The difficulty star rating on our miniature house kits measure how much time it would take to finish a product rather than how much experience you need. Keep in mind that our suggested time required to finish a project varies from person to person.
For our wool felting kits, the difficulty rating is somewhat related to your experience with wool felting. For beginners, it's recommended to start with 1-3 stars difficulty. However, it's still possible for a first-timer to create a stunning wool felt with 5 stars difficulty.
All raw materials are included in each kit. We have taken much effort to include as many tools as needed for your DIY creations, however some tools, such as rulers, are easily accessible household essentials. Also, due to shipping restrictions, we are unable to include certain items such as glue.
Please check the “Required Tools” section of each product to ensure you have all the necessary items for your DIY project.
Our DIY craft kits are not intended for children due to the need to use sharp tools and to handle very small parts and pieces. However, feel free to work on the kits together with your child; assign him/her simple tasks such as cutting paper or gluing the eyes onto a wool animal.
Please be advised that it is your sole responsibility to supervise your children at all times and that we are not responsible for any accidents.
