Who Are The Best DIYers on YouTube?

It’s definitely not us, but Ali and I are back with this week’s installment of awesome DIY projects and some ridiculousness. If you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if there was a World Cup of Craft (c’mon, who hasn’t?!?) then you won’t want to miss the end of this one. Full show notes here.

But I am on the hunt to find all of the must-watch, must-follow YouTube DIYers – do you know of any? While I’m a total blogoholic, I’ve never really gotten into subscribing to YouTube channels and I’m not sure why. I know there are some amazing vloggers (are we still saying that?) and I want to find more! Here are some that I do know and enjoy –

And here are some other ones I have discovered more recently – SimpleDIYsAnneorshine, AndreasChoice, LaurDIY, Debi’s Design Diary, Karen Kavett and DazzleDIY.

Please share your awesome DIY YouTubers (or Vimeo-ers, if that’s a thing) with me, I want to follow them!

PS – At Whimseybox we’re posting our videos on Vimeo and YouTube now, so follow along wherever you prefer!

The Whimseybox DIY + Craft Trend Report

Today we published the first Whimseybox DIY and Craft Trend Report. It’s a piece we’re excited to share and build upon in the coming quarters and years. We feel like we’ve got front row seats to the incredible diy/maker movement and have been looking for a way to start sharing more back with the community. Here’s what I said in the introduction:

At Whimseybox we eat, sleep and breathe DIY and craft, and so does our community. This, our first quarterly trend report, was created by analyzing the content posted, shared and consumed on We track every search, share, click and comment in our efforts to build the best place for people to find DIY inspiration and buy craft supplies online. Read on for a glimpse into what’s in, what’s out and what’s next.

I hope you enjoy it!
