/ Feb 15, 2015

DIY YouTube Channels 2-15-15

YouTube is a great venue to show off crafts. DIY projects involve steps often too complex to write down but not so difficult you have to see it done in person. Thus, the YouTube tutorial lets viewers in on the creation of crafts ranging from donut pillows (see the title image) to fake pearl earrings.

The following creators (all women) have honed their particular crafts and know how to teach. Some focus on the straightfoward tutorial, while others go the way of beauty/style creators on YouTube, adding hauls and “My Routine” videos the DIY mix. If you’re getting stir crazy while waiting out the cold this winter, the following channels might help find a new project for you to focus on.
