Easy Craft Projects for Beginners

Not Crafty? No Problem!

With so many people spending so much time at home lately, craft projects have become a popular way to pass the time and have something homemade to enjoy. If you’re new to crafting, there are plenty of projects that don’t require any special skill and create very little mess, and 7 Pointe’s spacious apartments with abundant closet space make it easy to store all of your craft supplies out of sight but close at hand.


An old childhood favorite has grown up! With nearly endless choices of artwork to create, modern paint-by-number kits take all of the risk out of painting, so you can create something you’ll be proud to display in your apartment. Whether you prefer Picasso or Bob Ross, there’s a paint-by-number kit to suit you.

Pressed Flower Art

Love the look of flowers but hate how quickly they fade? Enjoy them forever with pressed flower art, which requires very few supplies and just a little bit of patience. This tutorial walks you through the process of creating your own pressed flower art, step-by-step.

Customized Magnets

Using only glass gems (the kind you find in the floral section of the craft store), small magnets, and some adhesive, you can make magnets out of almost anything paper. Maps, book pages, artwork, concert tickets – almost anything made of paper is fair game. Affix the glass gem to the paper with clear adhesive, let it dry, then cut the paper to fit and add a magnet. 

Aromatherapy Heat Pack

With just scrap fabric, basic sewing skills, some rice or flaxseed, and the essential oil of your choice, you can whip up aromatherapy packs to heat or freeze and use for tension headaches, muscle pain, or just relaxation. This DIY guide will show you how to create your own aromatherapy packs; you might even get good enough at it to give them as gifts! 


The perfect craft for those who love a walk down memory lane, scrapbooking lets you create your own customized reminders of good times. Given scrapbooking’s popularity in recent years, supplies are abundant and easy to find, and your own creativity is the only limit to what you can make.
