It can be best described as glue/sealant/varnish all wrapped into one. It sticks to just about anything. Crafters use Modge Podge for collages, scrapbooking and even interior decorating which includes decorating walls, floors and even furniture. It comes in many colors including glitter.

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.

Actually it is nothing new! It has been around since 1967 as crafters have entrusted their most treasured decoupage creations to them. Loved by crafters young and old. Best of all, it's waterbase for easy clean-up, and non-toxic, too–perfect for young crafters. In addition to the original matte and gloss formulas, it includes an assortment of specialty finishes for visual effects.

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).

It is perfect for Decoupage!! Who would believe cut-and-paste could be so fun, so easy, so very versatile? This glue-sealer-finish, makes it so! Virtually endless supplies of papers and fabric can be used to decorate just about any surface imaginable. Decoupage is perfect for decorating new craft purchases; upcycling/reviving everyday items around the home; personalizing gifts; and so much more. The art of decoupage is more than simply gluing paper to surfaces. However, it is as easy as that! It is about creating items for home decor and gift giving. Surfaces such as wood, terra cotta, metal, tin, glass, paper mache and fabric are all surfaces that can be decorated!

Where to buy Mod Podge? Many craft stores and local retail stores sell Mod Podge but my preference is to order off Amazon.com and I will tell you why? It is pretty quite simple. Amazon in most cases will give you free shipping for orders over $25 and many times, depending on the state you are in $0 sales tax. More importantly though, there are quite a few third party sellers on Amazon, whether that be small craft stores trying to move their inventory quicker. I have found prices to be 60% lower then what Amazon also sells the same item for. Some instances Amazon.com is lower and other instances the third party seller on Amazon.com is lower. Bottom line you need to compare the price with shipping to see which method is best for you.

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.
