So I have decided that although Pinterest is fun to look at, it is not EXACTLY the best place to go anymore when you are looking for something that you will actually be able to make. I am sorry Pinterest, but you favor the pretty pictures and shares a little too much these days and do not care about quality or easy to follow instructions like I do. In fact, I highly suspect some of the Pinterest projects I have seen in the last few months are not even possible for the average human to make at home. Lovely, indeed, but no thank you.
Fortunately, I’ve become a bit of an expert in crafting and spotting projects that we common folk can actually reproduce. I really wanted to find a great list of projects that were cool, fun, pretty easy and cool enough for both teens and adults to make. These ideas are super for fun craft ideas for older kids and even adults, decor ideas that are fun and cool enough for any teen room, dorm or apartment, plus some clever and creative DIY gift ideas that are ideal for teens and adults who are young at heart.

Painted feathers have become quite the popular crafting item as of late, but this arts and crafts idea can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish.
