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.

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).

Chinese people think that people born in the year of the tiger have their unique characteristics. They are sensitive, emotional and capable of great love. Besides, they are very social and enjoy having many friends, some of whom have been with them for years whereas others they pick up along the way. Their desire for anything new keeps them active and alert. They trust their instincts and act on impulse. When they fall in love, it is always genuine but often doesn't last long. They are quick to abandon what doesn't work for them and forge onward to seek new and better times. Their aggressiveness is their strength, and their sense of self drives their determination. The tiger people are courageous and are deep thinkers who are true friends, they are unpredictable and listen intently to advice but then do as they please regardless of what was said. They have a tendency to get carried away and be stubborn about what they think is right; often seen as a “Hothead” or rebel. Their sign shows them would be excellent.

Maybe in some ways, people will fear them when talk about tiger because it looks ferocious, while there is still respect feeling on them because it is the king of animals. They have their own characters and they are very meaningful for Chinese people, such as their lucky symbol mean and ward off evil ability and the power symbol…all make this animal sign popular among people.

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.
