There are 5 essential tools I highly recommend to have on hand before starting any DIY craft project.

First tool you will need is:

Hot Glue Gun


Hot glue guns are a must have item if you're starting your crafting DIY journey. There are high temp and low temp glue guns. Hot glue is the fastest adhesive to use for a craft project and works perfectly to keeping a project intact. 


Second must have tool:

Sharp Sheared Scissors

There is nothing more annoying then beginning a project and realizing the scissors you have are old, dull, not good quality. Fiskas makes amazing, hard core scissors for all your crafting needs! 

Third Tool for the DIY crafter:


Sewing Kit
