Hey there, hive! Mrs. Penguin already hooked you guys up with a wedding registry list for slobs (or those of us living with slobs). Today I wanted to share this registry guide for couples who are obsessed with DIY, whether it’s transforming an old house into a beautiful modern home, or sitting on your couch and binge-watching Orange Is the New Black while you whip up your latest craft creation.
Mr. Mouse and I are what you might call “low intermediate” level DIYers. He can operate a power saw, and I can paint and stain furniture like no one’s business. No matter your level of DIY aptitude, if you love making stuff this is the registry list for you.
FYI: You can create your own universal registry on Amazon. You’re just a couple clicks away from starting the custom registry of your dreams—pull from everything Amazon has to offer, plus pick your must-haves from your favorite online retailers, like West Elm & Target.
Pssst…if you’re in the market for an engagement ring or a loose diamond, Amazon’s Deal of the Day (today ONLY!) features up to 75% off selected jewelry.
Here ya go, DIY kings & queens: 21 things DIY couples should register for.
Every DIY couple needs a Dremel. This little powerhouse can cut, carve, clean, polish, sand…it will be your most used power tool for every home project, from redoing the tile in your bathroom to restoring that amazing mid century thrift store coffee table. Plus, it’s cordless!

Upgrade your cheapie hot glue gun for this “tool not toy” version from 3M. Less drip, faster heat-up, and a stable seat make this hot melt applicator the last glue gun you’ll ever own.
Go ahead and do yourself a favor and register for this portable workbench. It’s heavy duty enough for your toughest projects, and then folds up nice & neat when you’re done. This bench is perfect to use in a garage that does double duty as car hole + workshop.
You know what they say: The couple who makes ice cream together, stays together…or something like that. Ice cream is just one of those things that tastes better when you make it yourself, and it couldn’t be easier with this fully automatic VonShef ice cream maker.
This beer making kit comes with everything you need to start brewing your own beer at home. Choose from seven different styles of beer, including Everyday IPA, Chestnut Brown Ale, and Chocolate Maple Porter (yum!). Guaranteed that someone will be super excited to purchase this off your registry!
If you’re the type who likes to give handmade gifts, this DIY bath bomb kit is right up your alley. Or, you can just keep these delicious-smelling cupcake shaped bath treats all for yourself.

If you haven’t invested in one of these bad boys yet, your wedding is the perfect time. Think about how you can make all the things: curtains, skirts, gifts for your friends who’re having babies. You can finally tackle all the projects on that Pinterest “Sewing” board you created. This sewing machine comes with a bundle pack of 10 bobbins and size 14 needles, and it’s the perfect starter for a beginning sewer.
Corral all your DIY tools in this slick rolling tool chest. The vertical storage means it won’t take up much space, and the drawers can be labeled for easy access to your most used tools.
Do I even have to explain why DIYers should register for these mason jars? They’re good for canning; bath salts, scrubs, & lotions; cookie mason jar favors; and of course, drinking that delicious homemade beer you brewed.
Protect your surfaces with a self-healing cutting mat. This is the must-have companion to your rotary cutter or X-Acto knife, and makes your DIY paper projects a breeze.
Is this not the prettiest rotary cutter you’ve ever seen? You’ll make up excuses to use this if it’s in your DIY craft tool box. Seriously, I’m thinking about how fancy this would feel, slicing up my latest stationery project while sipping a glass of bubbly on the couch. #craftgoals
