Creative Living with DIY Happy Kits - Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I love browsing Pinterest and viewing all the glorious handmade projects.  Once in a while I'll pin a project, thinking I"ll get to it at a later date.  There's even a couple crafts I've tried that didn't turn out so well.  All in all, I'm just not that crafty.

Lo and behold, there's a company that puts together craft kits that even the average layperson can do.  DIY Happy Kits  feature award winning innovative DIY craft kits that nurture creativity and adventure in all ages. Their kits are great for crafting, and handmade gifts, with new additions every week through the year. You have the option to purchase individual kits or to purchase monthly or quarterly subscriptions.

I received two DIY Happy Kits, the Soothing DIY Bath Salts Kit and a  Mini Hand Soap Making Kit.  I'll admit, I was a little apprehensive at first.  After all, if anyone can mess up a craft, it's me!  As it turns out, both kits were super simple to do and the finished products turned out great.

The Soothing DIY Bath Salts Kit included European Spa Bath Salts, Passion Flower Tea, Vanilla Tea, four tin cans, twine, and gift tags.  The materials were individually bagged and labeled, and the instructions were super easy to understand.  All I had to do was divide the bath salts between the four tins, add some of the tea to each tin, then close the lid.  The last step was adding the gift tags and twine.
materials for the soap making kit

The Mini Hand Soap Making Kit was almost as easy as the other kit.  Within its box was dried hibiscus petals, melt and pour soap, gift tags and ribbon, and a soap mold.  To create the soaps I just had to melt the soap base down in the microwave, then pour it into each individual mold.  After that I mixed in the dried hibiscus petals for color, then let it all set and harden for a few hours.  I did not use the gift tags in this particular kit because I set the soaps on a dish in my bathroom for use.

I don't know if all the kits are as easy as the two I did, but I liked that I could do something that was crafty without becoming frustrated.  The end results created pretty bath products that I can say were "handmade with love".

I'm not crafty either, however, I'd like to be. These kits would be perfect for me.
