15 DIY Kits You Won't Believe You Can Make Yourself
From make-it-yourself bar carts to holiday wreaths and decor, there's just something fun about a DIY project. You get your hands dirty and your creative juices flowing, plus you have an amazing product once you're finished. But you don't have to make furniture from scratch to be crafty, and these DIY kits are the perfect (and manageable) way to get creative without taking on a huge project. Whether you're giving these as a gift or keeping them for yourself, we found 15 of the coolest kits that are almost too good to be true. Let's get crafting!

We could literally eat sushi all day, every day. And the only thing that might be as fun as *eating* sushi is making it yourself. This kit will give you everything you need, including ingredients and a rolling mat, to DIY eight sushi rolls. It's the perfect date night or girls' night idea.
DIY Lip Gloss ($20)
As much as we love makeup, we're not huge fans of how many chemicals go into our favorite products. That's why we love this DIY natural lipgloss kit! You can get the same results without any of the nasty stuff that bigger brands use, plus it's even more fun to make yourself.

We're big fans of mac & cheese here at B+C. We love rainbow mac, fried mac, and even mac & cheese pizza, so you can bet we're all over a kit that lets you make the "World's Best" mac & cheese. If you want something more than the go-to Kraft stuff, step up your pasta game with this gourmet DIY kit.
Trendy candles can be super expensive, which is exactly why we love this make-it-yourself option. It uses natural wax and essential oils so that, in addition to saving a bit of money, you'll be breathing in all-natural ingredients as well.
