Scissors are some of the most basic tools for any person who likes craft hobbies. Whether you are working with paper or fabric, a good pair of scissors will help you make the cuts that need to be made.
Accurate measurements matter for crafting as much as it does for DIY house projects. Many crafters will have rulers of different sizes to work on different projects. You might even want to consider getting a tape measure for some of your craft projects.
Hot Glue Gun
A hot glue gun is one of those craft tools that come up in project after project. It can be good for gluing a range of materials and it can be particularly useful for things like gluing upholstery or fixing things like magnets or suction cups to a craft project you are working on.
Your paint pens can be good for marking and coloring a wide range of surfaces. When other pens and markers won’t do, your paint pens will usually perform reliably regardless of the material.
Paints and Brushes
Every craft toolkit needs a good variety of paints and brushes. Make sure to get a wide assortment of colors and get brushes of different sizes and with different types of bristles.
Craft sticks are some of the most versatile craft supplies you can find. Paint them, glue things to them, use them to build things. With a little imagination and the right supplies, there is so much you can do with popsicle sticks.
Glitter and Ribbons
Glitter and ribbons are some of the most basic stuff for crafts. These simple craft supplies are perfect for adding the finishing touches to a wide range of craft projects.
More Possibilities With MAKERX Craft Tools
Beyond the basic tools and supplies any kit should have, you could consider a range of crafting tools to expand the possibilities. Many crafters will already have tools like a cordless drill in their kit, but if you want a versatile set of tools that can go anywhere, you need to check out the MAKERX line.
A good place to start for many crafters is the two-piece combo set with the rotary tool and wood/metal crafter. With the range of bits and attachments, the rotary tool can be good for things like cutting, sanding, polishing, and grinding. With the wood/metal crafter, you can burn designs into pieces of wood and it comes with a range of tips to help you achieve the best results.
The mini heat gun is another great option for craft enthusiasts. A heat gun can help with a wide range of craft projects and the MAKERX heat gun is one of the best. It heats up quickly and it is very easy to use. Along with that, the precision nozzle and micro-ergonomic design make it great for when you need to ensure accuracy and precision with the application of heat.
