As we find ourselves with much more time on our hands, the world is getting craftier. Here are the Instagram accounts we value for crafts…
1. 5-minute crafts
The best crafting account of all time. With over 41m followers, it’s clear we’re not the only ones who think so. They cover absolutely everything and explain silently through short how-to videos. Definitely, an account to follow.

2. Mrs. Hinch
The famous Sophie Hinchliffe (Known on Instagram as Mrs.Hinch) has hacks for everything, not just cleaning – although it’s useful to follow her for crafty cleaning tips too. She shows people what to make from cheap stores like B&M, eBay and Home Bargains… or nature, so good for all budgets!

5. Stacey Soloman
First, a singer, then known for being on Loose Women, now during lockdown she has become a super crafting genius – from fun food animals for her kids, to make her home more homely with (almost) rubbish turned into useful objects, very good on the sustainability scale (in one of her videos Stacey even uses empty tomato ketchup bottles to make pencil potholders for her sons!).
