I agree with those who said projects with glass, glitter, etc., are adults-only projects. I would also add to the list any project that involves a lengthy set of instructions or takes a long time to complete, as I think kids would just get frustrated and impatient.

I wholeheartedly agree with glitter being an "adults only" craft. I can't tell you how many times I've almost (and sometimes have) knocked over a whole tube of glitter. You know what's not fun? Trying to get loose glitter out of a carpet....

I think anything dealing with wine is definitely the epitome of an adult, if it deals with using a bottle to decorate you get a nice sit and enjoy some wine AND craft! What could be better!

Home decor pieces, such as furniture crafts or complex wall art. Not for kids because of skill level and also because they probably wouldn't care about the finished project!

I'd say any craft where you need to use a sharp knife or hot glue should be for adults only. I always burn myself whenever I use hot glue...and I'm an adult...

Anything with fire, toxic materials, or the use of super sharp objects. This is why I won't let my kids take up blacksmithing until they're older.

As a parent of a young child, I'd say anything involving glitter! Glitter tiny hands = do not mix!

There are a lot of crafts I'd consider for adults only (hot glue projects, metal projects, anything that uses smaller materials) -- generally i'd say if something doesn't include Popsicle sticks or finger paint, it's probably not a kids' craft. :)

Anything with glass! Mosaics, wine bottle crafts, glass glitter... etc.

Any type of craft that requires small materials such as beads or string should be reserved for adults.

Oh goodness. It seems like everyone else went straight to crafts that involve specific skills or dangerous tools. I immediately thought of wine bottle crafts. Not sure what that says.

Any project that requires sewing, crochet, or knitting would be considered adult-only. I can't think of any kid that has learned how to knit a sweater! :)

Can I just say first that I love the video at the top of this page? What a great addition! Also, I think making jewelry is probably only for adults. Unless it's some beads and string, then the kids can play! But working with metal is safest for adult hands.

Honestly anything that requires a hot glue gun or any sort of power tool should be 'adult only'.

I would consider home decor crafts to be for adults only. Not that kids wouldn't enjoy them too, but I wouldn't necessarily want them to pick the decor scheme for the entire house! )

Tried this craft? What did you think?

That necklace in the collage looks great! I would totally make it.

I'm glad there are some great crafts that aren't for knitters only! I love crafting but am not too skilled with yarn. So many good options here for me!

I love panchos! Never got over that fad.

Love the book page roses! Seems like a good alternative to the wilting flowers I usually have in vases
