Hello friends! Last evening while browsing the aisles of Michaels Arts and Crafts, I picked up their new Make Market Diamond Art Kit! I’m excited to start working on this, but first lets unbox it together.

A Diamond Art Kit is a fun and relaxing hobby for all ages. A few years ago, I did a Paint by Numbers Kit with my daughter, and we loved it! Since the kits come with everything you need, all you need to do is make time to create.

How to choose the right Diamond Art Kit

When choosing a Diamond Art Kit, there are a few things to consider.

  • Size of the canvas Larger canvases will take longer to complete. Start with something small like these Diamond Bookmarks or Diamond Stickers to see if you like this hobby. Watch this video for more ideas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB5IIILhc2A
  • Choose a design you LOVE: I love flowers and butterflies, so this design fills me with joy. I tried doing a landscape once, and it was slow slow progress. Choose a design that you love (not just like!) as you will be spending a lot of time with this canvas. You might loose interest quickly if the design has colors that don’t inspire you.
  • Level of detail in the design With more intricate designs, there will be more rhinestone colors and it will take longer to complete, but can be more satisfying to finish.
  • Quality of the materials included in the kit, such as the rhinestones and the adhesive. A good quality kit will not have your stones falling off.
  • Tools: Finally, look for a kit that includes all the necessary tools, such as a tray for sorting the rhinestones and a pen for placing them on the canvas.

Diamond art is a great hobby for people of all ages and skill levels. Not only is it a fun and relaxing way to spend your free time, but it also has several benefits for your mental health. Diamond art can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and concentration, and boost creativity and self-esteem. Plus, the finished product is a beautiful work of art that you can display in your home or give as a gift to someone special.
