For people new to the world of craft, the pastime can seem a little daunting.
Some assume it’s expensive, requiring lots of specialist materials and tools, whilst others think it’s just too difficult.
But what if we told you that crafting needn’t be either of these things? That anyone – both young and old – can have a go at this worthwhile hobby?
To help newbies get a foothold in the world of crafting, Sykes Cottages have created a brilliant new simple craft guide called Simple Handmade Crafts: A Guide for Beginners. Featuring six fun and creative crafts, the guide is perfect for beginners; each craft is simple to make requiring little to no specialist equipment, and each would make a great keepsake or a wonderful gift.
This rather gorgeous Fabric Bow Keyring is one such gift you could learn to make.
Or How about learning to make these beautiful Spiced Candles.
From wirework earrings and scented candles to penguin finger puppets and crochet tablet covers, Sykes’ craft guide gives beginners the chance to create something special in just a few steps. Each craft featured in the guide was contributed by a UK craft blogger, and was designed to be as easy to make as possible.
A homemade craft makes a thoughtful and personal gift, and with Mother’s Day just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to dig out scissors and glue and gift crafting a go. Your mum will really appreciate the effort you’ve put into this year’s gift, and best of all: you’ll have fun making it!
So if you’re interested in craft but not sure how to get started, why not pop over to Skyes Cottages and try one of these simple, handmade craft ideas?
