Review: Sugru

17157423_10155043812785912_8639739388407831482_oRegular readers will know that we’re big fans of Sugru in the Todhunter household, so when I was offered one of their new “Create and Craft” packs of course I said yes. The Create and Craft pack is one of a new series of kits available now. You can also pick up “Organise Small Spaces” , “Hacks for Your Home” and more (click here for all the latest special editions and kits). Each kit contains everything you need to get started with Sugru and “hack” your home, garage or craft table. They would make great gifts for the diy enthusiast or crafter (or those hard to buy for uncles, brother in laws etc).

The Create and Craft pack contains a handy tin with four packs of Sugru and a couple of useful texturising tools. Best of all, there’s a booklet filled with creative ideas and suggestions for using this brilliant mouldable glue. Whether you need to add a comfort grip to a pair of scissors, make a stamp for a quick printed wrapping paper or fix almost anything, then you need a pack of Sugru in your life. It’s strong, flexible, grippy and reliable. We made a “running repair” to our favourite cafetiere three years ago and it’s still holding up to daily use. You can find dozens of craft and design ideas over on the Sugru website.  My current favourite is this personalised mug “how to”.

If you’ve not tried Sugru, look out for it in DIY stores, or sign up for the Sugru newsletter to get 10% off your first order. Do check out Sugru for yourself – and bookmark this handy zip fix tutorial – it’s been well road tested in this house and really works!

My top tip for more Sugru inspiration is to follow the team on Instagram for loads of  diy / upcycling tips and dozens of crafty ideas to make.

Thanks again Sugru x

This periwinkle started off in my neighbour's garden, but has slowly crept under the fence & made a home for itself. The wren loves to hide in it, darting out when she thinks I'm not watching. Not my favourite plant, but that vivid blue is most welcome on cold February days.
