It’s now easier than ever to spark your creativity through arts and crafts. You can take online classes on nearly any subject and wade through countless inspiring blogs. But if you’re looking for a tactile way to learn and enjoy a new skill, try a DIY kit. They come in nearly every craft and are convenient—many all-inclusive packs have everything you need to get started. Just grab basic supplies like scissors and you’ll be on the path to making something great.

DIY kits allow you to “test drive” an art or craft before you fully commit to it, making it a safe way to try something out of your comfort zone. If you’re curious about crafting your own paper flowers, for instance, the Van Gogh Irises kit is one to explore. Its creator Sarah Yakawonis modeled the flowers after the iconic painter’s artwork. When you’re done, you’ll have a set of Irises to decorate your home. Afterward,  you can evaluate what you thought of crafting your own florals and even build on your skills with books like Tiffany Turner’s The Fine Art of Paper Flowers.

We’ve taken the guesswork out of finding a DIY kit. Check out our recommendations below.
