Creative Hobbies To Try When You’re Bored


Have you ever found yourself bored and wishing there was something that could help pass the time? If so, then this article is for you! Here are some fun things to do if you’re bored:


Mythbusting is a fun hobby that can teach you about so many different things. You can learn about myths and legends, different cultures, different periods in history, different places on earth, and even different religions.

You may be able to find a local group that hosts meetings for Mythbusters. If not, it’s easy enough to do it by yourself or with just one other person if you don’t mind sharing things like books and websites with each other.


Scrapbooking is a great hobby for people who like to be creative and preserve memories. You can make scrapbooks of your favorite places, friends, or events. It’s also a good way to express yourself through writing and art.

If you want to get started, you can buy scrapbooking supplies from various stores like Walmart and Hobby Lobby. But if you’re feeling crafty, you could also make your scrapbooks by cutting out paper shapes, and gluing them down onto pages in the same way that magazines are bound together with staples – just think outside the box!

Flower arrangements

Flower arrangements and dried flower vase arrangements are fun hobbies to try, especially if you’re looking for something that isn’t too challenging. Flowers are easy to find and you can arrange them in many different ways! You can use fresh flowers or dried flowers (or both), but be sure to buy ones that are in season so they’ll last longer. If you want more options, visit your local flower shop and ask them what kinds of bouquets they have on hand. If you’re feeling ambitious, grow your garden with plants like tulips, sunflowers, and daffodils! The possibilities are endless!

Make perfumes

Perfume is one of those things that you can make in your own home. It can be a fun and creative hobby with the right recipe for you to follow, and there are many different kinds of perfumes that you can create. To start making perfume, first look online for recipes based on the ingredients that are common to that particular type of perfume. Then buy all the ingredients needed for your chosen recipe. Then mix them in a spray bottle (make sure it’s clean) and give yourself a spritz! The scent should be light enough at first so you know what it’ll smell like later on as well after it’s had time to set into your skin (and hopefully become stronger).


If you’re bored, try singing like this ​​singing lessons video. Singing is a great way to express yourself and it can be a social activity (you’ll probably meet some new friends). It also helps you feel more relaxed and sleep better at night, which will make your days happier and more productive. Singing is also helpful in boosting confidence, so don’t be afraid to bust out into a song when it seems like there’s no one else around!

Creative Hobbies

Make your soap

To make your soap, you’ll need:

  • A large pot or stockpot (to boil the ingredients)
  • A few plastic containers that can withstand heat (for pouring into molds)
  • A candy thermometer (to measure temperature)

If you want to be extra careful about safety, use nitrile gloves when handling lye and keep it away from kids. You also might want to wear a face mask. And don’t try this if you have sensitive skin or allergies!

To make the soap, combine all of the ingredients in a large pot on medium heat until they are melted together—this will take around 30 minutes or so depending on how hot your stove is simmering at any given time. Once there is no more separation between the oil and water, remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool for 15 minutes before pouring it into molds. If using quick-set molds like those designed for craft projects, allow them to sit overnight; otherwise, wait an hour before unmolding onto wax paper or parchment paper on top of cookie sheets lined with silicone mats or parchment paper/waxed paper combinations so they’re easy to remove once fully hardened overnight!


Painting is a great way for you to express yourself. You can paint realistic, abstract, or representational paintings, and there are many different types of painting styles out there for you to experiment with.

You can paint on canvas, paper, wood, metal, painting pottery, and more. If you’re looking for supplies to get started—or if you need some new materials—the internet has lots of resources that can help!

For instance:

  • You can use acrylics or watercolors (both are liquid paints) to make your masterpiece come alive! These two types of paint dry quickly so they’re good choices if you want something fast-paced. They also require some skill but are not too hard once you get used to them 🙂

Try new makeup techniques

If you’re feeling stuck in a rut and looking for something new to do, try making your makeup. It’s a fun way to express yourself, and it gives you the chance to experiment with different colors and styles. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube that can teach you how to do everything from applying foundation to doing the perfect cat eye or contour makeup.

Even if you don’t think of yourself as particularly creative, there are still ways that you can find excitement in everyday life! For example:

  • Learn how to contour your face using darker shades of eyeshadow or bronzer with the right contour palette. This will help highlight your cheekbones and nose while defining your jawline—and who doesn’t want more defined facial features? Plus, contouring makes any outfit pop!
  • Find an awesome red lipstick that makes everyone stop what they’re doing at first sight (or second glance). The right shade makes all the difference—just ask any celebrity whose shade matches their personality perfectly! If red isn’t for everyone though… try nude instead! It’s classic enough not to go out of style but trendy enough that no one will know how long ago it came out either; perfect for anyone looking for something timeless yet current at once.*

Knitting or crocheting

Knitting and crocheting are among the most popular hobbies out there. There are many different patterns to choose from—you can make blankets, hats, scarves, sweaters, and more! You can make your yarn or buy it online. You’ll also need to buy knitting needles or crochet hooks at a craft store. But once you get going, it’s easy enough for anyone to learn how.

DIY projects

  • DIY projects are fun.
  • DIY projects can save you money.
  • DIY projects can be done at home, or with friends.
  • If you’re feeling creative and want to make something new in your home, try a DIY project!

Learn to play an instrument

Learning to play an instrument is a great way to express yourself. It’s also an excellent way to make new friends, find a fun hobby, and get out of the house. Here are some instruments you can learn:

  • The guitar, which requires fingers and thumbs (or plectrums)
  • The drums, which require hands and feet
  • The piano, which requires both your hands and feet

Learning how to play the guitar or drums can be very relaxing since there’s no pressure on performing in front of crowds. Just like any other skill that you learn as an adult, it takes time but it will come with practice!

Learn calligraphy or cursive writing

Calligraphy involves writing with a pen or brush and is often used for invitations, greeting cards, and wedding invitations. As it’s such an elegant art form, it’s also a great way to add some sophistication to your home decor. If you’re looking for an excuse to learn calligraphy but don’t want to spend tons of money on fancy pens and supplies that you might never use again once the initial novelty has worn off (yes—I am speaking from experience), try creating your calligraphy alphabet using watercolors!

You can find templates online; I recommend this one from Martha Stewart. Once you’ve printed out your letters onto watercolor paper (you’ll want a sheet big enough for each letter in your family tree), start painting them with different colors of watercolor paint! Remember: practice makes perfect!

Try painting with watercolors

Watercolor paints are easy to use. You can buy them in a set or individually, and they’re available at most art stores. Watercolors are also less expensive than oil paints, and the quality of your work won’t be affected by how much you spend on them. If you’ve never used watercolors before, try using simple shapes like circles or triangles to get started.

Start a blog and write short stories on it

A blog is a great way to express yourself and share your ideas with the world. You can write on any topic that interests you, including:

  • Your experiences
  • Your thoughts and feelings
  • Your favorite books, movies, and music

It’s also a great way to meet like-minded people who share your interests.
