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.


RC or radio controlled cars can range in price from less than fifty dollars to thousands of dollars. If you are planning to buy your first RC car, you may be fazed by the difference in price of RC cars, not to mention the huge variety of models that are available. If you are planning to buy your first RC car, then getting to know some of the basics that determine the price and performance of remote controlled cars will help in making your decision easier.

Some of the main things that you need to know about radio controlled cars before you select and buy one are:

1. The Grade: The price of the same model of a radio controlled car can greatly vary based upon whether it falls into the toy or the hobby grade. The hobby grade of cars includes radio controlled machines that are built for the RC enthusiast, and thus come with the best features, functions, durability, speed and scaling. On the other hand, toy grade machines are just that—toys that are built for kids, but even these might offer quality and a host of features based on their price. If you are an adult venturing into radio controlled racing, then you might want to invest in a hobby grade car or a high end toy grade car to get started and in order to perfect your driving skills.

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).

2. The Fuel: Radio controlled cars today can run on different energy sources, ranging from batteries to petroleum. The latest of these are the gas powered cars. These cars are generally built to a larger scale than other types of radio controlled cars and run just like normal automobiles, producing fumes and noise in the bargain. Their engines are petrol driven and while their tanks can carry fuels for long distances, they are slower to accelerate than RC cars that run on other fuel sources.

The oldest type of RC cars is the one that runs on batteries. These RC automobiles rely on rechargeable batteries for power. Most racing enthusiasts keep spare batteries for races so that they can replace a car's exhausted batteries mid race. The advantage of battery run radio controlled cars is that they are the cleanest and the easiest to control. Being light weight, they accelerate quickly without producing noxious fumes.

In between these two kinds lies the racing enthusiast's favorite—the nitro car. Running on a combination of nitro-methane and lubricating oil, these cars can accelerate fast and achieve higher speeds than both gas and battery powered cars. However, because of the fuel used, they tend to produce both noise and exhaust, which is great if you are racing outdoors, but may prove painful if you are running your car in the drawing room even for a small period of time.

3. The Terrain: Radio controlled cars can be either off road or on road. On road models have racing tires and are built for high speeds for on road racing. On the other hand, off road RC cars generally come in the form of SUVs, trucks or truggies and have broader tires that provide a good grip over rough terrain. These are always slower and more rugged than on road RC car models. Both types come with all three energy options.

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.
