With the dog days of summer still lingering, you might be looking for some relaxing things to do. At Pine View Village apartments in Flagstaff, Arizona, we want you to stay cool while also expressing your creative side before the summer weather ends. Here are three fun and inexpensive hobbies you can enjoy.
Take your selfie skills to a whole new level by learning a few photography tricks to make your pictures pop. Local photography and nature clubs regularly offer classes and opportunities for beginners and pros to improve their skills. You can also take online courses or watch some YouTube videos to learn more about lighting, props or flat lay photography skills for your Instagram feed.
You do not need to go outside to try your hand at container gardening. Growing herbs that you can use for cooking, creating a cactus garden or arranging indoor plants and flowers on a shelf is easy and inexpensive. All you need are some unique containers found at a flea market or yard sale, indoor potting soil, a sunny window and your favorite plants. Let your creativity take over and before you know it, you will have a green thumb!
Give Old Things New Life
Flea markets and yard sales are also the perfect places to find inexpensive treasures that can be used to decorate your apartment. Old wooden crates make for great shoe racks or extra storage, and a good coat of paint will breathe new life into forgotten furniture. Just strolling around and looking for inspiration is fun and keeps the creative juices flowing.
Whether you are taking nature pictures out on our beautiful grounds or redecorating your studio apartment with living plants and recycled treasures, Pine View Village apartments in Flagstaff is the perfect place to enjoy new hobbies.
