By definition alone, you may agree that we’re all makers in one way or another. There are makers of art, technology, education and even the freshest nutrition bars ever created. Whether or not you’ve thought of yourself as such, this fall is your time to shine as one. Introducing MakersKit: seriously cool DIY projects for just about everyone.
MakersKit founders and friends Mike Stone and Jawn McQuade, both innately creative guys, teamed up for their first side project together, which was teaching DIY workshops in San Francisco. The side project took off and became wildly popular. In order to keep up with demand, they created DIY kits that are paired with video tutorials so that anyone, anywhere can create something amazing. Pretty darn cool, if you ask us.
With the holidays fast approaching, we couldn’t stop scrolling down all the DIY projects we wanted to get our hands on and make for our families and friends (and possibly a few to keep for ourselves). Here are a few of our favorite kits to date:
Hanging Air Plant Terrarium Kit + Safari Miniatures
Hanging Air Plant Kit
Raise your own Tillandsia, also known as an air plant. The Hanging Air Plant Terrarium MakersKit includes everything you need to create the perfect environment for caring for one. In the DIY video tutorial, you’ll see how to take care of the little guy the easy way, just spray with the included water atomizer once a week and place in a bright, sunny spot. The finished terrarium is small and compact, great for hanging in the kitchen, on bedside table or by your work desk.
Vial Terrarium Necklace
18k Gold-Filled Vial Terrarium Necklace Kit
Upgrade your jewelry collection with real 18k gold-filled materials included in our creative little kit.
