Darby Smart

I love making things. There’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment when you’ve finished putting something together from scratch, or even just fixing something. I especially love craft projects, and today I want to share with you an amazing subscription box that focuses on crafting, and supplies you with all of the tools you need.

Darby Smart is a company that focuses on everything craft. Their website is jammed packed with DIY ideas that you can pull off in your own home, and if you are in need of supplies, you can buy those from them too! They also offer a subscription box that is guaranteed to please. Most of their projects are fairly easy, so your kids can help create beauty too!


Recently, I received a box from Darby Smart with an adorable sequin planter project inside. Everything that I needed was inside to create two gold sequined flowerpots, and luckily for me, my niece (who is 9) was there to create as well.


Instead of sending directions, Darby Smart posts the directions to their projects online for all to see. I think this is fantastic, because you never have to worry about losing the directions before you finish your project. I also like that you can see the directions before purchasing the items for your project, so that you can see if it’s something you really will be able to do.

After setting up a place to complete our project, my niece and I got right to work. I did one planter while she did the second. My husband even came over to check out our work, and to offer assistance where needed. We didn’t actually need any help, but I think he likes to feel useful sometimes.

The planters were totally easy to put together. The glue dried quickly, which we figured out right away when painting it on the pot, but overall I didn’t have any complaints. My niece was excited to take her part of the project home and share it with her mom. I think I won the “Best Aunt” award with this one!


It feels like all too often that I’m searching for my next DIY, and Darby Smart doesn’t allow me to feel like that! If you sign up for their monthly subscription box, aka the “To DIY For” box, you will be surprised each month with a new and unique craft project. The box is only $19 a month, and they bill monthly, so you can cancel at any time. They also offer a box for teenager called “Darby Girl”. Darby Girl is a bi-monthly subscription box that’s created just for the teenager in your life. It costs $19 a month as well.

I would highly recommend signing up with Darby Smart to anybody who is at all interested in crafts. Even if you don’t think you are very good, or are interested in getting started, I guarantee you will love this box! Sign up here today! As an added bonus, just for our readers, you can save 25% on your purchase now through May 25th. Use the code DIY25 at checkout!
