Top 100 DIY Trends in 2020

From Virtual Candle Making Classes to Stunning Custom Crayons

— January 23, 2021 — Art & Design
These 2020 DIY trends range from virtual candle making classes to stunning custom crayons.

Standouts include Stone Candle Bar's Virtual Candle Making Workshop + Kit series -- a collaboration with Fever that was hosted this past May. The virtual workshop required participants to purchase a Stone Candle Bar kit in advance of the event, gaining them access to a step-by-stop tutorial on creating their unique finished product.

Catos Clubhouse is another notable example. The mom-lead company specializes in non-toxic custom crayons that range from numbers and letters to shapes that are designed to encourage creativity among young children. The crayons are available in marble, solid, bow, and camo colorways and are made to order, making them a great gift idea this upcoming holiday.

These 2020 DIY trends speak to growing consumer desires for maker culture products that are either handcrafted or that can be made in the comfort of one's home -- a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing safety measures.
