The amounts and types of bead jewelry that you can produce will all depend on how much creativity you have inside of you.

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.

People have learned this technique by watching others make their own bracelets and necklaces. This is probably the most common method for learning this technique because if the person who is learning has a question, they can simply ask the experienced person and they may be able to tell them what they need. The majority of people have no problems learning this technique because it is very easy and most of the time anyone with a good pulse can introduce the beads were they go.

If you are not interested in learning beading because you do not know anybody who is very good at this craft, you always have the option of searching for some information on the internet. There you will find thousands of articles that describe this technique and many of them even have videos or pictures which will make learning much easier. The people who have learned to make their own bead jewelry by reading internet articles have done exceptionally well because they can do it at their own pace, and they do not need any other person to tell them how to do things. Many people like to learn things on their own, and now thanks to the internet, they can do it without a problem.

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).

Another easy way of learning this jewelry-making technique is by reading some books on the subject. There are many writers who have been able to publish their own books on this jewelry-making technique, and they are very good. Most of these books have wide explanations as to which are the best way to create bead bracelets, necklaces and rings. Some of these books even include instructions for making your own bead earrings and even your own bead t-shirts. There is really a lot of information out there about this technique and many actually consider it art.

If you feel that all of the bead products that are manufactured are not as good as the ones that you could create, then learning the art of beading is probably your best way to go. Once you have learned this technique you will not have to buy bead products from anyone and you might even convert these craft into a very lucrative business idea. Most people do not know how much money the bead companies make every year and this is why they are still not participating in this very lucrative business. If you learn how to make your own bead products you can certainly make some very nice objects, which most of your friends will want to wear.

As you can see, it is not very hard to learn the art of beading and it has many advantages once you have learned how to do it. There is no shame in trying it, because this is a very popular way of using your spare time in something productive.

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.
