Crafts for Teens

I’ve been crafting my whole life, ever since I was little. As you can imagine, I’ve done most kids crafts out there. Then when I was 10 I went to sewing camp, and I started knitting when I was 15. It was a big part of how I spent my time during my childhood!

Despite having always crafted, there was a transition that occured as I headed into my teenage years. I stopped doing crafts organized by my mom and other authority figures as much and started exploring my own ideas – and experimenting. I guess I wanted to gain my own “craft-dependence?”

My friends and I started crafting around that time together as well. Yep . . . I found like minded friends who loved to make as much as I did. And they liked to experiment too. The only issue (roadblock?) is that I went to high school in the 90s, and ideas weren’t as plentiful then. It wasn’t always easy to find cute crafts for teens and tweens that we wanted to do.

Obviously times have changed, and now ideas are copious and free on the internet. As a result, I’m happy to put together a list of crafts for teens . . . my favorite ideas that I think your kids are going to love. Or maybe you’re a teenage yourself? I promise you’re going to like these projects.
