The summer holidays are well under way, and it’s more than likely that you’re already bored and/or avoiding studying. You’re probably at home whiling away your days watching YouTube (and that’s perfectly fine by us!).

But instead of watching the make-up tutorial you’re never going to try out or the gaming video you’ve seen ten times, maybe it’s time to get all Blue Peter up in here and get crafty: So we’ve got the 5 best DIY YouTubers you need to watch.

(We The Unicorns will not be held responsible for super-glued together fingers, FYI)


1. LaurDIY

Lauren lives life in colour and her channel won’t fail to make you smile (and wish you lived in LA). If you’re after easy DIY tutorials to take up an afternoon then this is the channel for you. Think desk accessory, phone case and tye-dye DIYs and you’re there.



Annika Victoria

We think Australian Annika is seriously underrated and deserves more than her 56k subscribers. Annika’s “Make, Thrift and Mend” series feature simple guides on how to turn your clothes into show-stoppers and will have you whipping up your own shirts and shorts in no time.



Arlyne Sanjines 

If you love That Pinterest Life then you’ll love Arylene’s lifestyle channel which has a focus on home decor and getting the perfect blogger bedroom. Be prepared for fairy lights, candles and a “shabby chic” look.



Cathy Diep

Cathy hasn’t uploaded for a while but her channel is still all kinds of awesome. From DIY skateboard designs to beauty products and cooking videos, you’ll find yourself working through everyone of Cathy’s easy tutorials and being very pleased with the results.




First off, Eva is hilarious. If you’re a student, you’re going to love Eva’s channel. Over 3.5 million people have subscribed to her channel and keep coming back for craft videos and comedy sketches.
