This month’s craft is a Beer Caddy! These are the instructions that were included. I like that every step is illustrated with a photo! That’s so helpful!


This picture was also included, which shows everything you should have received in your box.


These supplies were provided in my box. From home, I had to provide some newspaper, a hammer, and a couple of disposable cups to put the paint in.


Here’s my completed beer caddy! I love it! Isn’t it pretty? To start, I had to sand all the wooden pieces and then paint them. Then I nailed all the pieces together as directed.


The last step was to screw in the bottle opener. I love the bottle opener! It’s such a nice touch! This picture also illustrates the biggest problem I had with this box: the pieces didn’t all fit together right. If you look closely on the lower right, you will see that the base is a little wider than the side, so the bottom slat is at a slight angle. Since this body of the caddy is only held together by nails, I’m not totally sure how long this caddy will last.


But we plan to use and enjoy it for now!

Verdict: I love Adults & Crafts! I don’t love woodworking as much as I love woodburning (from last month), but I really loved this project. I’m so happy with how it turned out, flaws and all. I just think they should be a little more careful about sizing the materials. It’s so important!

What do you think of Adults & Crafts?

  1. Oh man, if you like woodburning, you could have incorperated it into this project! Probably not good to do after the paint has been on, but you could still sand off some paint, burn a design in the wood, and re-paint!

  2. Anna, you did a great job! This is my 1st time reading a review for this subscription. I was a little turned off by the price of the box. Seems like alot of money for this project.

    • Hi Terri! Thank you! It seems with craft boxes there’s an ongoing debate around value. Yes, if you knew exactly what you were doing, if you were inspired to create this, if you could source only those materials in exactly the sizes you needed, if it didn’t cost you much to get the materials in terms of time and travel, and you knew how to do it, I’m betting you could do it for less. For me personally, I would spend a lot of time and money sourcing the materials, I don’t have a saw, and I wouldn’t know how to do it. All the non-tangible benefits make it worth it to me, personally. I know it’s not worth it to everyone though! It’s really a personal opinion I think.
