Dig up your old patches or buy some vintage ones at a thrift shop or on eBay. Then decorate a jean jacket or another item with all of the fun patches you’ve found. You can often sew these on a jacket or jeans or iron them on easily.

If you ever went to summer camp, you probably remember making beaded jewelry with those tiny beads and string. Handmade jewelry can be very simple to make and makes a great gift! You could also make jewelry with beads, wire, and cords.


If you loved to play with Play-Doh as a kid, clay can be fun to make things with now! You can head to an art studio or pick up some clay to make items at home. An easy thing to make is coasters. Marbled clay coasters are actually really beautiful… watch the tutorial above.
