We've covered kawaii, beauty, accessories, and fitness subscription boxes, and now it's time to delve into DIY. We know there's an inner craft hound in you. Do you love embellishing your clothing, decorating everything with washi tape, and creating things in your kitchen to give away to friends? Well, lucky lucky, because we have an array of selections for you.
While most subscription boxes are fun simply for the surprise element of what's inside, DIY boxes are fun for an additional reason: you actually get to do something with those fun ingredients inside. Perfect for a rainy day or inviting a couple of friends over, these kits allow you to get your hands a little dirty but come out on the other end with some pro-looking items. If you're the kind of person who already decorates their journal, or makes the occasional scented body oil or chapstick for friends, we have got the boxes for you.
Below, check out the best of the best, from companies that allow you to make everything from your own beauty products to home decor to even home remedies. There's something for everyone. Read on.
Cost: $25 a month for hand-picked art supplies, or $35 a month for premium hand-picked art supplies.
The dirt: Every month SketchBox delivers art supplies to your door along with a card featuring a unique piece of art on one side and the artist's bio on the back. Expect to get Copic Markers, Koi Watercolors, Montana Acrylic Paint Markers, Alphacolor Pastels, Caran d'Ache Luminance Colored Pencils, Charcoals, Graphite Sticks, Gum Erasers, and other materials and mediums for you to explore. What did we get? A full set of Ironlak fineliners along with a technical drawing pen, a Copic wide marker, and a Daler Rowney mini sketchbook. We loved this box not only for the high-end products it delivered but for being a source of inspiration. Receiving raw art supplies in the mail just made us want to create, and we broke open our journal immediately to test out the fineliners and start sketching away.
