Confession: I’m a rather clumsy person, so crafts are not my strong suit. In my Home Ec class, I was fondly known as the kid who accidentally jammed the sewing machine every day. The first time I tried to crochet a scarf, it somehow ended up going diagonal. My biggest success was this past Halloween. I managed to glue together a costume, but not without gluing my fingers together three times. Note to self: even when you can’t see it, superglue does come out of the tube; and, it’s very hard to get off!
So, I’ve learned my lesson. For now, I’m going to stick to simple, quick DIY projects that won’t make me break any innocent craft machines. For those who have fumbling hands like me, you’ll rejoice over this list of hour-long easy DIY projects, too. These projects are friendly to people who shudder at the thought of long, complicated craft instructions. (If you want easy recipes, then DIYideaCenter has you covered, too!) That means that all of these projects should take no longer than an hour, and be approachable enough for any craft beginner. These DIY craft ideas are also fun for those who are under a time crunch and want to whip up some quick crafts.
