String art is a great and relaxing hobby you can master in no time.

I used to like it when I was a kid, and you can’t go wrong with string art ever. Even if you make a mistake, no one can possibly notice. Perfect and easy craft kit to refresh your wall or give it as a gift for a sunflower lover.

This sunflower craft kit includes:

2. Diamond painting kit

easy art projects adults

Have you heard about diamond painting? It’s very similar to a paint-by-number picture. It is a new addictive hobby you can learn quickly.

Instead of using paint as you do in paint-by-number, your kit will include tiny rhinestones, crystals, or diamond-like facets. Then you apply the diamonds to the canvas following the patterns and the numbers while creating a sparkling decoration.

I chose this diamond art kit for adults, and it includes:

  • 3 set semi-finished diamond painting (beads)
  • 10″ by 12″ canvases (two bicycles and a car)
  • wax
  • diamond painting pen


It’s probably one of the best arts and crafts Christmas gifts you can give to children and adults.

Diamond painting can enhance a child’s hands-on ability. The 10″ by 12″ size canvases are perfect for beginners and can be completed quickly. I think it took me a rainy afternoon to finish one.

The cool thing about this craft kit that includes 3 paintings, which allow you to work with your children and improve the parent-child relationship.


3. Pour Painting kit for adults

What a fun craft for adults and kids. Pour paints in no particular order and get messy. That’s how you create abstract wall art in no time. 😉

Some call it fluid art. Basically, by pouring and swirling paint, you’ll achieve a marbling effect. It works as art therapy as you may find yourself mesmerized by the movement of the paint patterns as you tilt the canvas.

It is perfect for enjoying some quality time together. You can give it as a birthday gift, Christmas gift, or have a fun date night.

This ocean wave art and craft kit includes:

  • two 8”x8” blank canvases
  •  acrylic paints
  • pouring medium
