5 DIY Influencers to Follow on Social Media

Whenever I think about DIY projects, I think of Pinterest Fails and how most of my crafts turn out. However, even with the failures, it’s difficult not to want to try the next DIY project that comes across my feed. It gives one a sense of accomplishment once a project is completed and who doesn’t like to tell others “I made that myself!”? Not only are DIY projects fun to tackle, they can also be an excellent way to get a brand out in front of others and look at it in a way they might not have before. This one was a difficult list to put together as there are so many great DIY influencers, but peruse below and hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for your next project.
