Craft Hobbies For Couples (To Bring You and Your Partner Closer)

In this post, you’ll find many crafting hobbies. Let’s face it: a lot of couples don’t share the same interests.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t find something to do together.

In fact, I believe that hobbies are one of the best ways to strengthen your relationship and deepen your connection.

There’s no better way to bond with your partner than by getting into a craft hobby together. And there are so many fun things you can do together.

List Of Craft Hobbies For Couples

Whether you’re looking for something fun to do together, or just want to learn more about each other, these hobbies are sure to bring you closer together.

Body Art

Body art is a great way for couples to bond and express themselves creatively. Start by talking about what kind of art you’re interested in making, then research some of the materials you’ll need (i.e., paint, canvas, brushes).

If you aren’t sure what kind of design you want, there are plenty of resources online that will help you find inspiration for whatever kind of project you’re looking for.

You might also consider joining an artist group in your area or attending classes at local schools and art studios.


Pottery is a great hobby to share with your partner. It’s a relaxing activity that involves creating something beautiful together, and it’s simple enough that you can pick it up without much experience.

Pottery is also a practical hobby, you can sell your work, or use it as decor in your home. If you’ve never made pottery before, the first thing you’ll need is an actual wheel. You can find these at craft stores or online.

There are tons of resources online where you can learn about pottery. You might want to start off by watching some YouTube videos that teach people how to get started with pottery projects—it’s easy and fun!


You can start off by choosing an easy subject, something like flowers or animals might be good if this is your first time painting.

Then just pick up some paint and brushes, find some blank canvases (which are usually pretty cheap), and get started.

The best part about getting started with painting is that there’s no wrong way to do things, you just have to do what feels right for you.


Cooking is a great hobby for couples. It’s good for you, it’s good for your relationship, and it’s good for your wallet. Plus, who doesn’t love a delicious home-cooked meal?

Try making something simple (like scrambled eggs) and see how it turns out. Then try another recipe, and another… until eventually, you’ll find yourself feeling confident enough to make more complex dishes.

You can learn about cooking from books, magazines, TV shows (especially the Food Network), online videos (like YouTube), and cookbooks that have step-by-step instructions.


Anyone who enjoys being outdoors, working with their hands, and spending time with their partner can benefit from gardening. It’s also a good way to get kids interested in nature and the environment.

Find something easy and fun that will give you some quick results (like growing herbs), then build on that experience as time goes on.

Whether you’re just starting out or want to expand your garden, there are plenty of resources available to help you out.

Your local library or bookstore will have a variety of gardening books for beginners (and even advanced growers). You can also find instructional videos online or take classes at your local community college.

Beer Brewing

Brewing beer is a great way to spend quality time with your partner. It’s a fun hobby that you can both do together, and it provides an outlet for creativity, which is always good for a relationship.

The first step is buying a kit from your local homebrew shop or online store. These kits come with all the ingredients and equipment you’ll need to get started.

You’ll also need some basic supplies like plastic buckets, stirring spoons, measuring cups, etc.,

If you and your partner are looking for something new to do together, calligraphy might be the perfect crafting hobby.

Like many other hobbies, calligraphy is something that you can take with you wherever you go. The first step is to buy yourself some supplies.

You’ll need pens (usually fountain pens), ink (usually black or blue), paper (any kind will work), and an inkwell or other container for your ink.

You’ll also want some paperweights or clips so that your paper doesn’t move around while you’re writing. Once you’ve got all of this stuff together, it’s time to start practicing.

Perfume Making

If you and your partner love to get creative together and like the smell of sweet creation, then perfume-making is for you. You can make all sorts of different kinds, from floral scents to fruity scents to musky scents.

It’s not just about the fun of mixing ingredients together and coming up with new scents; there’s also a lot of chemistry involved, which means it’ll help sharpen your skills in that area as well.

You can learn about perfume making from many different sources, including books written by expert perfumers.

Rug Making

Rug-making is a craft that can be done by just about anyone. All you need is the willingness to learn and the patience to practice, and you’re on your way to creating beautiful rugs for your home.

If you’ve ever done any sort of sewing before (like putting together stuffed animals), then you already have most of the skills required for rug-making under your belt.

If you’re interested in giving rug making a try, start by looking up tutorials online. There are lots of great videos out there that will walk you step-by-step through the basics of how to make rugs.


Dreamcatchers are one of those things that look really cool but seem impossible to make. But they’re actually super easy, all you need is some string, feathers, beads, and other decorations.

You can even make them out of paper if you want something that’s more temporary.

Not sure where to start? The internet is full of resources for people who want to learn about making dreamcatchers.

Soap Making

Soap-making is a craft that can be enjoyed by couples and families alike. It’s an easy way to spend time together and create something useful.

It’s basically just mixing together various oils with lye (sodium hydroxide) to create a basic bar of soap.

Once you’ve got your basic recipe down, there are endless variations you can try out, from adding essential oils or other scents to experimenting with different kinds of oils (olive oil is great for dry skin; coconut oil works well for oily skin).

Candle Making

While there are many different ways of making candles (and many different types of candles), the easiest way is by using a wax ring mold and pouring melted wax into it.

This will create a solid base for your candle. Once it has cooled down enough that it won’t burn you if you touch it with your fingers (about 30 minutes after pouring), you can add colorants or scents as desired.

There are lots of ways to learn about making candles: You can read this candle-making guide or take classes at your local craft store.

Puppet Making

If you like to make things, and your partner likes to play with things, then puppet-making is a great hobby to try together. It’s a fun way to spend time together, and it’s also a creative outlet that can help you express yourself.

To make your own puppet, you’ll need to sketch out the design first, then cut out all the pieces of felt or cloth by hand or by machine.

Once all the pieces are cut out, sew them together using needle and thread then stuff them with cotton or wool stuffing (you can buy this at any craft store).

For more information check out this guide to puppet-making for beginners. There are also many books available on Amazon about how to create your own puppets from scratch.

Mosaic Art

Mosaic art is a great hobby for couples. If you and your partner have an artistic side, this is the perfect way to express that.

Creating mosaic art involves using small pieces of tile or glass and gluing them onto a surface to create a larger picture.

First, decide which materials you’d like to use: glass tiles, ceramic tiles, metal pieces, or even broken glass.

Next, decide on an idea for your project (you could do anything from a simple pattern to an elaborate landscape).

You can also find free guides online if you want some guidance before trying it out on your own. And don’t worry about getting it wrong; even if your first few attempts don’t turn out as planned, there’s always room for improvement.
