15 Hobbies That Are as Calm as They Are Silly

Topic Started By: goddy       Created: Wed, Oct 19th, 2022, 7:54 pm

Activities that persons enjoy doing in their spare time is referred to as hobbies. For example I like to collect stamps from different countries.

Some of the best Hobbies out there make tedious activities more exciting, like:

1. Extreme ironing hobbies

Extreme ironing hobbies

There isn't much to explain about the rules, it's just ironing clothes, but in the most outrageous of areas like on top of mountains or on ski slopes. It's also a pretty organized sport. It has its own International Association and its world championship. The first one took place back in 2002. 

The original extreme Ironist is Phil Shaw, who came up with this hobby when faced with an impossible choice either do his chores and iron his clothes or go rock climbing. He went for both at the same time. Phil decided to call himself Steam and went on an international tour to promote extreme ironing.

2. Painting hobbies

 Painting hobbies

If you like painting and Miniatures too. You might want to give this hobby a shot too. Painting on pennies, some have tried depicting the most intricate Landscapes on the tiny canvas, and even if it might take a lot of effort and patience, it does look awesome in the end.

3. Rocks hobbies

Rocks hobbies

Speaking of mindful activities, try balancing rocks now and then. It means taking some unusually shaped rocks and balancing them to stay vertical on uneven surfaces. Bonus tip, if you have a camera lying around, you'll surely Amaze your friends with these pictures. It certainly looks like gravity stopped working when you see these amazing rocks almost floating around.

4. Stone-skipping hobbies

Stone-skipping hobbies

For those equally as passionate about rocks, you might also try Stone skipping, just bring a flat oval stone next time you stroll by a lake and try to make it bounce on the water's surface as many times as you can. The current record is pretty amazing, with 88 bounces and one single throw.

5. News rating hobbies

News rating has to be one of the funniest Hobbies out there. It means popping up as a passer-by in the background of Television reporters. It does take a lot of planning skills, and you really need to be both creative and spontaneous to bring out the best representations. The most talented news raider is a man named Paul Yarrow. He sneaked in a lot of broadcasts on TV. There're even collections of his appearances online if you're looking for some inspiration.

6. Candle hobbies

Don't you love it when you light up a new scented candle in the living room? Well, next time, that favourite candle of yours is just about done. You don't need to worry about wasting the last layer of wax at the lowest part of the jar. Leave it to the online communities to teach you how to make candles at home by mixing or reusing leftover wax. It's easy to remove that last layer of wax by heating the candle from the outside a bit, just enough to detach it from the glass container.

Otherwise, just slip the whole jar into the freezer. It works just the same. The next part is totally up to you. Melt the wax and place it in a smaller jar or mix different scents to create a new one, all you need to finish the candle is a new Wick, which you'll easily find online.

7. Perfumed hobbies

On the subject of perfumed hobbies, you might try making essential oils at home as well, especially if you have herbs or plants that you grow at home and don't want to waste them. People use crock pots to boil the plants until the oils separate and then use these Essences around their household for their laundry or even homemade cleaning products.

8. Aquascaping hobbies

Aquascaping hobbies

Here's another creative hobby that helps bring the outdoors closer to your living room. Aquascaping, it's a process through which you can create your own submerged or semi-submerged garden. You'll need some water-loving plants and a leak-proof container, like a fishbowl. It's also best if you use filtered or distilled water. It makes the whole garden looks a bit clearer. Add some clean gravel or substrate to the bottom of the container and arrange the plants to your liking.

You can try recreating scenes from your favourite movies or books, like shipwrecks or underwater kingdoms.

9. Airplane sick bags hobbies

You might not be able to try this unusual hobby if you don't like flying but just know there are people out there with big collections of airplane sick bags, and empty sick bags, don't worry. It's pretty self-explanatory. Just take those paper bags that the airlines provide before lift-off and add them to your collection. There are even sites where you can sell these bags or swap them with other collectors.

One airplane bag connoisseur from Singapore grew his collection to an amazing 388 bags. He managed to gather them from 186 different countries.

10. Moor hobbies

The people that can make the best impressions of a cow are called Moors and yes that's another example of an unusual hobby. It's a competitive sport too, in case you're wondering, the biggest prize can go up to one thousand dollars and the latest was one in Wisconsin by a 10-year-old boy.

11. Decoupage hobbies

Decoupage hobbies

Others find it relaxing to simply create things with their hands. That's where decoupage comes in, and it means covering an object with coloured paper or cutting out pictures by using glue.

The options are endless. You can try scraping boxes, book covers, or even old pieces of furniture, not to mention it's a nice way to customize your gifts.

12. Dog grooming hobby

For competitive dog grooming, you'll actually need to be a pet stylist first, but there are legitimate competitions that transform some dog breeds into locking artworks. They use dyes to colour the fur and various other utensils to sculpt the dog hairs. In some contests, all the styling needs to be done within a couple of hours.

Most competitive dog groomers like to work with poodles because their fur has the best characteristics for shaping and colouring. The dogs like the attention they get, and most importantly, it's mandatory for the competitors to use safe, non-toxic products.

13. Birds hobbies

While birds do great all by themselves, they do benefit from Human Assistance if Done Right. Native bird Watchers help them by planting native Hedges, installing bird boxes, and making watered areas. Like bird baths, more so, they help provide these birds with the right food so that they have the best nutrients to survive over the colder season or care for their young.

Some pet supply stores even provide pre-made bird food packs that may include special supplements for the birds.

14. Snowdrops hobbies

Snowdrops are some of the most loved flowers around the world since they let us know spring is just about to arrive. It's no wonder exclusive Snowdrop Societies exist online. There's even a name for Snowdrop lovers, galanthophiles. Flower-loving Hobbies aside, some people make a good living from growing these delicate plants as they can go for over 700 dollars.

15. Tree shaping hobby

Tree shaping is a great hobby, too if you have the patience for it. It involves taking trees or other Woody plants to create structures and art. They can be abstract or symbolic or actual functional elements like benches or chairs. Tree Shapers do their thing through a bunch of different methods, like instant tree shaping, which means bending the wood into the desired design until it retains the shape.

Then there is the gradual tree shaping which involves controlling the growth of the tree and guiding it along predetermined designed Roots by using jigs or wires. One famous tree shaper was John Krubsack, an American banker and farmer based in Wisconsin. He designed the first Grown chair, which was harvested back in 1914.
