For the Makers DIY Subscription Box Review – Dec 2014
For the Makers is a monthly DIY subscription box centered around jewelry. (There’s usually at least one non-jewelry project too).
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The collection this month is titled “Stargazer.” Here are the crafts included for this month’s projects: Full Moon Bracelet, Night Sky Magnets, Supernova Earrings, and Stellar Embroidery
The Subscription Box: For The Makers
The Cost: $29 a month
The Products: The materials and instructions needed to make 4 projects every month.
Ships to: US
The back of the card lists the items from the box you need for each project.
Here are all of the included raw materials for this month’s crafts.
Full Moon Bracelet
Here’s how my earrings and bracelet turned out! I love these earrings. It doesn’t show well in the photo, but the gems on the earrings are a very pale blue. I like the bracelet in the tutorial, but unfortunately I just couldn’t get all the knots right – or at least not quite in the right place/direction as they needed to be. I wish they had included short videos in the tutorial for tying the knots because it was pretty hard to tell exactly how things were supposed to go just by text and a photo.
This is probably my favorite project in the box this month, but I don’t really know what to do with it (maybe I’ll find a place for it by my jewelry space in my bedroom). I like sewing, stars, and glitter, and this project had a little bit of all of them!
Night Sky Magnets
These magnets are way prettier than any on my fridge right now, so I will definitely use them.
Verdict: I really enjoyed the December For the Makers box! There wasn’t an awful lot of challenge in the level of difficulty, though, which I think made me put off doing the projects less than when the box seems super intimidating. I also think everything fits my style well and I know I’ll get use out of the items.
What do you think about the December For the Makers box?
