For me, I find them pretty convincing and you might be interested in doing DIY for these awesome reasons. And I’m going to talk more about them in a bit.
DIY crafting could be done with different materials, and these reasons for all materials would be perfect. So whatever you got, I’m sure it will work. As long as you are careful, and doing them safely, you are good. Also, have the tools to work on them.
I’m doing crafts using cardboard and paper. But, I’m planning to do more crafts using wood and other materials as well. Which will be in the future. I’m looking to get creative with other materials as well. However, for now, these reasons are also good for cardboard and paper.
Well, there is more talk about, but I will be mentioning it as I share with you guys the reasons. So stay tuned and keep reading to get more details about the DIY crafts. And learn more about why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life.
1. Make kids busy
What better way to make kids busy when they are bored from playing with toys? Well, involving kids in doing crafty projects is the best one. Not only to make them busy. But also it helps them to improve their skills and learn more while they doing it.
Doing cardboard and paper is perfect for kids. Because it’s safe and doesn’t require a lot of effort in doing projects which is awesome. For some ideas, it’s just like working on papers. Unless they use the scissors in the wrong way, it will be safe for them.
One of my favorite things, when I do it with my little brother, is he thinks and builds it with me? That creates excitement for him to keep going and finish it with me. And he doesn’t get bored haha. Some kids get bored from playing with toys. It helps him
Not to mention the joy that we share with kids building and having fun doing crafty projects are precious moments. And strengthen the bonds as well. I could go forever talking about how and why this is a great thing to do with kids. Like, helping them with building their creative side.
One thing about crafting with kids is we need to be more careful. Especially when doing wooden crafts. Because it requires a lot of things and machines. It depends on what type of project and materials. However, safety is very important no matter. Even papercrafts. There could be something going wrong in almost all crafts if not careful. But you kinda now get the idea of why I added this to the list of why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life.
2. Solution for boredom
I’m not going to lie. I have seen some people complaining about being bored and don’t have anything to do. And I’m like, I don’t get bored a lot. Because doing DIY crafts is just so much fun. So many ideas to do at home with simple materials. One thing going to stop you is if you don’t have the materials or tools for it.
As much as it’s a lot of work when you don’t have anything to do. This will be the best to spend time on. If you don’t have movies or any other things to get distracted with. Sometimes you don’t want to do so much, so paper crafting is a good one for you.
Something I like about DIY crafting is that you have many options and materials to use based on your interest and your mood. Also, the ability to make something out of the material you have. Either way, I recommend trying crafty projects when you feel bored, and let me know how was with you.
It’s best when doing it with friends or family if possible. That way, it gets more exciting and fun to do and it’s an amazing activity to do with others. Some people, lose motivation for being alone doing DIY crafts, haha, So, this could help.
3. Awesome for saving money
Another awesome reason why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life is saving money. You may ask, how is that? Well, first one, you might spend a few bucks buying a few things and make a project out of them that is useful and cost you more when buying it.
However, crafting could be using free things at home and making great things out of them. And little things that cost almost nothing. I’ve made a portable bookshelf using only cardboard and paper. And it works and serves as well as the one we buy from the store. The materials we can find at home which is awesome and don’t cost a lot. This is another way of saving money.
The thing is, sometimes people want things quickly and would spend more money than spend time to make the things they want. And I respect that, but if you want to save money, I would highly recommend you start doing DIY crafts to save money on some things.
I’m enjoying the fact that I can make everything for myself and I don’t have to spend a lot of money. It’s worth the effort and time on it. And not only one thing, but a variety of things. If you want useful things, decoration, or anything else that comes to your mind. I would say this is most people would look at why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life.
4. See creative ideas in reality
One thing I like about doing DIY crafts and building stuff is seeing my ideas turn into reality. Every time I want to make a project, I imagine it, and seeing it in front of my eyes is just an amazing feeling. And this is why I’m doing crafts in the first place. And I’m sure people would like to see theirs as well. This is why I mention this in the list of why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life.
And when you keep going and making more projects. Your imagination gets better and seeing it is just a great feeling. Sometimes, I can’t believe that it can turn into something. And when it happens, you already know how you would feel. Also, It’s like the more you do it, the better it will look.
If you are a person who loves to imagine how things could be and what could you make and stuff like that. You will love doing DIY and getting creative and showing it to the world. Flex with your ideas and, who knows, ideas could be helpful to someone out there.
At first, I had a simple idea and when I saw it in front of my eyes, I was impressed at that time, I used to imagine things. For example, imagine I have my custom phone stand. Seeing it makes me feel proud and happy, you know haha. This is why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in life.
5. You can customize it and fix it
If you buy a decoration or something useful, it has a high chance of breaking or getting destroyed and not being able to fix it. However, when it comes to DIY crafts, it would be very easy to get them back as it was. Or at least fix it to a level that can be useful again.
One, because you made it, and know how to fix it. Like you know everything about it. Things that will be needed to be able to get it back as it was, you know.
Two, you have the tools to fix it as you just used the tools to make it in the first place, which is something cool. However, that doesn’t mean being careless with it. Because sometimes even these projects can’t be fixed. So you might need to redo it all over again.
Also, with DIY craft, you can make it as you want and customize everything and design it. But, if you go to the stores, you will only get some designs and styles and if there is nothing you like. Then, only one way is to look for more stores or go online shopping.
For the DIY crafts, you will need to draw the design and start working on it. While working, you can even change things if you don’t like them. Or add more things to it as well. It’s pretty amazing what we could do when doing DIY crafts.
6. Boost your creativity
We all know that doing DIY can help save money and it’s fun to do which is true. However, how about the more you do DIY crafts, the more you be creative and learn new things.
This will help you to boost creativity and level up. I can even see myself improving and that’s because I keep doing more DIY projects. And try new ideas.
Doing DIY crafts is not just an idea start working on it. You need to draw and design everything, which is the best way to get good results. And designing, the mind can swim in a big ocean of styles and ideas you know. This will help you boost creativity.
Drawing could be a way to improve your drawing skills because you will be drawing tons of styles and designs before working on it.
If you are looking to boost creativity, doing DIY crafts will make you draw, color, enjoy the process, and see the result at the same time. This is one of my biggest reasons why doing DIY projects and crafts.
It doesn’t only help you with one thing; it helps you with many things. Like, such as improving your drawing talents, coloring, and many things. This is why DIY crafting is a great thing to consider in your life.
7. Customize it any time you want
One thing about crafting is that you can customize it any time you want. And this applies to any DIY project you make. When you buy things from the store, it is hard sometimes to do anything to them. Because it came full customized.
If you are looking for something that you can customize it occasionally, you will need to do DIY crafts. And it’s not that complicated for many crafts. It will be easy to craft it and easy to customize it the way you want.
When you don’t know how to do DIY crafts. That’s not a problem because you can learn. And things will be even better after you learn some basics. Also, the best way to learn a lot is by crafting more ideas. Don’t stop and as you keep doing, you will learn a lot.
Customize it any time you want. It means that after you finished crafting something. Even after days later, you still can adjust and customize your DIY craft. Therefore, if anything, you don’t need to buy a new one. Just customize the old the way you want.
The reason why I started crafting is that I enjoy it. Something I could do that helped me pass time. And also to share with my readers on the blog. Since then, I didn’t stop. However, now I’m just waiting for a bit and I will get back to crafting again.
8. Earn money from crafts

How to earn money from crafting. Even though it will require you a lot of work. It will be worth the effort if you keep going. Because it might get great results from the first time. And that’s normal for a lot of crafters who sell their crafts.
The amount of money will depend on what type of crafts you do. Some ideas might do better than other ideas. Therefore, you need to make sure that it’s something a lot of people are interested in buying your DIY crafts.
I said from crafts, but you can earn money from any DIY idea. As long as it’s good and wanted by people. That would help you to earn money faster.
