Ever thought of making your own bath bombs or hot sauce? We’ve found 5 DIY kits that you can order from around the world to tap into creative side!
DIY (do-it-yourself) projects are the exact points that intersect on a graph when you chart “productivity” against “fun”. If you’re looking to spend some time alone at home to recharge your social battery, why not try a crafty hobby and make something for yourself? Here are 5 DIY kits that you can ship from across the world!
1. Embroidery Kits
Embroidery, simply put, is using needle and thread to embellish and decorate cloth. Traditionally, embroidery was used to tell stories. Now, it’s a fun way to decorate clothes, bags, or make wall art.
With the Stitch-a-Tote™: Northwoods (US$32 / S$43.50) embroidery kit from Heidi Boyd, try your hand at embroidery and get a cute embroidered tote bag once you’re done! The kit comes with everything you might need for the project – including a tote bag, embroidery floss, needles and an embroidery hoop.
2. Candle Making Kit
Candles can be a great home decoration tool. Not only do candles make a room smell great, they’re also a cute room decoration.
If you want to try your hand at candle making, check out this beginners kit from Candle Science. Their Soy Candle Making Starter Kit (US$31.43 / S$42.70) is available in their Fall/Holiday scents, and is a great way to spend time with family while doing a fun activity. After all, TV and board games are bound to get a little boring after a while.
Each kit makes up to 6 small 8 oz candles, which means you can also give them as gifts. Unfortunately, Candle Science doesn’t ship to Singapore. We recommend using an international freight forwarder like comGateway, vPost or ezbuy’s ezShip.
