National DIY Day

A typical person can spend a lot to get other people to do their jobs for them, such as cutting their hair, fixing their computers and cars, mowing their lawns, or baking bread and cakes.

It is true, there are certain things people would do (and should)! Experts with the right knowledge and experience would be a better choice for people who need help, such as performing surgery or filing taxes. More people are recognizing that many people have become too dependent on others, and therefore, are too helpless to do things on their own.

While not everyone is familiar with the details of an engine’s construction, most people can change the oil or tire on their cars.

Although most people don’t have the skills to be Martha Stewart or Jamie Oliver, they can still make a birthday cake. It would be far better than the bland, store-bought cakes!

Why not learn something new to prepare for National DIY Day? !

The Craft Box Girls team created National DIY Day in recent years. It was first celebrated in 2016. Craft Box Girls’ mission is to recognize makers and inspire people of all income levels to make things for themselves without hiring a professional.

Craft Box Girls are able to make everything from fruity cocktails to wreaths, vases and pillowcases, and just a few simple knick-knacks. Their desire is to inspire and encourage others to make things on their own.

The history of DIY probably dates back to the beginning.

Italian archeologists discovered the remains of a temple-like structure that was built in Greece 6 centuries BC. It had detailed instructions for assembly and is now being called “ancient IKEA”. Similar to the IKEA instructions booklets that are so well-known, the coded symbols on the temple’s sections show how they fit together.

DIY actually has a fascinating past! The do-it yourself culture has fluctuated over the years. However, creative and inventive people continue to create and learn, whether it is out of necessity or simply because they love doing so.

Now it’s time for National DIY Day celebrations!

National DIY Day is a great opportunity to learn new skills and celebrate the day. Enjoy the day with these ideas, or create your own.

You can learn more DIY skills by watching tv. These shows are great for learning new skills and entertaining.

National DIY Day is the ideal time to hold a party or event that celebrates the joy and satisfaction of DIY. Make the office lunchroom a learning space for your coworkers or open the school’s art room for children to learn new skills. You can also make your garage a learning space for neighbors to learn how to decorate their homes.

There are many books available in libraries and bookstores that can help you do it yourself. A book can help you learn whether you need to put in a light fixture in your living room, or how to make stained glass art. You can even get a DIY book that will show you how to build a bookshelf to hold your DIY books.

The old saying “Give a man fish and he feeds him for a day; teach him to fish and he feeds his family for a life time” is well-known. So, ask your friend or family member to teach or modify a light bulb, or to cook.

It’s never a bad thing to be more independent! You will become more confident the more you learn, which has never been a bad thing!

Learning how to cook a meal instead of eating unhealthy frozen goop from the grocery is much easier than learning foreign languages so that you can rely on other people while traveling. But, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to participate in National DIY Day. It is the hardest step, but also the most important. Let this day be the day that you make a change in your life! To share your joy and inspire others, don’t forget to post all of your projects on social media.
