Originally I had planned to share a tutorial with you today but unfortunately I'm currently having problems with my laptop and am unable to get the photos properly edited. So instead I'm going to share the post I had planned for next Sunday; 10 DIY kits that would make great gifts this Christmas for any friends and family who love to craft!

With this kit you can create your own unique cross stitch design phone case. The kit comes complete with 4 embroidery threads in the colours of your choice. (Ships worldwide)

I've seen so many DIY terrariums online recently and they always look like so much fun to make. This kit includes everything you need to get you started for a low-maintenance project. (US only)
