Darby Smart Mystery Box – December 2014
I’m excited to share a look at my Darby Smart Mystery Box – December 2014 with you! If you’re not familiar, Darby Smart has leading designers that launch simple DIY craft projects based on the latest fashion and home trends. They turn their projects into kits that include chic materials and simple instructions, and they send them to you. You can purchase a single kit, just supplies or subscribe to their monthly MYSTERY BOX!! Then you can create a unique design and show off your own style! If you love crafting and surprises then this box is for you!
With each kit you receive all the supplies for the project, plus a code on the back of a card so you can log into their web site and see the instructions.
Normally the Mystery Box is $19 a month but if you click though my link you can get a 3-month trial for just $38!! In addition, when you go through my link you will get an “additional” $10 off if you use code “howdydarby”…so that makes the 3-month trial just $28!! WOW…how can you pass that up, awesome!

Here is this month’s Mystery Box ~ Scarf!
So here is the “after” of our scarf!
As I said in the video, I have been getting these projects for my mother to do (and me when it comes with more than one item). She is 84 years old and has dementia so I like to find things for her to do that use her brain and motor skills and keep her interested in things.
She actually dislikes doing craft projects but I encourage her to do them anyway, lol! She didn’t want to do this project this time so I did it.
I didn’t like the yellow yarn it came with for the tassels so I used some sparkly lavender I had at home. It was easy to do BUT there was no way to put the tassels on and make it look good. One side looks great, but on the back of the tassel you can see the big knot the wool yarn is tied off with.
Result: It will be going to Goodwill, lol! The wool yarn of the main part of the scarf is very much like cotton so it is going to pull and fray and look a mess in no time. And, the tassels looked stupid on the back side. Like I said in the video…I have been MUCH more happy with the individual projects I have purchased off of DarbySmart than the “Mystery” box ones.
Check out my coordinating video for closeups of each product and to see my reactions as I open the December Darby Smart Mystery box:
