One of my most frequently asked questions is, “what are you favorite crafting supplies?” And although every crafter is different, I’m telling you what I love to personally have on hand tucked away in my craft stash!!! I listed out my TOP 10 crafting faves… see the whole list here!
More and more of us are not traveling as much as we used to. Some of us like to limit our time away from home due to Covid 19. Shopping Amazon is easy and it ships fast. Why not let your fingers do your walking? Stay at Home is the new NORM.
I found when all the stores shut down that Amazon had product when the stores could not get any. Paint colors were especially limited.
THE BELOW AFFILIATE LINKS ARE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE and I do make a small monetary amount if you click and buy, but please don’t feel it is necessary.
Here are a few gifts I would love to receive as a crafter.
I love my Bowdabra. It is not necessary to make bows but it does make my life easier.
#2. Buffalo Plaid Ribbon
Because you can never have enough Buffalo Plaid. This ribbon was impossible to find when the pandemic hit. The stores around here did not have any for a long time. So I had to order from Amazon. Thank goodness for Amazon! And I am still using this roll. Below are links for 1.5 inch and 2.5 inch.
#3. Cordless Glue Gun
I like this one because of the charging dock. It always has a home to be placed in.
If I use a corded glue gun I like the ones that use the mini glue sticks. I find the larger ones tend to put out too much glue for my taste. But it is probably my heavy trigger finger. Stay safe with these things!! Don’t be like me and touch the glue before it cools.
#4. Chalkboard Paint
Every chalking crafter needs Chalkboard paint.
#5. Chalkboard Tags
These also come in handy for chalking surfaces. I am an Independent Designer for Chalk Couture and I like these to design on.
#6. Sharpie Oil Based Markers
Many crafts can be embellished with these marking pens. It’s hard to paint a precise line. Use a pen instead!
#7. Assorted Foam Brushes
You can buy these anywhere, but why not let your fingers do your shopping instead?
#8. Acrylic Paint
This is a great set to buy for your crafter. It has many great colors. I like Deco Art because the pigment is more opaque. You do not have to put down as many coats.
#9. Storage Totes
I use these totes FOR EVERYTHING! When we go to flea markets and back and forth to our market booth I use these to carry everything in. Larger totes get too heavy for me to carry. I do use some larger totes but having these really helps my back from getting injured. I also use these to store my holiday ribbons, holiday decor, stencils and transfers, scrapbook paper, etc. I don’t keep them under my bed but I do keep them stacked and labeled in my garage closet. They are so, so convenient.
#10. Tool Kit —in Pink of course
I have one similar to this one and I keep it in my Tahoe. We have rent houses and we put up curtains and blinds in them. So I have just got in the habit of leaving this in my vehicle which is everywhere I am and I use it on the road and at home. Because each tool is pink, it is easy to see that it belongs to ME and NOT my husband. LOL.
Well, that’s my TOP 10 CRAFTING SUPPLY LIST for the DIY Crafter. (check back, it could change and be updated)
