know how DIY projects go. You think of an idea, you figure out how to make it, run to the store, realize you forgot something, run back to the store, fail miserably on your first attempt, curse all crafts for 24 hours, and finally have success at last. Sometimes it helps to have a head start, or a leg up in the process. Mail order craft kits can help.
There are lots of versions out there for kids. I'm sticking to the ones for adults!
Shown above, We Make Collective is a new initiative started by Francesca of Fall for DIY. You receive a kit every two months for £30. Each kit is created by a member of the collective.
The monthly To DIY For Box from Darby Smart will send you a box with everything you need to make one project. It's a surprise what's in each box but past projects include wood-burned cutting boards and metal stamped jewelry.
Brit Kits are available through Brit & Co. and range between $9 and $79. Projects are available for both kids and adults. Above is the Cocktail Party Kit for $32.
For The Makers has a series of kits, most of which involve jewelry making. The Confetti Trail Tea Towel Kit is one of the exceptions and cost $24.
