We've listed down four pastimes that will have you making remarkable displays in no time!

Calligraphy

The craft of creative handwriting is a great choice if you love hanging inspirational messages around your home. After all, who doesn't like waking up to a boost of positivity?

If you can't fit classes into your hectic schedule, there are substantial tutorials that you can find online! Arm yourself with the right pens, nibs or inks, and you'll be all set.

Knitting

You only need two things for this hobby: two needles and good-quality yarn. Once you've learned the basics: slip knot, casting on (creating a row of stitches as the foundation) or knit and purl stitch (two basic stitches), feel free to create throws, blankets, and more!

Origami

Commonly mistaken as ordinary paper folding, Origami is actually a skillful art that lets you manimulate a basic material into functional items. Start by creating origami chains and gradually move into colorful ambient lights!

Watercolor Painting

Spruce up with color, watercolor to be exact. Painting is a great way to express yourself and a fun bonding activity between friends and family. If you don't want to settle for hanging pictures, take it to the next level by creating an entire mural in your living area.
