Crafts to Try in Corn-Teen

Crafts to Try in Corn-Teen

Just because we're spending a lot more time at home in corn-teen -- er, quarantine -- doesn't mean we can't have fun. If you've always wanted to try your hand at making a craft, now's a great time. Try these out with your significant other, your roommates, or your family, and tag us in your results if you post them on social media! 

Knitting

The great thing about knitting is that, once you get the hang of it, you can do it while watching reruns of The Wire. All you need are a pair of needles and a ball of yarn. Knit a little dishcloth, or try your hand at a scarf. This is a great guide for beginners who have never tried before! 

Slime

Listen, we can't promise that you'll become an Instagram or Youtube slime star. But we can't promise that you won't, either! Either way, slime can be a lot of fun, and it can be soothing to squish during these anxious times. Find out how to make it by clicking here. (This recipe is for green slime, but we prefer orange or purple -- it's an easy swap!)

Fortune-teller

Remember these? From back in middle school? Even if you're intimidated by the thought of trying out origami, fortune-tellers are easy enough for anyone to create. Divine the future for the people that you live with, or for your dog. Here are the instructions.

Jewelry Organizer

You've got some gorgeous jewelry, and you want to keep track of it all. Since you're not going out, now's a good time to get all of those beautiful pieces organized. There are dozens of DIYs for jewelry organizers out there, and there's bound to be one that matches your style! Check them out here

Bird Feeder

Mourning doves, black-capped chickadees, Baltimore orioles (the feathered kind) and northern mockingbirds are just a few of the many birds native to Maryland! Want to see them up close? Make a bird feeder from a few of the things you already have at your home! We're talking water bottles, old plates, and even cookie cutters!
