These are creative date night ideas that help you get to know each other better and will leave you with cute, handmade keepsakes to look back on for years to come.
There are many options for incorporating arts and crafts into your relationship. Our list of cute couple crafts features a little bit of something for everyone, so you’re sure to find an activity you’ll enjoy.
Spin art isn’t just an activity for kids–prepare to make a mess, a masterpiece, and memories at Spin Art Nation. This fun date night craft handles the cleanup while you create a one-of-a-kind spin art painting you can take home.
Pop into a pottery painting shop like Color Me Mine! Fun craft date ideas: each of you picks a piece of pottery to paint to give to your partner when you’re finished, or collaborate on a larger couple’s project piece for you to enjoy together.
String art isn’t just for summer camp anymore! Get in on this crafty home decor trend by purchasing a kit to finish at home or take a class. There are tons of designs to choose from, so you’re bound to find something that fits your’s and your partner’s style.
This isn’t your typical art class. Whether it’s BYOB or hosted at a location with a bar, grab your honey and learn how to paint while you enjoy a drink or two. Each class has a different painting you’ll learn, so you can choose what you’d like to paint and register for that specific class.
You don’t have to be a great artist to do this fun and romantic craft date idea. This can even be a free activity—just use a regular pencil and printer paper or go big with a sketchbook and charcoal pencils. Keep the drawings a surprise until you’re both finished, and then reveal them to each other. Don’t worry about accuracy. It’s all about love!
If you’re looking for a relaxing night in, why not have your own paint and sip at home? To participate in couples projects such as this one, buy a pack of canvases, a variety of paint colors, brushes, and either source inspiration online or come up with an idea on your own. Then, you can paint and spend time together without leaving the house!
This is a two-part date! Go for a walk or hike together, respectfully collecting leaves and flowers, and then bring them home. Press the leaves and flowers between parchment paper, and once they are dried, you can use them in a fun date night craft. Frame your collection, make a decorative bowl, and more!
You don’t need a pottery wheel or a kiln to make clay art! Air-dry clay is fun and simple to use. Even oven-baked clay is excellent for beginners. Buy enough clay so the two of you can each do a couple of DIY projects. Sculpt a ring dish, succulent pot, or even a statue of their dog! The sky’s the limit with what you can create for each other with clay.
This nifty trick is easy to accomplish with Mod Podge or gel medium. Take a printout of a cherished photo, flip it face down onto a smooth piece of wood, and apply the medium to the back of the photo. Almost like magic, the photo will transfer onto the wood. Print photos of camping trips and bonfires and each other, and you’ll have rustic wooden photo prints that make a great gift.
If you’re searching for crafts to do with your boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse that captures your love, this is it! Gather photos and mementos from a trip, event, or just a great day you had with your significant other, and create a fun collage-inspired display in a floating frame. You can both arrange and decide what to include in the frame.
Photo magnets are super inexpensive to make—you just need the magnets! Glue cut-out photos onto magnets for a fun gift for your honey, or make your own magnetic frame with craft scraps around the house. Since the frames are small, you don’t need a lot of materials.
Brewing beer, like cooking, is a DIY process you can carry out in your kitchen. The goal is to turn starch into sugar, yeast into alcohol, and hops into a flavorful beverage. You do so with a starter kit and a little bit of patience (the brewing process takes time, after all). This is a unique DIY for couples project that partners who enjoy a tasty beverage will love to do together.
Gardening is a relaxing and tremendously rewarding way to spend time with your loved one. You can use a garden to grow food in the summer or experiment with flowers and fragrant herbs in the spring. You don’t need a large backyard or a green thumb to get started. In fact, even if you have never planted anything before, you can still turn your garden into a lush and beautiful space.
You don’t have to be in a serious relationship to do these fun DIY projects for couples. Taking a pottery class or getting a little messy at Spin Art Nation are great date night options for couples, no matter how long you’ve been together. The goal of couples crafts is to have fun and get to know each other better, and creating art with another person can be a special experience.
So, what are waiting for? Pick one of these activities and get ready to have some fun!
