Julia Wycliff on HGTV Handmade   

Julia was approached by HGTV producers in 2012 when they planned on creating their DIY channel. Julia was one of a few talented creators they hoped to recruit for their first-ever YouTube channel. She agreed to collaborate with them and became a part of their team. She continued filming videos for her own channel instead of just shifting to HGTV to keep her audience. As a part of the HGTV crew, Julia filmed several DIY and craft videos which were easy to follow. Her speciality was DIY challenges, which challenged viewers to do homemade projects as fast as possible or with limited resources.   

Simple DIYs   

Julia created her YouTube channel in 2012 under the name SimpleDIYs. Her intention wasn’t to get famous but share her hobby with other people. She is a busy woman with a stable job, so she posts videos only once in a while. In 2012, friendship bracelets were a hit and could be bought in every corner. But even though children could buy them, they rather enjoyed making them themselves for their friends. Julia got caught up in the trend as well and started filming How To videos, where she showed different stitches for bracelets.

Even though Julia made friendship bracelets at the beginning of her channel, those videos became very popular. Some of those videos are over 10 years old but have remained the most popular on Julia’s channel for all these years. Her most popular video is DIY Chevron Friendship Bracelet, with over 14 million views. Besides friendship bracelets, Julia participated in fashion DIY crafts, for example, how to cut off jeans to make shorts. Since Pinterest remains one of the main platforms for DIY, Julia often inspired herself there. But since some hacks weren’t precisely functional, Julia took it upon herself to test those projects and share the results with her audience.
