20 Easy Crafts to Do at Home

Tired of being stuck at home during the quarantine? These easy DIY quarantine crafts to do at home for adults are just what you need! I chose some of my favorite and fun home DIY projects that require three supplies or less. Even better, the supplies are everyday items like napkins, wine corks, cupcake liners, and cardboard so I’m hoping you have most of them on-hand already. If not, I’ve linked to supplies you can order online to avoid going to the store. These are all low stress, super simple projects that even the novice crafter can enjoy. I hope you give one of these projects a try, and if you do send me a photo!

20 Easy Crafts to Make at Home with Three Supplies or Less

1) Cupcake Wrapper Wreath

Supplies: Cupcake Liners + Foam Wreath

I bet you have some cupcake liners in your pantry! Flatten them and layer them on top of each other to create flowers, and then glue to a styrofoam wreath form. Tutorial here.

3) Napkin Wreath

Supplies: Grapevine Wreath + Napkins

Yes you can make a wreath with napkins! This is a simple quarantine craft idea. Any paper napkins will do, but preferably ones with a colorful design like these. Perhaps you have some leftover from a past party. Just bunch them up and press them into a grapevine wreath! You can add other decorative accents to your wreath like this cactus, but it’s not necessary. Tutorial here.

4) Yarn Heart Wreath

Supplies: Wire Frame + Bulky Yarn

I love finding ways to use leftover yarn, and especially projects that don’t require knowing how to knit or crochet! I came up with this wreath using variegated bulky yarn. You just tie strips of yarn to a heart wire frame. Tutorial here.

6) Wine Cork Vases

Supplies: Wine Corks + Glass Vase

I’ve had so many people coming to my website for this wine cork vase tutorial in the past month! I guess that means wine consumption has gone up with more people at home during quarantine?! If you’ve started your own collection of wine corks, this is a fun way to put them to use. Just glue them to a rectangular tall glass vase. You can also buy recycled corks if you don’t have your own stash. Tutorial here.

8) Encyclopedia Flowers

Supplies: Encyclopedia Pages + Tissue Paper + Floral Wire

These flowers use the same technique as the napkin flowers above, but repurpose pages from an old encyclopedia (or similar thin paged book) and tissue paper instead. I’m only encouraging you to tear up a book if it is one you’ll never read again! Tutorial here.

9) Ribbon Vases

Supplies: Glass Vase + Ribbons

Here is a cool project to do at home. Gather up all your ribbon scraps you’ve been saving and a square or rectangular glass vase. Glue the ribbons to the outside of the vase to give it a colorful makeover! You can even add some pom-pom trim. Don’t have ribbon scraps on hand? Amazon sells a variety pack of ribbons. Tutorial here.

10) Painted Glass Vases

Supplies: Glass Vase + Multi-Surface Paint

This has been one of the most popular crafts to do at home ever on Design Improvised. If you’re like me and have a number of clear glass vases saved from florist bouquets over the years, you can give them a new life with colorful craft paint. I used Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Craft paint which cures on glass in 21 days without curing in oven. Tutorial here.
