I received the engraving kit and I love it! I practiced on an old glass weigh scale to get the hang of engraving. I then started the glass coasters using pictures off google. I am sooo happy with how they turned out! It’s very relaxing and is a great stress reliever. I have a few people now wanting me to make them sets of coasters :)
Update to Disappointed. I was helped by Kevin and was given an offer of another box and it went well. I was taken care of quickly and with good service. Thanks
I loved this project. The wreath came out perfect. The direction were awesome. Cant wait for my next box.
I didn't like this month. I thought a wreath was kind of boring, esp as it wasn't anything new or different. Also the flowers/leaves weren't cut from the steams and were difficult to cut, as I do not own a wire cutter. I hope next month is better
Though I disliked the Nov box, it was high quality material and Jack offered me a free box, the resin coasters. I loved it! the directions where simple and I had never used resin before. I know future boxes will be fun
FedEx is awful, but the craft was fun. Got 2 boxes for my mom and I to do for mother's day. We both really enjoyed the alcohol painting. Neither of us had tried this before. The directions were easy to follow. We also looked online for additional ideas and examples.
I got this present for my 28 year old sister, and she loved it! Instead of doing the arrow design on the peg board, she elected to do a mountain scene in honor of her home state Colorado. So much fun seeing her create. Everything was packed well and instructions were clear, included all needed materials which made it even better. Would absolutely recommend, and I will be ordering again!
I don't like that printed instructions didn't come with the project.
I totally enjoyed making the wreath! All supplies were included and the instructions were right on.
I tried several colors of yarn & finally decided to stain the board & add my own flair to the string art. Since I had never tried one it was so much fun learning how to do this.
Honestly, for the money I expected more. I was thrilled with customer service though and that goes a long way with me.
I had a lot of fun with this box. It's my first month subscribing, and I got the engraving kit.
I was a little apprehensive at first, because I've never been very good at drawing straight lines so I expected to mess everything up.
However, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. After just a little bit of practice on some spare metal I had lying around, I learned some of the basics and then I got started on the glass coasters using the provided stencils. They turned out a lot better than I thought they would! I'm just a little obsessed now.
It's been a really nice stress reliever after a long day at work! I'm looking forward to my next box already!
Katelyn, thank you for the best comments ever! Let us know when you open up your own Etsy shop of engraved glass coasters:)
And we also find it to be the best stress reliever...as we say, crafting is cheaper than therapy!!!
I love tis box!
I was really not happy with this kit. The brush was unusable, & the "carafe" was a joke. It's a bottle with a narrow neck. It's not possible to put one of your paper patterns inside it.
Plus, there should have been a warning about how quickly the paints dry out, not just on the glass (which isn't a problem) but in the pallette, on the brush, on your hands ... fortunately I had a bottle of acetone, since the tiny bottle of paint thinner was gone in about 10 minutes.
It was disappointing: messy, awkward & cheaply curated. I wound up throwing the whole thing away. Please do better next month!
UPDATE: Kevin from Adults & Crafts reached out to me immediately. He apologized & offered me a free box. I picked the glass etching box, got it in 2 days & have enjoyed it immensely.
Thank you for the superb customer service & the personal touch. Looking forward to my next box!
This is one of the best art subscription boxes ever. Really great projects, with everything you need and written directions with pictures, just wonderful! And with so much packed into one box, it’s worth every penny!
Love the products

I love the kits I have recieved. They are fun to do.
I was expecting a woodburning box. The ads are somewhat misleading. This box is filed away for grandkids to do their Christmas present for parents. Thanks. Hoping to receive a woodburning kit before the holidays so I am able to make these gifts. Don't know how good until later.
I LOVE these kits, awesome idea, it is hit or miss, unfortunately I received a box too difficult for me, but Kevin will work with you, I hope to see holiday kits. Thank you guys so much
Love the variety of projects. I get to try new things without the worry of spending a lot of money just to try something. 💯 Love
This was such a fun project. The materials are of high quality, the instructions clear, and it took just about an hour. Really wonderful, and I cannot wait for my next box to arrive next month! Thank you so much!!
My fiancé ordered three boxes for a Christmas present. He made a space, bench and got me a special seat so I could be out in the welding shop with him while he worked on his car restoration project. I really enjoyed making the sign, the resin soap dish, and the star string art boxes. I gave the sign to my older brother to put in his kitchen as he is a retired Chef. I put the name of his dream restaurant on it, and he has never changed it. ...
Not a very exciting project. Could have benefited from more stencils (pictures and inspirational phrases), dye colors other than just blue, and the addition of beads, tubes, etc. to make the macramé portion of the project less boring. Not sure if I am going to keep my subscription after receiving this type of project. It didn’t seem like much thought was put into it.
UPDATE: Seller explained why there were no extras in this kit and offered a replacement kit since I was not very happy with this one. Updated my review accordingly. Very responsible and responsive company.
Loved this box, it wasn't difficult at all, it was very relaxing although staining got a little messy but I could deal with that. It reminded me of when I went with my sister to a "board and brush" except without all the expenses....it was fun.
Super easy and didn't allow for much creativity (fake succulent terrarium)
I received a three month subscription as a Christmas gift. What a wonderful idea! Fun crafts to look forward to each month. The anticipation, creation and results brightened up the winter months.
