Example of an easy and nice handicraft?
"easy" and "nice" are subjective terms.
In general, knitting and quilting are well thought of, and after learning and practicing would be "easy".
Some wishing a more traditionally "male" handicraft might choose wooden toy making. That also requires practice to make it "easy".
