8 Creative Hobbies To Take Up In 2017

In case you need something to do besides getting into Facebook flame wars.

Not to brag, but I am really good at having hobbies.

So if you've been thinking that it's high time you took up a hobby, here are all of the hobbies that have worked out well for me in recent years, plus tips for starting each one.

A couple of notes:

* I consider myself a creative person but not a particularly *artistic* person, so when I talk about things being easy or difficult, that's where I'm coming from.

* The costs listed below are intended to give you a general idea of what it will cost you to start each hobby, and are based on the tutorials I'm suggesting + the bare minimum amount of supplies + what I bought/paid + what I think most reasonable people would buy/pay. You can obviously spend more or less depending on your budget, the supplies you already have access to, your Michaels coupons, etc.

2. Watercolors

3. Embroidery

Now get out there and make cool stuff!
