Nine crafty Instagram accounts to follow

These crafty Instagram accounts are guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing.

Many of us are now looking for new ways to fill our time and keep ourselves entertained. Whether it’s knitting, DIY or upcycling, a lot of us are turning to social media for inspiration on what to do and where to get started.

So, we thought it would be a good idea to showcase some wonderfully crafty Instagram accounts that are sure to give you your fix of inspiration.
