Easy Art And Craft Ideas For Kids

Additional Craft Information:

As members of amiable society, we often feel bound to provide gifts for our nearest and dearest. To discount a single person when gift giving would be a cardinal sin, let alone not provide the most courteous gift possible.

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.

Impersonal gifts like candles and bath salts would be affronting. People want proof that a gift took more consideration than the time it takes to pay at the store.

Is that really too much to ask? There's no trouble with desiring to be thought about by somebody you care about.

Only those with the super power of a considerate gift dispenser can think of a new thoughtful gift for every person on their list. And on top of that, gifting holidays occur multiple times a year. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, and all the other society made holidays exist purely to distress the gift contributor.

Here's a solution for you. Why not make the same old gift seem like a new revelation each time?

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's within the realm of promise. Just head on down to the nearest wholesale fabric suppliers, pick out a design, and get inventive. You could quickly generate a quilt or sweater. A unique and thoughtful gift is in your grasp. And the best part is you can change the model of the fabric by the yard each time for a completely unfamiliar gift.

So, you say you aren't inventive enough to sew together a quilt? Or you don't know how? Come on! Resources to learn how to turn fabric by the yard into a gift are available everywhere.

Local community colleges or recreation centers usually have adult education courses in which you can learn new skills, such as sewing or learning to make a quilt. The Internet has a hoard of resources you can use. There are blogs and how-to websites that are dedicated to turning people who believe they have no inventive powers into fully-fledged master artists. Youtube and other video websites are filled with how-to guides for those of us who have trouble learning without visual instruction. You'll be making masterpieces in no time at all!

Once you've decided which type of gift you want to make, whether it's a quilt, sweater, or any other creation you've come up with, you can design each gift to fit a different person. Usually wholesale fabric suppliers have hundreds to thousands of different types of textile designs. A Sleeping Beauty design can be selected for your princess-wannabe niece. That coworker who has a lot of patterned shirts will love the striped design you made.

The same quilt, sweater, or pencil cozy can be gifted every holiday, every year. Buy a different fabric by the yard, and you'll have a totally different gift. Your loved ones will thank 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.
