Here’s the Box Breakdown
first look in the crafty crates
Our first glimpse inside the Crafty Crates Subscription Box
what's in the crafty crate subscription
Everything that we received in our Crafty Crate Box. We received everything we needed to complete a dreamcatcher! What a fun activity!

So what is all this stuff?

Each Crafty Crate includes detailed instructions on how to complete the project. There’s also some info about the origination of the dreamcatcher
Each item that was included is listed as well as the anything you can add additionally.
The instructions are detailed and include images
And the back features a picture of a completed dream catcher

Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread

This is what we’ll be using to complete the “net” of the dreamcatcher. The dreamcatcher we’ll be making will be a bluish brown in color scheme
Assorted Metal Craft Hoops
We received 3 craft hoops in total in varying sizes. There was a 6, a 7 and an 8 inch hoop included. These will serve as the circular part of the dreamcatcher
Assorted Beads
This bag had so many beads it was crazy! There’s beads of all shapes, sizes and colors all of which you’ll be using to adorn your dreamcatcher!

Assorted Feathers
The final item(s) that we received were this bunch of assorted feathers which will hang from our dreamcatcher! These came in a lot of pretty colors like brown and blue and white!

Okay so now what?

We are still in the process of making our dreamcatcher but thought we’d show you where we are right now. If you are interested – as always we’ll share updates on our IG
Our first step was to tape down our string and wind it around the entire hoop
Here’s our entire hoop wound with thread. Next we’ll begin the net!!! 

So in summary

We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Crafty Crates Box is a great alternative for busy people who just don’t have the time to find crafts to do and then source each of the products. We love that everything is included and that there’s an attention to the aesthetic of the completed project. The presentation is good, everything arrives perfectly. The quality is great – all the materials were a nice quality and we liked the instructions. And curation is awesome – we love that they chose a dreamcatcher because honestly, who wouldn’t want one? We also love that the only thing we needed to provide was a few pieces of tape and scissors! Crafty Crates is a lot of fun!
