Feed The Need to Craft with DIY Project in a Box
A true crafter know crafting can make you crazy. The need to craft, 5 minutes on Pinterest and you are twitching with the need to make something. But forgetting supplies, running out of a much needed item,and not having time to run to the craft store, these can all be major bummers. All your crafting woes can be eliminated with Darby Smart boxed craft kits! Check out this kit.
Soy Candles Make You Melt
This soy candle kit lets you make 6 votive candles, so you can get creative. Here’s what my box contained.
• 6 votive glasses
• 2 Scents
• 3 blending colors
• 1lb soy wax (already shaved down)
• 6 soy wicks
• Easy to follow instructions
I set up everything and got to work. This was such an easy project ! My 7 year old was more then happy to sit on the other side of the counter and stir the wax color and fragrance in for me. By the way these candles smell wonderful, my scents were, lavender and coconut vanilla!
For being my 1st time making candles I was surprised at how easy it really was. I tried to be smart and dip the metal base of the wick into some wax and let it harden but as soon as I poured the next layer in it remelted. If you don’t know much about soy, it has a lower melting point so it doesn’t have to get very hot to melt. In hind sight I wonder if a glue dot on the bottom wold have held it in place better? Maybe. It wasn’t to challenging to get the base layer in and then just make the wick stand straight, I did end up using butter knifes to hold the wicks in place as the bottom layer cooled.
Kits and Monthly To DIY For boxes
I love the way my candles turned out and plan to order more kits from Darby Smart. Smart ideas for busy people. The last two months of the DIY For boxes have been a Cupcake kit, which was super cute for Valentines Day, and Ink blot coasters..which were so neat! These are only $19.00 a month.
Something for your teen too!
In addition to individual craft boxes, you can also order a monthly, there are also Darby Girl monthly boxes. January was Mini bulletin boards and February is a shrinky dink bracelet!
How cute would these be for a teen girl and at only $19.00 and shipped every other month they could be a birthday gift that keeps on giving! I think my 17 year old sister would love these!
