Whether you are new to crafting or have been doing it for a while, we have a treat for you. Teens have more fun crafts available than ever before. You can create cool stuff to decorate your room, homemade gifts for friends and family, things that simply make your life easier and even just items that will make you smile during the day.
We’ve found you 42 fabulous and fun teen girl crafts that you can make. All can be made independently – unless you need Mom’s help getting started with crochet or something like that.
Do remember to ask your parents about home décor crafts. Most will be excited you are creating something but simply will want to know that you are doing so. Some parents may want to supervise a little what you are doing, because it is a home décor craft and they usually handle all DIY home projects (that’s just logical, not being super naggy).
There’s a lot you can do with crafting. In just an hour or an afternoon, you can make something that will receive compliments and have your brothers and sisters green with envy. Crafting also makes for a fun party theme, whether it is birthday, sleepover or simply a get together with your BFFs.
One of the best things about crafting is it gives you a little “me time” to relax and recharge. Because as fun as being a teen is – there’s schoolwork, studying and other activities to juggle a lot of the time. Sometimes it’s just fun to create something that’s just for you. Crafts also make terrific gifts – your family and friends will be so pleased with both your creativity and thoughtfulness. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get started! Happy Crafting!
