Free Arts & Craft Projects for Adults

Arts and crafts projects are often synonymous with kids and their creative and often-times messy crafting.  But arts and crafts aren’t just for kids!!

Yes, those little ones have more free time available, but it is also true that for adults who love to craft, it is important to carve out time to be creative.  

Arts and craft projects are also calming and relaxing for many.  It’s a nice break from the fast paced life so many live. 

The benefits of arts and craft projects, besides the calming effects, are better sleep, less anxiety and depression, and better cognitive function as we age.

For those who love to do arts and crafts, free craft ideas are the best!  

This page is chock full of different categories of free craft projects for all skill levels.  Many of the projects include supplies that are easily obtained and most are not costly.

The categories of free arts and craft ideas are almost endless.  Here are just a few of the categories to be found:

  • Candles and Candle Holder Crafts- some projects include citrus soy candles, a cinnamon candle holder, a decoupage tea light holder, and tea cup candles, to name a few.
