If you’re looking for the ultimate list of Jewish crafts for adults, you are in the right place! We’ve been sharing some ideas here on Beyond the Balagan for over a year (including some fun recipes such as our delicious dutch oven cholent recipe) so it’s time for a list of our favorites. Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links.
While Jewish food blogs are available in droves (and yes, we even share food ideas here occasionally…) craft blogs can be harder to find – especially those that share Jewish crafts for adults.
We get it.
Jewish life revolves around food.
Between Shabbat every week and many long holidays, the mitzvah of hachnasat orchim – inviting guests, we cook a lot and need refreshers.
But every once in a while mama needs an outlet too, and as a frum crafty mom, I wanted Beyond the Balagan to provide that much-needed resource.
Why I love sharing Jewish crafts for adults:
How many people have told me “but I can’t craft, I don’t have the time, I’m not creative…”?! I don’t believe it – not because I think everyone is gifted with a crafty or artistic sense, but I do believe that anyone can enjoy crafting – the same way I occasionally get into cooking.
And for once, it’s nice to have a physical product of our efforts that doesn’t get devoured by the hungry troops real quickly.
The thing is that some people do better with instructions. Some people need to find those “fail proof” tutorials, those templates that make a craft project more doable.
For that reason, I love sharing craft tutorials both here and on Moms & Crafters.
Since me and Rochel started Beyond the Balagan, I’ve been sharing most of my Jewish crafts for Adults on this blog, even taking some off Moms & Crafters, but I’ve listed ideas from both blogs below. I’ve also listed Jewish crafts for adults from some of my favorite Jewish bloggers.
So enjoy, and remember – all image copyrights belong to the original blogger for that craft. So if you do share this post, please be respectful of the hard work each creator puts in (it takes so many more hours than you might think to run a blog) and share one of two ways:
- Share the link to this blog post using one of the collage images. -or-
- Click through and share the individual craft project that you fell in love with.
And if you do try these Jewish crafts for adults and love them, do let us know – we love seeing what you make!
