If you don't want to opt for regular painting, then try fabric painting. You can use old fabrics and give them a new look by painting them. Try fabric painting on your fabric bags, handbags, t-shirts, bed linen, table linen, bed sheets, tablecloths, etc. Get fabric colors, draw designs using a pencil (you can use stencils for designs) and start filling in the colors. You can use pearl colors for giving a glossy look to the painting. Fabric painting is a fun craft which can be tried on a number of items of daily use. Similarly, glass painting or pottery painting are also good craft ideas to try out.
