Lets face it, with the growing popularity of sites like Pinterest, the pressure to be a fantastic ‘Do It Yourselfer’ has increased beyond what most of us are capable of. I mean do you have the time or creative capabilities that these DIY projects so vitally need? Maybe. Maybe not. This is why a company like Darby Smart is so necessary.
What is Darby Smart you ask? Oh I’m happy to fill you in.
You know those super creative DIY projects that seem too amazing to think of, let alone recreate? Well Darby Smart is a company that takes those projects and turns them into easy DIY kits that you can make at home. For example, let’s say you love these yellow terra cotta candles. I mean why wouldn’t you? They’re pretty cute. Well if you want to make them, you can order an oh so handy DIY kit. It includes 4 mini pots, wax, wicks, skewer sticks, paint (any colors), glue, and a paint pen and brush. It also comes with specific instructions to be sure your project turns out correctly.
Seems pretty easy right? It is.
So I’ve gone through their projects pretty thoroughly and have found 5 of my favorites. Check one of these out, or see if there is something else that suits your fancy. Either way, I highly recommend checking this site out. It is almost too good to be true.
