Woodwork is a hobby that many will be able to find pleasure in and it is basically a hobby that is suitable for everyone. It does not mean that anyone can create their own furniture, but everyone can find something to make. The possibilities are many and there is much you can make without expensive equipment and experience. The main advantage of woodworking as a hobby is flexibility. Both in terms of price levels, ambition, work, time, and more, this is a versatile hobby. Furthermore, it is a hobby that allows you to involve your children. With a little practice, you could actually save a good deal of money on this hobby, not least by making gifts. Note that woodworking is a hobby where you can both make practical things, and also express yourself artistically.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Woodwork is a hobby with endless possibilities, but in a startup phase, it is not necessary to aim too high. Find a relatively simple project so that you can learn the basics. For your first project I recommend that you use drawings and instructions from book or from the internet. A tip is to take advantage of the benefits of the rectangle and square. Especially for beginners it will make woodworking easier, which of course is due to the mathematical assumptions. It is then natural to think of a storage box or the like. But a cabinet has the same shape and a chest of drawers is really just a large rectangle with smaller rectangles that can be pulled in and out.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

There are countless opportunities for those who want a new hobby and before you choose it may be wise to consider your options. There are several things that determine what will be the best hobby for you. First and foremost is of course important to find a hobby that you would like to pursue. However, there are many factors that limit the ability to choose a hobby. Travelling around the world is something most people would like, but both the time and cost limits this possibility.

Having extra time has almost become luxuries in today's society. For many, a busy life including work and family puts major limitations on opportunities to pursue a hobby. We may say that the valuable and limited time you invest in a hobby, means that you should carefully consider the alternatives. Also, the cost should be considered. How much will you be able to spend on a hobby? How much money you want to spend on this? Even if, for example, you can afford to start with golf, you should be sure that this is what you truly want before you invest much money in equipment and membership.

The most important thing is that you choose a hobby you have passion for. A hobby is first and foremost something you should enjoy, not something you need to be good at. Make a small list of hobbies that you find interesting. Consider then how suitable these hobbies are for you? Cost, time and other factors should be considered. If you still have problems with selecting a hobby, some research may help you. Internet can be used to find information about almost anything, including hobbies. The very best will be to talk to someone doing the hobbies you consider.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
