Add DIY Craft Kits for Adults to Your Madeit Store

As an artist, you already have a knack for creating stunning handmade pieces. But have you considered expanding your offerings to include DIY craft kits for adults?

This growing trend is not only popular with search terms bringing in around 2900 searches per month in Australia, but it also provides a fantastic opportunity for you to reach new customers and diversify your product range.

Why DIY Craft Kits?

DIY craft kits are an excellent addition to your store for several reasons:

Expand Your Reach:

By offering DIY kits, you tap into a market that is eager to learn and create. Many adults are looking for creative outlets and enjoy the satisfaction of making something themselves. You could also look at selling components that you make to help others craft.

Sell your self-made components

Reduced Hands-On Time:

Unlike your more intricate handmade pieces, DIY kits require less hands-on creation time from you. This allows you to produce and sell more kits, increasing your overall sales.

Teach and Inspire:

Even if your primary craft is complex, there's always something you can teach others. Whether it's a simplified version of your art or the tools and techniques you use, sharing your knowledge can be incredibly rewarding.

    5 things to Include in a DIY Craft Kit

    A well-thought-out DIY craft kit should provide everything a customer needs to complete a project. Here's a breakdown of what to include:

    1. Project Materials

    This includes all the essential items needed for the craft. For example, if you're creating an artwork kit, you might include a canvas, paint, paintbrushes, and a palette.

    2. Instructions

    Clear, step-by-step instructions are crucial. Ensure that your instructions are easy to follow, with diagrams or photos where necessary. Or this could be a QR code that is included that takes your customer to a video with instructions.

    3. Tools

    Any specific tools required for the project should be included. If the tools are reusable, they add extra value to the kit.

    4. Finishing Touches

    Consider adding a few extras, like a small sample of varnish for a painting kit or a frame for the finished artwork. These finishing touches can make your kit stand out.

    5. Packaging

    Attractive and practical packaging can enhance the overall experience. Ensure your packaging is sturdy enough to protect the contents during shipping and appealing enough to attract buyers.

      Examples of DIY Craft Kits

      To get your creative juices flowing, here are a few ideas for DIY craft kits:

      • Painting Kits: Include a pre-drawn canvas, a set of paints, brushes, and detailed instructions on how to complete the artwork.
      • Jewellery Making Kits: Provide beads, wires, clasps, and pliers, along with a guide on creating different types of jewellery pieces.
      • Knitting or Crochet Kits: Include yarn, needles or hooks, and patterns for simple projects like scarves or beanies.
      • Pottery Kits: Offer clay, basic tools, and instructions for creating small pottery items. Include information on how to finish and glaze the pieces.
      • Candle Making Kits: Provide wax, wicks, molds, and fragrance oils, along with a guide on melting and pouring candles.

      Great Images are a MUST

      DIY kits are no different to your creations when it comes to selling, you need GREAT IMAGES! These are the doorways to connect customers with your products.

      Here are a few tips to ensure your photos stand out:

      The Main Image

      Get your creative hat on to show in the picture that your product is a kit without adding big text on top. Show the kit laid out in a stylish way.

      Style the main image of your Craft Kits for Adults

      Show the Finished Product

      Include high-quality images of the finished project to give customers a clear idea of what they can create.

      Detail Shots

      Provide close-up shots of the materials included in the kit. This helps customers see the quality and variety of items.

      Step-by-Step Visuals

      Consider including photos that show the step-by-step process of the craft. This can help reassure customers that they can successfully complete the project.

      Lifestyle Images

      Show your craft kit in use. Images of people enjoying the process can be very appealing and relatable to potential buyers.
