While being stuck inside for the majority of the winter, especially with the ongoing pandemic, it’s worth it to look into some fun crafting options to pass the time. Being productive while having fun will make you feel better this winter, and it’ll allow you to make some wonderful items. Learn about some of the best crafts for adults in the winter by reading below.
Covered Wood Bead Necklace
This is a unique craft that can make a wonderful gift for a loved one, or simply something beautiful and new to wear. The necklace is made out of 1-inch wood craft beads. Each bead you can wrap in slits of fabric. Choose some that are color full. You can get fabric straight from the store, or a great inexpensive option is to cut up some old shirts into fabric strips. Thread them onto some leather cording. The result is a lovely one-of-a-kind design that will be perfect for a lovely day out.
Build a Washboard Cabinet
The construction of this type of cabinet uses exactly what it sounds like it uses—a washboard. Create this by either retrofitting an existing cabinet to fit a vintage, or you can choose to build a new one. This is great for hanging on the wall of your kitchen, which you can then use to hold different items such as salt and pepper shakers, utensils, and ladles.
Create a Photo Family Tree
You’ll need to start by getting a shadow box. To create a pretty colored tree, draw out a tree shape on a piece of watercolor paper. Make sure to draw and cut it to the size of the shadow box’s frame. Paint your tree with some watercolor paints to give it the perfect artistic look that suits you. Once you fit your tree in the frame, glue some clothespins to the branches which you can clip photos of your family members to.
Make a Wine Cork Vase
Of the best crafts for adults this winter, this is a great one, especially if you enjoy wine nights with your friends or want to create some unique decorative decor.

You can take an old jar or holder and cover it with the corks.
