If you’re like me, once you discovered Pinterest, you got hooked into doing arts and crafts again like you used to do in elementary school. It’s hard not to catch the bug with Pinterest because they make everything look so easy and cute! Obviously they’re not always going to turn out that way, though. So this article is to help you learn what pins to try and what pins to just admire.
I think the most important thing to know when starting a craft is what level of craftiness you might be. If you’ve ever dabbled in drawing and painting, those types of pins are going to be a little easier for you. If all you can draw is stick people, you might want to start out with something more basic. One thing to know about Pinterest crafts is that even though they all look and seem easy, there’s a good chance they’re all at least twice as hard as they look.
A good rule of thumb is that if it looks easy before even reading the instructions, it’s probably going to be easy. If it looks crazy difficult and then the comments try to tell you otherwise, they might just be lying to seem cool. Also, the less supplies the better. Your easiest pins are probably going to involve something like a can of spray paint and some hot glue. If you’re new to Pinterest and crafting, one thing you might want to try would be painting an old wine bottle a new color and putting a flower in it. Here are some easy pins that made my apartment really unique:
Both involved only a few supplies making them both easy and affordable. The first one only used a mirror, spray paint, dowel rods, and hot glue; the second only needing corks, a shadow box and hot glue.
