Learn the art of candle making with these realistic looking (and smelling) hot cocoa candles! Using cleaner burning and longer lasting soy wax, you'll whip up a creamy chocolate wax base and top it with faux whip cream, marshmallows, and sprinkles. This kit makes 2 mugs of "cocoa" in adorable 4 oz mason jar mugs. This kit uses the microwave to melt wax, a simpler and safer method for our younger makers. Adult supervision always suggested with candle making and burning.
Order by December 30th to get this box!
Q: Is the current box a holiday box or the giving tree craft? Asked by Brooke H., October 2020
When you checkout, you have the option to ship immediately (5 biz days) or delay 1st shipment until December as a holiday gift. Gratitude Trees are shipping now for new subscribers. If you delay 1st shipment until December, it will be a different 1st kit. Most likely hot cocoa candles. Or something else winter, but not Christmas themed. Please note that we can not guarantee specific kits with subscriptions. Covid has increased delays with suppliers and reduced availability of some supplies. As a result, we may substitute another, but equally awesome craft kit to get orders out on time.
Q: If I signed up today 7/10/20, what is the current craft in the box? Do you sell past boxes? Thanks for any help or info you can provide😊Asked by Beth P., July 2020
Our Dream Catcher kit is the standard kit that we send for first time subscribers. They are in stock as of today, July 10th, though we do occasionally need to substitute other kits. A photo and preview are available in the Sneak Peek section of our Cratejoy Marketplace listing. Overstock (past) kits are available on our website. You'll have to look it up as its against guidelines to post it here.
Q: Can you tell what the craft would be if i ordered now?Asked by Jeannebartells, May 2020
As of 5/12, I am shipping the “For the Love of Bees” kit until these run out. I expect these will probably last for the next week, but can’t be certain. You can see it pictured in the Past Boxes section of the Cratejoy marketplace listing. Scroll down towards the bottom of this page, below Reviews.
For everyone who might see this at a later date - I used to announce which kit would be available as a first kit and it would stay that way for 30 days. Since Covid-19, suppliers and incoming inventory have been erratic and subject to delays. So, what’s available to ship changes too frequently to keep this updated and guarantee it. If you need a guarantee, I’d suggest checking out...
Q: Any idea when the currently sold out Terra Create for two will be available?Asked by Holly V., March 2020
Bought this for my daughter and i to do. Chose the for two people... we got enough stuff for four people to make. Everything was very well put together and we had a lot of fun. we are excited for the next box and wish we could order some of your past boxes while we wait !
We received our first box this month. We had enough materials to make 4 windchimes - not just 2! Beautiful craft - great quality items. My daughter and I had so much fun with this one and are looking forward to many more!
My two girls 12 and 14 love this box and so do I. The activities are perfect for their age. Much more advanced than kids craft kits. Also each idea is so unique that many of the crafts are brand new to these seasoned crafters. As a mom I love how I can get a single subscription which included enough supplies for two people. I can't say enough how wonderful Terra Create is. Supplies are generous and unique. Directions are detailed and readable with lots of pictures. Favorites have included the October Halloween zen sandbox and the scented candles. This would be enjoyed by adults as well as teens.
I am 73, a lifelong crafter who was in a rut. I have done some of these alone, some with my 9 year old granddaughter (sometimes with "help" from her 5 year old brother). I have learned new skills, and the children have enjoyed them and their results have been good enough to display or give as gifts. The kits are well planned and organized, the instructions are clear and leave room for individual creativity, and we have had a great time doing them. The extra educational information in each kit is engaging, and the 9-year old is especially interested in it. The "final products" have been every bit as presentable as the items in kits marketed for adults only. I wholeheartedly recommend this kit for crafters of any age, and think it would be especially appropriate for family projects or for adult beginning crafters,
My 9 year old loves these. The projects are unique and good quality, the instructions are easy to follow, and the owner is very responsive. Better than other crates we've tried.
This is a worthwhile quality product. The direction booklet is excellent- well designEd and written. The projects could work for most ages, even adults. My 11 and 13 year olds can execute these well. The materials are quality and the projects are useful and/or beautiful.
I got the monthly box 'for two' for my daughter and me. We just did the wind chimes this weekend and absolutely loved it. We learned how to do something new and enjoyed doing it. And our creations turned out beautiful. My husband will be hanging them outside today. It's a plus that all three of us really love wind chimes. Looking forward to our next box!
I ordered a box subscription for 2 so both by children could enjoy arts and crafts together and not only was there enough supplies for both of them our entire family was able to enjoy making such beautiful dream catchers together and the materials sent were of highest quality and worth the cost. I have ordered at least two other craft boxes for the kids and canceled due to cheep supplies or lack of supplies but I plan to keep this box subscription coming as I was extremely happy with how everything was packaged and the amount and quality of supplies. Thanks for bringing our entire family together for some quality craft time. We are excited and awaiting this months box and can't wait to see what beautiful arts and crafts we get to enjoy.
I purchased this for me. I have done a lot of crafts. I enjoy the journey to create but when done it would go in a drawer somewhere. Not these, they are gift or display worthy. Good directions but allows you to be creative.
What a lovely box. Everything about it is superb. My 12 year old daughter received a 3 month subscription. The first box is the hot cocoa candles. The instructions are very clear, the supplies are included, there was a history of chocolate for extra educational experience, and the end result is super cute. My daughter loves it so much. Thank you for the fantastic experience.
