It sounds silly, but rock painting is actually a well loved craft hobby. Many people sell their painted rocks on Etsy as garden decorations. It also can be really fun and mind-soothing. You can check out my rock painting tutorial here.

3. T-Shirt Making

This craft is much easier than people make it out to be. I highly recommend getting a cutting machine like a Cricut to cut out your designs. Simply use iron-on vinyl and apply it with either a regular iron or Cricut Easy Press.
