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.

It has been grown into several other kinds of items, for instance, home decor, bowls, plates, and different kinds of jewelry. If jewelry making is your obsession, you might desire to make fused glass pendants by utilizing your artistic capability.

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).

In order to create these fused glass earrings, makers first take a piece of glass, and slowly layer on it thin coverings of different metal oxides and quartz crystal as well. Manufacture needs a close chamber. The metal oxides are generally vaporized within this close chamber. The metal or quartz particles crystallize onto the surface of the glass, creating a very strong, crystalline structure. The width is tiny, allowing as many as twenty, thirty or even forty layers to gather on the piece of glass with no substantially altering its shape or size. The artist can merge diverse pieces that shine with diverse colors to form a spectacular bracelet. Some may want to use a round-shaped glass piece and laser in their own outline. A patient and exact designer can create a fine work of art, whose ornamental patterns and settings complement and highlight the good looks of the bead or shifting colors.

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.
