Home Crafts To Make

Additional Craft Information:

Many women before and up to now are inclined in art. They are too imaginative and creative in terms of some productive activities like painting, drawing, sketching and other handcrafting work like wooden or marble handicrafts, silk painting, bags handicrafts and many more. There are too many handcrafts that women are engaging of. Knitting is one of the best examples of handcrafting. One of the main reasons why they are attached to this craft is because the blend of the vibrant colors of the yarn is really attractive to the eyes. They have these multi and solid color hand dyed and bright and light colors that fits your taste and solitary colors. It also creates a fashion statement, which is very important to most of them. It can describe your personality. However, for females who have not yet tried knitting clothes, scarves, hat, towels, bags or anything that can knit, there are a few things you have to learn.

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.

For the beginners, you must know the fundamentals of knitting. You have to start with the basics first, and be familiar with the terms used as well as the knitting needle conversion charts. You must study to know and be familiarized in the numerous knitting needle sizes and shapes depending on the knitting patterns for girls, boys, grannies or husband or whatever stuffs that they wish to achieve.

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).

Let's have an example for babies. Knitted hats, berets, and socks typically require circular knitting needles as what we can see from the knitting patterns for babies. Select the circular knitting needle that you are most comfortable with. There are a variety of needle manufacturers, as well, so the sizes of the needles may not necessarily be proportionate to that manufactured by another company.

Knitting needles have also been called knitting sticks, knitting pins, knitting wires, or simply wires or rods. Length and thickness of the needles vary depending on the type of yarn used and the type of fabric to be produced.

In choosing the kind of yarn to use, you have to make sure that you select the best quality. If you're new in knitting, it's probably better for not having a love affair with fiber yet. You don't want to spend $20 yarn for your first project. I won't say cheaper is better when it comes to yarn for your first project, because cheap yarns are often scratchy and uncomfortable to work with and to wear. Choosing yarn for your first project will depend on the project. You must first think the weight of yarn you've be needed. Then, determine how much yarn you need. You don't have to pick what was used in the pattern, but as a beginner that is often helpful because you can compare your finished project to the picture with the pattern more easily. Touch the different yarns that fit your needs. Pick something that looks good and feels good, something that will make you smile when you work with it and wear it.

As a beginner, you don't have to force yourself to create an excellent masterwork immediately. It takes time to achieve your goals and you have to be patient to reach your desires. So you should practice more until you master the art and love what you are doing. Someday, everyone will be amazed in your masterpiece and you'll be proud of yourself.

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.
