March is National Craft Month, which is a time for crafters to get inspired and create new things. We’re all spending more time at home these days and DIY projects are a good way to help pass the time. I always feel inspired when I make a new project for fun or as a gift! From paper and wood to fabrics, here are some fandom-themed creations that I’ve enjoyed making to help you get in touch with your crafty side.
DIY Winnie The Pooh Drink Coaster
Corkboard is not a material that I’m used to since I’m mainly a paper crafter. But when I saw how cute the design is for this drink coaster I couldn’t resist trying it. The instructions are easy to follow and you could easily create different coasters to suit whatever your favorite Disney character is. The options are endless! This is a fun craft for Disney fans and it can make a thoughtful gift for friends or family too.
Animal Crossing Themed Journal
If bujo, planners, or journaling is more of your scene try creating a themed monthly or weekly spread in your journal. Whether it’s based on Animal Crossing, your favorite Marvel movies, or showcasing your favorite K-Pop group, it can be a lot of fun! It’s a creative way to use your stationery collection and recycled materials you might find for paper-based crafts. Journaling can be so relaxing and therapeutic so it’s my go-to activity when I’m having a stressful day.
Anime Corner Bookmarks
I love the idea of working with origami paper, but using the medium can be a bit tricky for me. If you’re looking to try an origami-style craft but want to do something on a beginner’s level, this project is a good start. They are easy to make and you can choose any anime character you like. If you’re an avid reader, this is a good craft to make some new bookmarks to help keep your pages in your most current reads.
Among Us Felt Plush
Heading over to the fabric side of crafting, this Among Us felt plus is easy to make and a nifty way to try out your sewing skills. Felt Plushes are relatively inexpensive to create and they make great gifts for friends. I’ve made plushes such as a Kawaii style onigiri to Totoro from Studio Ghibli. You can create all sorts of characters and best of all, you don’t need to be an expert at sewing.
Doctor Who Tardis Greeting Card
Allons-y! In this time of being apart from friends and family, how about making a themed greeting card such as this Tardis one. Greeting cards are a great way to say hello and surprise someone with some unexpected snail mail. Whether you choose to use this design to make a pop-up card or a simple standard one it will bring a smile to any Doctor Who fan.
