6 Arts and Crafts Subscription Boxes to Get Your Creativity Flowing
Deciding on a new activity to try out can be of immense help to your mental health. Many hobbies, like sewing, puzzling, drawing, scrapbooking, are known to help reduce stress and anxiety, and that's always welcome.
Regardless if you're looking for something to fill your free time or your next obsession that takes over your life, why not also find your next passion? It's never too late to get into a new hobby.
Here are six arts and crafts subscription boxes that can help in your search.
Knit-Wise offers knit and crochet projects in a box with everything you'll need to finish the DIY activity. The items you get vary, but they're usually home pieces or accessories.
You get one project per box, two balls of yarn, materials, needles, and every other tool needed, along with thorough instructions to ensure completion. The best part is, you don't need any previous experience. You can be a complete novice, and you'll still manage to complete your project and, hopefully, have fun with it.
Knit-Wise offers an array of subscriptions. Knit-Wise: Knit Monthly, Knit-Wise: Crochet Monthly, and Knit-Wise: Quarterly Subscription. All three options start at $29. The first two can get up to $165, and the third can reach $110. There's also Knit-Wise: Just The Yarn, which costs between $12 and $72, and Knit-Wise: Just The Pattern that's digital and is between $8 and $40.
With Coloring And Classics, you can get an adult coloring book, a puzzle book, and a classic or critically acclaimed hardcover book (you choose the genre). The subscription provides an excellent opportunity to de-stress, take some time for yourself, and spend it doing whatever you're in the mood for—coloring, reading, or puzzling.
There are two subscription choices. The Monthly Coloring and Classics Box starts at $16.99 and can reach $168. It gets you what was already listed: coloring book, hardcover book, puzzle book.
You can also get the Monthly Coloring and Classics box Premium with Hand Roasted Coffee box, which, as you might have guessed, comes with coffee. You get everything from the other box along with 12oz of hand-roasted whole bean or ground coffee, and there's another perk, too.
Finally, you also get a free ebook. You can email Coloring And Classics which genre you'd like, and it sends you an ebook back. The subscription starts at $28.99 and can go as high as $312.
ThreadCrate offers a sewing subscription. It has crates for men, women, and kids and ensures it's size-inclusive. You get the pattern you'll be using, both printed and digital, and its sizing ranges from XS to 5XL.
You can choose between a Mini and a Full crate. The difference being that the full one gives you more goodies, but the basics you need to do your sewing project remain the same in both boxes. The perks in the full one include fabric clips and pins, a machine needle, and sewing extras and tools.
There's a three-month subscription available for both Mini and Full crates, and a month-to-month one. The women's Full three-month crate costs $173.50, and the Mini is $106.50. The monthly Full and Mini crates are $64.50 and $39.50, respectively.
Though you'd need to have some basic sewing knowledge, don't think you need to be a whizz at it. Every crate comes with thorough instructions to help you along the way. Of course, you'd also need to provide a sewing machine yourself.
If you're into puzzling, Puzzle Culture Box is what you need. Doing jigsaw puzzles has been known to reduce stress and anxiety and help you refocus your mind. You can spend less time worrying about life and more time filling in the picture before you.
Puzzle Culture Box offers themed boxes. You can get gothic-themed puzzles, other-worldly or holiday-specific ones, and so on. Within each box, you'll find puzzles with unique artwork, a content card that shows the print on the back, and a challenge prompt. The prompt offers different ways you can approach doing your puzzle.
The quarterly Puzzle Culture Box costs between $34.99 and $124.99, depending on how long you subscribe for, and the monthly one is between $27.99 and $285. The quarterly subscription contains a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle with three to five gifts, while the monthly box gets you a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle and two gifts.
Art soothes the mind, and Paletteful Packs offers you art supplies delivered straight to your door. Inside a Paletteful Packs box, you'll find a collection of art products that follows a theme.
Since it changes monthly, one time, you can get acrylic paint, the other charcoal, the following watercolors, and so on. Contents vary since supplies are different, but you'll always have everything needed to create your own work of art.
There are three subscriptions to choose from: Monthly Premier Paletteful Pack, Monthly Paletteful Petite Pack, and Monthly Young Artist Paletteful Pack. The first starts at $35 and can go as high as $402. The second is between $24 and $270, and the third, $30 and $342.
If you're looking to get crafty, look no further than The Adults & Crafts Crate. It provides everything needed to create your very own DIY wonder. Previous boxes have included a clock-making kit, a cement planter, a wine caddy, and so on.
Each box comes with one project and all the tools and materials you need to make it, plus thorough instructions to ensure successful completion. Some months you get functional items, others fun ones, and sometimes they're both.
You can choose between subscribing monthly or for three, six, and twelve months. It will cost you $33, $32, $31, and $30 per month, respectively. Plus, the annual $30 per month subscription comes with a $25 Amazon gift card. Don't worry if it sounds like too big of a commitment–you can cancel anytime.
