn a simple pair of kammies into fancy loungewear in an instant. If you want something that gives you that cool look, why not create a monogram of your own and get to work marking your territory all around the house? 

You can monogram things like your t-shirts, loungewear, towels, and any handmade clothes that you make! There are endless things that could need your artistic signature only if you’re willing to find them. If you’re in the market for a new machine to help you, or if you simply don’t fancy embroidering all your items by hand, you can browse this site for some great suggestions.

Who doesn’t love a pretty pastry they can savor? If you’re one for the culinary arts, now might be a great time to bust out the big guns (or the decorating kits) and upping your game when it comes to creating the most beautiful cakes. 

The list of things to create never ends, from cakes to croissants, from cupcakes to pies, there’s always something new you can try your hand at.

  1. Paint Away 

If you don’t think you can handle – or want – a wardrobe makeover or to create edible masterpieces, maybe you can try your hand at painting. There are many surfaces you can paint on, from your own walls to a canvas. For most people who don;t know the first thing about holding a brush the most logical option is to buy themselves a set of acrylic paints, a few paintbrushes, and to get creative. 

If you’re an absolute beginner, here are the acrylic painting supplies you’ll need 

  • A basic set of paintbrushes with round, flat, angled, and fan brushes.
  • Six to ten acrylic colors. You can find a list of the most basic colors online. 
  • Gesso 
  • Varnish 
  • Canvases or any other surface to paint on 

Once you have all this, you’ll be good to go. The internet is full of places you can look to for guidance. From paid courses online to Facebook communities and YouTube channels by grizzled artists in the medium, you can get all the help you need. If you’ve always wanted to create breathtaking abstracts or beautiful landscapes, now’s your chance.
