Creating geometric wood wall art can be a fun and creative project. Just like full-size wood home décor made out of reclaimed wood planks, this one has a similar pattern, but it is much smaller, easier to make, more affordable and suitable for small spaces. It uses wooden coffee stirrers, which you can collect over time after having your coffee, or you can get a bag of them in a craft store.
Stamping fabrics can be not only a very relaxing activity but also extremely rewarding since you can admire your creation for years to come. Previously I have stamped our sofa covers using rubber stamps and a couple of tote bags and kitchen towels using potato stamps. This time I decided to stamp a t-shirt using everyday objects.
Rock painting can be a great way to practice mindfulness as it allows you to focus your attention on the present moment while engaging in a creative activity. Remember, the goal is to relax, reduce stress and anxiety and enjoy the process of creating, not to produce a perfect piece of art. So, have fun and let your creativity flow!
Glitter jars (or calm-down jars) have been used as a mindfulness practice for children and adults for years. When someone is struggling with their emotions, the glitter in a shaken jar is like their thoughts, which like the glitter, calms down eventually.
I find watercolours very satisfying. Sometimes only playing with colours and not necessarily creating anything in particular works for me. During the lockdown, I used to do a daily 15-minute watercolour practice, and it felt great. I’m trying to return to this, even if not every day. I try to find a couple of minutes to myself to relax and watch the pigment spread on the paper.
