Popular Presidential Craft Projects

Most of us take up crafting as a way to escape the pressures of our daily life and escape for a bit. But Presidents, candidates, and politicians can't just drop everything to start knitting!

Recently, Vanity Fair came out with their video of Six New Year's Resolutions for Hillary Clinton, and they've seen some backlash for suggesting that Hillary Clinton should take up knitting instead of running for office again. But the Interweave editorial staff responded with their article on the Top 7 Reasons Our Next President Should Be a Knitter, and we think they're right.

No matter your political leaning, we all know the benefits of crafting. And while we may not know what Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump’s New Year's resolutions are, but we do know what their hobbies are! It's a tough job, and taking up a craft can really help with the stress of working in politics. Here are some craft projects we think they might enjoy!

Hillary Clinton Inspired Crafts

Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton likes crossword puzzles. They give you brain a nice work out, just like crocheting! We think this adorable Crossword Puzzle Throw from our friends at AllFreeCrochet would be a great craft for Hillary to take up!

The Obamas love to garden, but sometimes you want to bring the outside in. We think these Mini Succulent Planters would make a great (and very trendy) craft for the Obamas and for you, too.

George Bush Inspired Crafts

In his retirement, the former President has famously taken up painting and has done portraits of everyone from his father to the Dalai Lama. If you're trying to channel your inner Picasso, like George Bush, we think that trying this ​Painted Butterfly Tray is a great place to start.

This Men's Golf Vest from our friends at AllFreeKnitting is a splendid project for the golfing President. While Trump has not broken the record for the President who golfed the most (that goes to Taft), we think this vest is a must-have for any golfer.
