Home Made Luxe is a monthly box that sends out everything you need to make a Pinterest worthy home decor craft for your house. They include step-by-step instructions and there is a link to a video that also walks you through them. Boxes start at $29.99 plus shipping and do go down with longer terms. I signed up for this one way back on Mother’s Day during the CrateJoy sale and scored it for 50% off. I am always looking for new craft boxes and ideas and these ones are a little different from what I’ve received before. I have a big stack of these to get through but all the delays on reviewing them are mone and have nothing to do with any shipping issues or problems getting boxes. They do provide shipping notices and often they send out surveys to see what craft you want to see in the next month’s box.
This sub ships in one of the largest boxes I’ve received. It is fully branded and no matter what is inside, it’s always the same box. Once I opened the lid I found everything packed carefully and looking neat.
This door hanger was included, I’m guessing because it was my first box. It is a cute way to let everyone know you’re busy and on the back is a code to get a discount.
The project for this month is a Marbled Hexagon Clock. I have to admit when I saw it I went, what the hell is this crazy ass thing from 1982? It is not really my style of decor but I will make it and then it can just live in my craft room, where I don’t have a clock. Marbling is not a craft technique I’ve ever done, so that is good. The instructions are good and there are plenty of pictures to detail those words too. They provide two different ideas that you can make depending on what you are needing or wanting in your house. There is also a Bonus Craft that you can make by providing a few items yourself. This time they provided some decorative duck tape (who spells it like that???) and show you how to make vases out of cans.
Here is the whole pile of provided items. There is a chalkboard clock face, a clock hands kit, white paint, paint brush, a feather, cardstock, paper plates, clock numbers, a sponge, chalk, and a battery. The roll near the bottom is the David Tutera Lace Duck Tape for the bonus craft.
For my first box from this subscription, I’m not that thrilled with what I received. I’m happy to try a new crafting technique but the finished product is not something I would ever make or buy if I saw it. I like that there is only water and a hot glue gun that I need to provide and that everything else is included. I have high hopes for the rest of my boxes from them and since it would be hard for it to get worse as a finished product it can only go up from here.
