The world of crafts is a huge world. There are so many different types and many different things that you can do and create. You can create cards, make other paper crafts, make jewelry, sew, and so much more. Primitive crafts uses a bunch of different categories and makes the crafts look like a whole new craft. Let’s learn a little more about primitive crafts.
Primitive crafts are pretty much any craft that has the look of being older, something you would use a long time ago, rustic, and homey. They are often things that you might see in a log cabin or the decor you would find there. They are a great way to bring a little nature in your home or make your home feel a little more inviting and warm.
There are all sorts of different crafts that you can do to make it a primitive craft. One classic example is making your own picture frame and decorating it. Most people don’t know how to make their own frame, so instead of literally making your own, decorate a pre made frame. Use many different colors like black, many shades of brown, and copper. Layer the colors and use a foam brush for everything but the bottom layer so that you can see the layers underneath.
Painting things like flower pots also is a great way to incorporate the theme. You can paint pictures or just use certain colors to make it seem rustic or earthy. The primitive theme doesn’t have to be completely earthy looking but just something that is outdoors like and something that you might imagine would be if you lived a long time ago.
You can also make your furniture look primitive. There are lots of times when people will buy older furniture and re paint it or stain it a different color. Try this with some used furniture. You can sand it down and create a completely different look. Just adding some paint is a great way to create a completely new look.
A lot of times people will give things a distressed look. The primitive look is kind of like that but it takes it a little farther. When you are creating your own look, try doing the primitive look. It creates something that looks great and really makes things look nice in your home. It is a great way to decorate.
