Let’s talk about Snapchat. Yes, there is more to it than stories about your friend’s trek from bar to bar or super-detailed paint drawings — though we’re huge fans of those! Get more advice on Snapchat basics and the best ways to use it.
Through Snapchat Discover, you can get snippets of news and noteworthy video from brands you love, like Food Network and CNN. But it’s also a place where you can see another (PG) side of DIY stars, designers and HGTV stars: Think off-the-cuff, behind-the-scenes snippets, beautiful homes and amazing projects that you’ll want to stare at for way more than 10 seconds.
We’ve gathered 6 of our favorite design and DIY Snappers. Read on to see how to add them and why we love them.
