3 Top After Effects Templates for DIY and Craft Videos

If you're happiest when up-scaling furniture, tiling a bathroom, or making something brilliant out of nothing, then you probably enjoy sharing those talents and helping other people to do what you do! Making a 'how to,' craft or DIY video is the perfect way to share your skills, so we've put together some of our favourite templates to help you do it with style.

Top 3 Video Templates for DIY and Craft Businesses

The templates are available through Envato Elements (subscription) and Envato Market (pay as you go).

1. DIY Creative Logo | Invention Technology Show

This After Effects template is fun and geeky! A hand pulls a string to activate gears, gadgets and other technical bobbins, to reveal your logo in style. This would be perfect for a YouTube channel dedicated to craft or DIY content.

2. How To - Step by Step Guide

If you make demonstration or ‘how to’ videos, you’ll love this opener template. It lets you create a handy step-by-step guide, with a simple and imaginative design. You don’t need any plugins to use this and the expressions are universal.

3. DIY TV Show - Smooth & Handcrafted

This is a great package if you’re just starting out, or maybe fancy a change to your usual look. The After Effects project includes two openers, lower thirds, transitions and much more. You also get some useful stock video included, like drilling a hole and using a sealant gun.

Extra, Extra...

It was so hard to choose just three cool templates that we thought we'd include a couple of others that you might find useful for your DIY video project.

DIY Tools Icons and Elements

This is a really useful set of icons for After Effects. They're animated and in the style of an outline, so they're clean and will fit most DIY ventures.

DIY Cardboard Paper Robot

This was too cute not to share. This little cardboard robot stock footage would be a great addition to any craft channel intro or outro.
