We’ve all been spending an awful lot more time indoors of late, with many of us taking to arts and crafts to give us something new to learn and do. The craft subscription box is booming, for both adults and kids, and we’ve picked five of the best to keep those fingers busy.
Leading art and craft supplier Baker Ross has tapped into the subscription box trend with its Craft-it Box offering. Each box is packed with craft kits and fun activities aimed at children aged 3-9 years old. Kits include materials and instructions to make toys and decorations, with each box costing £9.95 including UK mainland delivery.
This one’s for the keen sewers among us who fancy making their own clothes. Each box provides everything you need to crack on with an item of clothing such as a dress, blouse or jacket, complete with matching accessory. Boxes are £29.90 each and delivered every two months.
Little Box of Crochet
Choose from the Little Box of Crochet or the Little Box of Knitting to receive everything you need to make a beautiful project, every two months. Both boxes contain beautiful yarn, a pattern and a special gift, and cost £49.95 plus postage
Cosy Craft Club
Unsure which craft you want to commit to? Cosy Craft Club could be the box for you, providing the materials you need to discover a different craft each month. Previous boxes have included resin kits, cross stitch, and mosaic. Each box costs £24, or you can prepay to unlock a discount.
If it’s your teenager who needs something to busy themselves with, Makerly Crafts may have the perfect box for them. Aimed at both teens and adults, each box contains the tools, materials, patterns and instructions needed to master a new crafting skill, such as jewellery and candle-making, crochet and Hama beads. A recurring monthly subscription costs £15 a month.
