Cutting tools: Scissors, cutters, trimmers, and knives are some of the basic tools you must have in your toolbox. When working on DIY projects, sometimes it’s not enough to have just one pair of scissors, especially when working with materials other than paper. Using high-quality cutting tools will come in handy for different projects and everyday tasks.

Adhesives: Tapes, all-purpose glue, wood glue, sealer, and a glue gun should be in your kit. Tapes and all-purpose glue are good for kiddie crafts. But for those who want to work on bigger projects, stronger adhesives are required. And when assembling small parts, a glue gun might keep things in place.

Brushes: For art enthusiasts like Vijaya Prakash Boggala, having paintbrushes of different sizes is a good investment for those who dabble in arts and crafts. Aside from painting, having different applicators can be useful in assembling and finishing projects.

Writing and coloring tools: Investing in good pencils, pens, markers, and coloring materials is a must. Instead of grabbing what’s available, it’s always better to have quality materials even when working on projects with little kids.

A successful DIY project depends on the skills of the crafter. Having reliable materials will make working easier and less time-consuming.
