8 DIY Sites to Follow on Twitter

If your weapon of choice is a glue gun, we recommend following these 8 craftastic accounts!

@craft – Craft ‘n’ tweet to your heart’s content by following Craft zine, which tweets daily “How-To” videos and posts, along with some of the best new projects from other crafting blogs and sites. Craft’s tweet style:

@psimadethis– High fashion and DIY get equal lovin’ from P.S. I Made This‘ Erica Domesek, who tweets about dry erase paint and the Met Ball with the same enthusiasm. Follow @psimadethis for updates on Erica’s DIY projects, whirlwind social life, and inspirations. Erica’s tweet style:

 

@burdastyle – This online sewing community and ModLife fave offers project ideas, tutorials, message boards, and a library of free or low-priced patterns in both regular and plus sizes. For recent Burda converts and avid needle-wielders, this Twitter account is a must-follow. Burda’s tweet style:

@make_tips– Like its username suggests, MAKE Magazine’s Twitter is full of 140-character tips to help you tweak, organize, and make sense of the jumble of technology in your life. Newsweek calls MAKE “The Martha Stewart for Geeks,” but we think their tips are too good to leave to just the geeks. MAKE’s tweet style:

@threadbanger– Want to make Lady Gaga’s bra from the prison scene in “Telephone”, or a retro cake stand? There’s a site for that. ThreadBanger posts and tweets about technique, tutorials, and cool works on everything from fashion to home décor. ThreadBanger’s tweet style:

@ReadyMadeTweets– For the super hands-on types. Like its print and web counterparts, ReadyMade‘s Twitter is a good place for quick tips, and project ideas in the realms of DIY, design, home, and food. ReadyMade’s tweet style:

@designsponge– You’d be hard pressed to find a prettier design site than Grace Bonney’s Design*Sponge, which has a great DIY project section and an archive of before-and-after design makeovers that never fail to make us murmur, “I want to go to there.” Design*Sponge’s tweet style:

@etsy– Whether you’re an Etsy seller or buyer, you’ll want to follow the site on Twitter for the latest info on Etsy meet-and-greets, handmade city guides to fun places like Berlin, and cool craft projects and events. Etsy’s tweet style:
