The gray waters of a stormy sea bash against the wooden hull of a ship. The sky above is black and thick with many clouds. Occasionally, the rumble of thunder and bright streaks of white lightning will cut across the sky. Ocean storms are renowned for starting up without warning and with great ferocity. The storm can die down at any moment, or become even more dangerous. This fickle nature is what downs so many ships. Rather optimistically, the ship moves continually forward. The crew mans the sails and the navigator pours over maps in order to chart a safer course.

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.

Amongst all the models available for sale, a tall ships model is a sound item that grabs the attention of any onlooker. Crafting the tall ships model is an arduous process that requires much devout attention. In such a big model ship, the details and mistakes of the modeler can be seen easily on the tall ships model. Great effort to keep the model mistake-free is taken on the modeler's part. Larger models such as the tall model ship are not often made, and are therefore rather rare. Empty spaces in larger houses are filled up well by tall model ships. This model is also extremely demanding of space. While some models may hog up time with cleaning demands, these models are otherwise very low maintenance. This item requires only a scarce few dustings every month or so.

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).


Many a tall ships model is crafted in equally sturdy and flexible wood. Those who make these items and those who collect them often prefer wood as the material of choice. Wood allows for these models to be built very tall, thanks to its even grain. Thanks to the very similar properties of plastic to wood, a tall ships model is often made from plastic as well. Plastic is also highly resistant to water.

The hue of the ship depends on what it's made of – white for plastic and golden grain for the wood versions. Though mold is a threat to many wood models, artisans rub them with different treatments to make them more resistant. When placed within a home space, the tall ships model does best as a display item in a larger part of the house. A room such as a play room or an office are often the best. When a model is a schooner type, the large, old fashioned masts may get in the way of many other activities in the room. Rooms that have little activity in them are considered optimal for this model.

For those who love anything to do with the ocean, the tall ships model makes a great, thoughtful gift. For friends, this ship is wonderful when acting as a house warming gift. As it takes up a lot of space, this ship model does well in empty or new houses. The tall ships model is a greatly versatile piece enjoyed by many.

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.
