Whether you’re an experienced crafter with years of practice or you’ve only just joined the DIY gang, there are several materials every crafter needs that you’ll use in almost every easy craft project. Here’s a list of 6 to help get you started:
A decent hot glue gun is a must for any crafter and it’s worth getting one with dual temperatures. That way you can turn it up high when you need stronger glue or you’re working with wood and you can lower it when working with more delicate items. You’ll also be surprised at how affordable glue guns are.
If you’re planning to do some painting, a lovely paint brush set is invaluable. However, it’s also worth having a couple of old paint brushes to hand too, just in case you need to do something other than painting like apply glue.
Any crafter will know that there are a huge variety of different types of paper, all of which will come in handy at least once. The types of paper include: tissue paper, copy paper, wax paper, construction paper etc.
It’s never a bad idea to bring a touch of nature to your crafting table; next time you’re out and about, collect some pine cones, feathers, acorns, sticks and other natural materials.
Duct tape is great for crafters, especially when it’s patterned. You can use it to create all sorts of masterpieces from wall decals and other home décor, to fashion and accessories.
There’s no better way to add an element of colour to any of your crafting projects than with a good old fashioned sharpie. You can even get oil based sharpies to broaden your horizons further!
