Making soap is a fun hobby, and it’s easier than you might think. For beginners, making melt-and-pour soap is the way to go. Rather than making the soap from scratch, you purchase a plain soap base and then add your choice of colors, fragrances, etc. Soap bases come in a variety of different formulas. Whether you’re looking for transparent soap that provides lots of bubbles or a creamy soap containing goat’s milk, there is a base right for you.
Once you have your base, cut into small chunks, place in a microwave-safe container and melt. Once fully melted, add in your choice of fragrance, color and other additives. Carefully pour into a mold and let cool. When you’re finished, you will have delicious smelling soap perfect to use yourself or give as a gift. If you need some inspiration, check out this tutorial for making a lovely lavender soap.
Embroidery is not just for old ladies! This traditional handicraft has seen a huge resurgence in popularity in recent years, and it is much more exciting than you might realize. Using little more than a needle and thread, you can transform plain clothing and accessories into one-of-a-kind works of art.
Fashion design not your thing? No problem! Rather than embroidering clothing, pick up an embroidery hoop and some canvas to make art. Cross-stitch is a popular form of embroidery that is easy to learn and can be used to make all sorts of adorable wall art, pillows and more.
If you love the look of flowers but hate that they fade away so quickly, try your hand at making paper flowers. A delightful alternative to artificial blooms from the craft store, paper flowers are eye-catching and surprisingly easy to make.
