The Best Craft Kits for Adults

Best craft kits for adults to buy in the UK

If there’s anything better than going along to an in person craft class it’s got to be learning a new skill at home in your cosies.

When I was a kid sitting down with a DIY craft kit was my favourite way to spend a day and my favourite present for every occasion. There was no such thing as Pinterest to look for arts and crafts ideas in those days obviously, so my craft ideas and inspiration usually came packaged up pretty in kit form ready for me to discover my next passion. Beaded bracelets, felt animals, origami garlands, lip balm, scrunchies and oven baked fridge magnets are some kits that spring to mind and I was never happier than when I was learning something new with the help of a craft kit.

Fast forward over 20 years from when I was making myself scrunchies that looked cute but were completely useless, craft kits have come a hell of a long way and it's so exciting to know that if you've admired a beautiful handmade product on Pinterest or on a makers Instagram, there might be a chance you can learn the skills to do it yourself with the help of a kit!

Here's a selection of DIY craft kits that you can buy from independent makers who want to help you craft at home.
