Make Your Own Home Decor, Skincare, and More With These DIY Kits from Etsy
If you haven't already gotten into tie-dyeing, embroidering, or repurposing your family members' (who definitely didn't volunteer) old button-downs into trendy dresses, you've got so much ahead of you. But even if you'd started on all of the above and more, there's still so much more in the world of crafts to tackle in quarantine.
If you happen to be in a smaller apartment during this time, possibly with family or roommates, taking up something smaller scale like embroidery can be a beneficial creative outlet. Embroider cloth as gifts to give or art pieces to hang or simply give your wardrobe a bit of a personal touch.
