So many great ideas here! I can't wait to try out those DIY seed bombs in my garden this spring

I consider anything that requires operating machinery (not sewing machines, obviously) or dangerous chemicals to be "for adults."

I would consider Quilling more of an adult craft just because it is so intricate. The adult coloring books could also be a bit too detailed for younger children.

Any craft, as long as it thrills you, is perfect! Crafts keep the mind young and working well!

Whatever an adult wants to do and they are happy and satisfied with it not my choice but theirs I wouldn't pick out not craft for another adult. Let them choice for themselves.

I think adults would enjoy crochet the most as it moves fast and you can complete a project in less time than knitting. Coloring does not appeal to me, but it does to my adult Daughter. Each person has a preference for what they like to do.

Anything that has them using their mind and hands to keep them from getting to where they don't have cognitive use of their minds.

Outdoor gardening ideas. Decorations, pots, using odd things for planters, etc.

Just about any craft is great for adults, as we all have different talents and interests.

There would be thing that wouldn't be appropriate for children such as those involving sharp tools or chemicals, but I think that any craft that spurs your interest whether easy or not would be appropriate.

Speaking for older males, retired or otherwise, (I don't mean to sound sexist, females who are interested would receive the same benefits), and if they're looking for something to take up time and to keep the mind sharp, woodworking groups are definitely and adult craft that does the trick. I've been involved in a group since my retirement and, I find it a great way to meet socially with others, helps keep the mind sharp as you continually have to use math, concentrate on what you're doing and work with others to work out problems etc.

I think that crafting for adults vs children depends on age, ability, and interest of children. Have been crafting with my children for years, and they and now teens and tweens. One loves to paint, another hates it. One is able to knit, but i can't. One is good and drawing. I'm not really sure that there is an adults only craft.

I think that any project with machinery would be for adults only. but a child could do with the proper teaching of a adult supervising them according to age of the child per craft. Thank you for the giveaway . God bless you

Cross stitch is my favorite!!

I would think that sewing with a sewing machine would be.

The craft projects or parts intrusively that I would you consider to be for adults specifically are anything having use of power tools, because in the real world we don't want our kids acting like Tim the Tool-man Taylor, and being injured.

I would consider most metaworking, jewelry making and woodworking projects to be for adults. You wouldn't want children around sharp tools,crafts or saws.

I can't think of any craft that a child cannot learn. With adult supervision and support most crafts are within the grasp of everyone. It's a nice way to bring a family together.

The only crafts that would be for adults only would be ones where you were making some sort of adult toy? I can't really think of much in the way of crafts where kids cannot be included.

I think with supervision kids can do any craft that adults can do. The only thing that might be hard for a child would be knitting, but its hard for me too....

I have taught most crafts to kids but metalsmithing and stained glass are pretty hard to scale back, mostly because of the materials and chemicals.

I think it really depends on the craft, most can at least be done with adult supervision, if they require sharp knives... additional equipment or glue guns...

Adult crafts would be those that require the use of knives, saws or other types of sharp objects. Also anything using caustic chemicals. Very intricate details involving many steps to accomplish the craft would probably be limited to adults.

It would all depend on the type of adult crafting. I know in my case, an adult craft is anything I can teach my son to make with me.

I the craft projects I consider to be for adults specifically include those that use glass, needles or anything that could hurt the child. Also those that have complicated directions.

I am going to save this information and would also like to know if anyone is working crafts in a nursing home...some are in "Protective" environment and I could use all the help I could get.

The best adult crafts are lessons on colouring, crocheting and knitting, home accessories and personal accessories, tie dying and remaking items to something useful and decorative, quilting and my personal wish is for instructions on felting.

Any craft that requires sharp objects would be better suited for adults than for children, but whatever interests any particular adult is a good craft for him or her. I, personally, love a lot of different crafts.

a craft for adults and relaxing too, would be weaving,

Crafts for adults would be those that use most complex tools and techniques that lead to other more challenging projects.

Any craft that adults can do children can to IF it is adjusted to their abilities.

I believe most classes may be altered for any age group. We do oil painting classes, for adults and children, and they all learn a lot and have a great time.

Crafts requiring saws, blades or chemicals should be left to adults. Perhaps children could help with other aspects of the craft, such as painting or gluing.

I agree with others who have said crafts involving chemicals, machines, blades, etc are best left to adults or with close adult supervision.

I would have to say any craft requiring the use of machinery (IE woodworking, sewing ) is specifically meant for adults only. Anything requiring the use of chemicals as well. However these can all be taught to children in a form of respect for safety by a supervising adult D

Certainly any craft with strong chemicals, machinery, blades, etc.

Personally I believe that the majority of crafts can be done by nearly any one at nearly any age. Pure talent is not age specific, nor is it taught in a class or school. While a small child may not be able to handle power tools effectively to complete a project, a grown adult may not be able to to safely use them either. It is always a good idea to have a partner when crafting, someone who is more experienced in the media to insure safety. Yet at the same time keep an open mind, the more inexperienced could simply have a scathingly brilliant new technique!

any craft that involves dangerous material should be adult only but certain crafts can be taught to older children like knit or crochet if they have the motor skills needed

Crafts for adults specifically would be anything using glass or abrasive chemicals and requiring numerous steps to complete

One of the joys of being an adult is being able to try any craft we wish, and then being able to choose what we enjoy doing

Oh, easy. I would consider anything requiring ADULT supervision. LOl.

I would say that the wine bottle crafts and anything that requires a hot glue gun or using heat would be only for adults.

Very detailed colouring pages, crafts with small parts or sharp or complex tools are better left to adults. The first because a child would get bored or frustrated. The second because of the danger.

Adults have better fine motor control and can generally handle more detailed and time consuming crafts than children. Tools, solvents, paints and other possibly dangerous methods are also more appropriate for adults. However, adults are not limited to advanced crafting and can enjoy all kinds of crafts, even those typically considered for children!

Crafts that are geared more for adults use tools or materials that are potentially dangerous for children to use Or are more complicated or involved/tedious than children can handle Or are not producing a product that is of any interest to children or youth to make.

Crafts that are for adults usually are more involved taking more time and patience.

Among the projects shown, I would say there are several projects that should be done only by adults, or by older children under strict adult supervision. For example, the baby card uses metal dies and a die-cutting machine. Since dies have blades and die cutting machines have rollers with a great deal of pressure, children under the age of 13 should not use them. Also, some of the projects call for a glue gun which poses a burn threat, so should not be used by children. But the crafts all can be done by children, with proper adult supervision and care, so I would say none of the projects are really adult-only! My mother introduced me to all kinds of crafting at early ages, supervised, and I did the same with my daughter.

Some DIY projects requiring specialty power tools or chemicals shouldn't be performed by youngsters without supervision. However, with proper training and supervision, many projects can be completed by tweens and even younger children. Their attention to detail may differ from an adult's but then again, it may not.

Forgive me for going against the grain but personally with regards to crafting-theres not really an age to engage rather-proper teaching supervision and execution of safety at all times Sharp tools can hurt at or Any fumes a proper ventilation mask and air circulating system or workspace will protect all ages the same I don't think its the craft that's discretionary nor the age More so the desire and dedication to its learning or not I'm glad my age never took precedence growing up-had it I may have easily lost interest never to have the same opportunities By age I was comfortably competent sewing on an Industrial Bernina Server at my grandmothers sewing company Had she followed the rules of age precaution I'd never have had the chance-she passed away not too many years later my lesson started with heres what this machine can do -like stab the needles thru yourRead More finger as well as cut your fingers right off since it cuts as it sews then I was taught heres what YOU can do with this machine and so followed the lesson on technique st project it was the 's Hair scrunchies

sorry, I meant serger, not server!...guess the language is too outdated for my Google autocorrect-go figure!

I'm thinking any tool that involves hard-to-work-with sharp tools. Or any that maybe involve handling toxic fumes.

crafts for adults usually have more detail

most crafts are for everyone.

Anything that involves dangerous tools or objects.

Anything that involves cutting tools!

The only crafts that I would think of as specifically for adults would be ones that might be dangerous, such as crafts involving very sharp tools or toxic fumes. Thank you for sharing this info and having this giveaway!

Sewing and quilting, jewelry making, woodworking and stained glass painting with soldering. I love just about any kind of craft.

IMO, crafts requiring glass items, extensive cutting, use of power tools and/or making anything scented should definitely be considered "Adults only". Hopefully any 'Adult' topics like drugs, alcohol etc. are auto-taboo! Overall cost for a project is also important. This Gramma isn't too uptight about glittered carpets, though! )

LOVE all your projects!!!

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 craft...plus, 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
