5 Ways To Get Creative At Home
Staying indoors has given us more time to try the hobbies we’ve always wanted to take up, and getting crafty is a great way to stay calm and pass the time. Here are five creative ideas – as well as the Instagram accounts to turn to for inspiration – to keep you busy this spring.
1. LIFE DRAWING
Always wanted to try life drawing? Many initiatives and groups are now offering virtual life drawing experiences, where you can tune in and start sketching from the comfort of your own home. All you need are pencils and paper.

Collaging is a simple yet fun way to get creative. Make use of old magazines, newspapers and materials you have lying around the house to craft pieces and prints you can display. Fashion collages are always chic additions to hang in your home.
