Nicki started DIY projects in 2012 where she found pure joy in turning some one else's trash into a new treasure. Now she takes on home reno projects big and small and shares it all!
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 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:
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:
There is so much more a good sewing kit is useful for than just a regular sewing project. Needles and thread are handy for SO many things so don't sleep on a good sewing kit!
Fourth DIY tool must have:
From reupholstering old furniture to getting crafty with canvases, having a good upholstery stapler will absolutely be needed for fun projects like those!
The Fifth DIY must have:
Cricut machines do SO many things from cutting stationary, heat press lettering, leather, stickers, there are so many possibilities and uses for this thing it is absolutely worth the investment!
I hope you found these tips useful and start that DIY journey off right!
