Fun DIY Projects to do in Quarantine

Fun DIY Projects to do in Quarantine


Discovering fun DIY projects is not just a great way to pass the time, but a truly engaging and exciting way to exercise your brain! If you’re currently stuck inside for extended periods of time, you’re not alone. Practising self-isolation may be the perfect solution to helping combat a public health crisis, but that doesn’t mean you have to go sit at home watching TV all day. Keeping your mind sharp with things to do at home is crucial to ensuring you don’t come out the other side of quarantine with a brain (and body) made of mush. Developing fun DIY projects around the house will help you keep busy when you’re looking for what to do when you’re bored. But where to start?? 

ClassBento’s new live classes online - as well as our craft box delivery service - can help push you in the right direction. If you’re chasing some fun DIY projects for yourself, the family, or you and the partner, here’s a little starting guide to get the most out of your indoor activities. 


Indoor activities for redecorating

No one said you had to be bored for the whole duration of self-isolation, did they? Don't get us wrong, if you're stuck inside, it is totally understandable if you just want to melt into the couch and watch Tiger King on Netflix until all of this blows over. We wouldn't judge you, and we hope you wouldn't judge yourself. 

However, with all this extra time on your hands, maybe investing a little bit of time into certain aspects of your home decor you've been otherwise neglecting might be rewarding and fun DIY projects for you to sink your teeth into? There's never been a better or easier time to do some light re-decorating around the house, and this can help keep you feeling inspired and engaged with your surroundings if you're stuck inside for long periods of time and looking for fun things to do at home. 

With minimal effort, you can give your living room or bedroom a touch of new-found pizzazz that would have otherwise been overlooked! Some easy and fun DIY projects to sink your teeth into can be as simple as re-arranging the furniture. Finding a new focal point of the living room and re-arranging the space can help keep the house feeling fresh, and one of the simplest indoor activities you can do to avoid going stir-crazy! 

If you’re searching for fun things to do at home that can completely change the vibe of your living area, our kokedama workshops can help you build a beautiful indoor green space! Kokedama - or moss ball plants - make for a perfect indoor plant as they require little-to-no direct sunlight, whilst still offering you all the benefits of a green space! 

Adding plants to your house make for more than just a fun project when looking for what to do when bored. They help keep the air purifier, and can reduce depression and anxiety in individuals by up to 40 percent; arguably a necessity when stuck inside for extended periods of time. Kokedama plants can be hung up on the walls or arranged to decorate a surface. Our terrarium workshops can also help you build an ecosystem within your own eco-system, and make for a dazzling natural centrepiece to any coffee table, kitchen bench, or living room surface. Either way, they’re a unique DIY activity, and of the fun things to do at home, ClassBento can offer you during this season of self-isolation! 

Horde art, not food!

One of the benefits of ClassBento’s new live classes online is that the experience of learning to paint is very similar to the workshop! Our painting workshops have been chosen due to how effectively they translate to our live classes online format, thereby making them one of the easiest workshops to learn via our interactive live stream! Making art whilst stuck at home is one of the essential indoor activities to keep your brain firing on all cylinders. 

With the prevalence of art therapy in the medical world really coming to the fore in the last decade, indulging in your creative side has shown to have wonderful effects when it comes to processing heavier and darker emotions. As far as fun DIY projects go, it doesn’t get much more colourful than learning to paint your own masterpiece! Our Paint N Sip nights are some of ClassBento’s biggest sellers, but learning to master the watercolour medium whilst sipping on your own bottle of red - from the comfort of your living room - has never been easier. 

Let the artists come to you and indulge your inner Matisse! Not only is this a fantastic experience and one of the best indoor activities to pick up a new skill, but it also can help with the redecorating! Our watercolours botanicals class can make a lovely backdrop to your kokedama green space! 

Stay Clean

If there’s ever been the time to take an hour-long bath, its quarantine season. No one is going to make you feel like a high-class procrastinator for lighting a few candles, chucking on some tunes and sinking into a bathtub for half the day! Treat yourself, am I right? Self-care is crucial when looking for indoor activities, and giving yourself a pamper is one of the best things to do at home and a great way to kill time if looking for what to do when bored. 

ClassBento’s live classes online offer you the chance to create your own coffee scrub, craft your own candles, or even make your own batch of soap! Depending on your budget, you can cover all of your self-care bases this quarantine season, and come out the other end smelling like roses, literally! Keep the skin glowing, even if it’s forced to neglect the Vitamin D it needs. 


No matter how you choose to spend your indoor activities, it doesn’t take much work to come up with fun DIY projects for yourself and the family this quarantine season. ClassBento’s live classes online can help you start small DIY projects that can keep you happy and healthy, long after the class itself has finished!
