Today lots of people are discovering what a fun and satisfying craft beading truly is. Are you one that knows the joy? If you are where do you go shop for supplies? Most people end up buying from local bead shops.

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.

There is a much easier way to go about getting your beads. That way is to buy online. This way has more advantages than going to a bead shop. There are just a few essential steps to ensure that you have a triumphant experience and help you to decrease your risks of buying beads online.

One of the perks of buying online is all the time that you will save, which too many people is very important. Besides time, you will save on gas, especially if you have a bead shop where you live and have to drive a long way to even get to one. You will save your feet from having to hurt from walking around bead shop after bead shop, standing and looking at the beads. When buying beads online have a vast selection to pick from.

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).

The biggest obstacles you will run into trying to through all the bead sites and finding the one you like best. You can find any design and color that you could ever want in a bead, all the while sitting in front of your computer.

An excellent idea is to take a look at your local bead shop so you will have an idea of what beads you need and maybe want in the future and get their names. Knowing the names of the beads you want will make finding them online a little more easily. Plus with buying them online, you could find them at a much lower price range that you could at a bead shop.

With purchasing beads online, you are mostly dealing with the wholesalers. Most wholesalers will charge a price based on bulk. Just keep in mind that like most things, cheaper does not always mean better. Find out the grade of the beads before you buy. Bead grades go from A to D. Grade A as the highest and Grade D as the lowest.

By buying beads online you only have a picture to go by. To get an idea of the beads size be sure to read the description, then use a ruler or some other measuring tool to get an idea on the size. You really don't want to buy the bead and find out that it is the wrong size when you get the bead.

If you are not positive go have a look at that size of bead at a bead shop. Take the time to get all the information you need, then you will have no difficulty when you go buy beads online.

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.
