DGY's DIY Jewelry Kit + Free Crochet Patterns!

Hi fellow crocheters,

While I have recently put together a roundup of free crochet patterns (COVID-19 Edition!), I also want to share with you some tangible goodies that you can get delivered to YOUR door to enhance your craft projects!

With craft stores temporarily closing and kids in need of fun activities, now is a great time to support those small craft businesses.  Darn Good Yarn offers a lot of great craft projects for kids and adults of all ages, from amigurumi sets, advent calendars, and DIY kits, to knitting and crochet patterns, and more!  Let's get crafty during this quarantine!

I'm excited to share with you Darn Good Yarn's DIY Jewelry Kit!

This is a really fun one for benders and everyone who likes making their own bracelets, earrings, and necklaces.  The kit itself contains 14 different kinds of beads, wires, earring hooks, and a clear plastic case.  Oh, and easy-to-follow instructions too, of course! 

I think this is an especially fun hands-on project to do with children as it's very kid-friendly!  Kiddos will love putting together their own jewelry pieces, and what a feeling of accomplishment they'll gain after making something amazing like this out of their own hands!

If you'd like to incorporate the beads into a crochet project, I have the quick, easy, and FREE Mint Spirit Earrings pattern that would look lovely with beads!  These earrings are light-weight and small, so they're also easy to mail as gifts to your loved ones who would appreciate a "Thinking of You" gift!

I hope that this post sparks some crafty inspiration for you!  As always, wishing everyone safety and peace during this crazy time~ 

Much love,
