Super easy and didn't allow for much creativity (fake succulent terrarium)
I was rather disappointed as none of the crafts were particularly useful to me. I also didn't think they warranted the price. One was for a mug stand and two plain white mugs. That certainly isnt valued at $30.00 plus. The one I received this week i s basically just a bag of cement with instructions to make a small planter. Again, not worth the cost. I'm going to cancel my subscription.
It took me almost 2 weeks to get a crate I paid for a month prior. That is why I cancelled it. And it was just making candles. I was hoping for something a little more interesting.
the idea of making a tray with resin with pressed flowers seems a little kitshy-tacky. The resin treatment to the cutting board a while ago was fun. Maybe a resin bracelet that one could customize? I can't see myself displaying this in my home!
Sorry, but this was not what I was expecting. For me not a revelation protect so it would just become junk to get rid of. .
Could purchase the supplies at local craft stores for about $10 and find instructions on Pinterest. Thought the quality would be much higher.
Okay service overall. Only speaking from six months of experience, but there was too much painting and not enough crafting. More importantly, the included component quality and project design was often lackluster, and it made for childish projects that you did not feel like keeping in your home. I think the subscription would make a great gift for an artistic pre-teen, and I could imagine the kid proudly filling their room with the projects, but it was not great for the intended audience.
6/19 Update (was 2, now 3 stars): While I stand by everything I originally said in my review, I am updating my review to acknowledge the owner’s level of concern for customer feedback and exceptional customer service. After I left my review, the owner followed up with me to ask about why I was unhappy and specifically what I thought needed improvement. He wanted examples and seemed genuinely interested in receiving the critical feedback. Kudos to the owner for taking reviews to heart and reaching out to dissatisfied customers to try and make things right.
The first box was ok but not something i will use most of. hoping future ones are better. going to give it a few more months. I do reviews on you tube and always looking for good boxes to refer other crafters to.
The frames were not very good quality but it was ok I just dont have need to frame spayed papers.
All in all it is worth the price just not my style
The project was a sign using three planks of wood that you stain and nail together. The letters are stenciled on and then nails are used to outline the letters and then they are filled in with yarn. The idea is very creative but the project of nailing and running yarn through the nails was tedious and I didn’t really like the way it looked. We decided to use paint markers and paint the letters instead. It was a cute idea and my boyfriend and I enjoyed being crafty together but an overall 3/5. It’s not something I would want but was fun to do.
Fun project that I did with my daughter, but I'm allergic to scents, so it was a tough one. Beautiful outcome!
Fun idea, but was disappointed that the materials seem kinda cheap. Also I thought there was going to be materials for us to each make our own project together. Only my first box, but cancelling anyways. I feel I can spend less at a craft store and be happier.
Not really what I had expected. I hope next month is more along the lines of a craft rather than magic markers and some pictures to color in
My freelance artist daughter came across your subscription service and thought it would be a great idea for us to do this together. She knows that I've been looking to do more creative things. So, I subscribed to receive two boxes for three months.
This was the first delivery. It's a box of watercolor paint markers and pages, cards, etc. to color. Given that the market is and has been flooded with these types of coloring books for years, I think there was a lack of creativity and originality that went into curating this. Overall, I'm very disappointed.
I had hoped for something like wood burning, mosaics, and similar unique crafts. I am hopeful that the next two will be much better!
This item came defective, however the company responded right away and stated they would send a replacement as well as an extra item for our inconvenience. This was awesome for a small company. The craft was more for a child in my opinion but I guess some adults are beginners and this would be for them. I will stay with them for now to see a couple more boxes before making a final decision. But the customer service is spot on.
I thought it would be something a little more then just basically a box with painted cutouts. Hoping next one is much better.
Not worth the price for me. Kind of large. Perfer multiple smaller lanterns.
I always wanted to try an acrylic pour. Now I have the opportunity. Very good quality products and a fun activity. What more could I ask for? This is a great craft subscription to try. For someone who purchases art supplies,, this product is well worth the cost.. Thank you.
I received a macrame plant hanger kit. It was cute. Macrame is not one of my favorite crafts.
It would have been nice if multiple colors of paint for the wood frame could have been sent instead of just black.
This was my first box and it looks like it is a fun project will see what I get next month to get a better idea
I do not have a crafty gene in my body and I was looking to learn. When my first box arrived it was very clear this was not for me. I spoke with CrateJoy, explained my situation and within hours of my initial contact with them my money was refunded.
I would suggest you give them a try and if you’re dissatisfied they quickly resolve or refund your purchase......it made me feel valued and they were actually very easy to work with.
And I’ll go a step further and say I am leaning towards giving them a second try
Interesting gift for the true crafter, many different choices. Customer service is excellent, I had a problem with a box, it was resolved, credited and a new one sent very quickly.
Embroidery is not what I would consider a craft. Not happy with this one.
This is an edit from my last review. Kevin and his team really went out of their way to remedy my issues. They made sure through email to let me know how this happened and even supplied the tracking numbers. Kevin also keep track of this shipment and let me know when it was delivered. Thank you for making me feel that you all were on top of taking care of this issue. Chance Ellis
Shipping took a very long time. It was not clear that it wouldn’t ship until January 20th. When I purchased the box it gave me the option to choose when it would ship and I chose the end of December. I would have done earlier if I knew it wouldn’t ship for over a month
I liked the box but the instructions were a bit complicated
