Crafting is the other name given to creation. It means creating innovative home décor and crafted things reusing the items available in the storage box. Creativity and art are not limited to a particular age group; anybody can pick up the colouring brush and start. Crafting has proved as one of the most effective techniques to reduce stress and channelise emotions. Similarly, it is the most recommended therapy by mental health experts too. Today, we find that handmade decorating items, gifts and cards get highly appreciated for every occasion. As a result, there is an increasing demand for art and craft items in the market.

Honestly, you do not have to be an expert to start crafting because perfection comes with practice and experience. So, let us look at the list of craft ideas that you can create.

Paper wall hanging. Do you remember making a paper chain in school? This crafting idea is similar to what we have learned in our school days. Hands down, but it is one of the ideas for beginners to create a wall-hanging. Create this paper-chain wall hanging with colourful art papers straps and decorate your room with it.

Desk Organiser. You can start with a cardboard box or wooden tray, then turn it into nesting boxes as required. Also, desk organisers get used as dressing table organisers for makeups, pieces of jewellery and other products. It helps you to keep everything in order and in a well-organised manner.
