50 Times People Fused Excellent Ideas With Great Execution, And Came Up With These Crafts
When I think of crafts, I picture these weird-looking items floating on Etsy like eternal shipwrecks that rise to the surface every time you genuinely need something. I mean, there’s nothing wrong with pursuing your hobby, but it’s a whole different story if you’re trying to make money out of something you wouldn’t buy yourself. Hence, there’s an entire craft-shaming movement that humorously mocks such instances.
But there’s a whole different side to craftsmanship and here we are talking the perfect fusion of idea, execution, skill, and patience. Mix them together and you see pieces of handmade art that put the mass production industry to shame.
And thanks to the subreddit r/Crafts, we have the most eye-watering collection of crafty objects that prove there’s no limit to human imagination. With a whopping 1.6m contributing to this online community, it’s easy to fall in love with crafts even if you weren’t a big fan of them in the first place.

But crafts are not only for the bored ones of us. A growing body of research has shown incredibly positive impacts making crafts has on dementia and Alzheimer's patients. Although a dementia patient’s ability to reason continues to diminish with progression of the disease, ‘exercising’ their brain can slow that process down.

Not only are crafts beneficial to dementia patients, many experts say they’re essential to their health and well-being. The best crafts for dementia patients are those that offer physical, emotional, and cognitive stimulation. The craft also needs to meet the level of challenge that is right for the person. Some of the easiest crafts are drawing and painting. People at various stages of dementia and with various skill levels can all benefit from these activities.
