Must Have Gift Guide for Crafters

Welcome back to the Sixth Year of our Festive Christmas Event where we team up with a bunch of talented blogging friends to bring you a plethora of creative ways to celebrate your holiday season.



We will be baking cookie recipes for you, sharing party games, making handmade gifts, doing ornament crafting, and sharing our Christmas movies family fun. There will be breakfast recipes and as always our decorated Christmas Trees which is always a fun tour of homes.

New this year is Gift Guides. We are right there with you shopping from home due to Covid 19 and we understand how hard that can be so we have been busy little Elves doing tons of research to create fabulous Gift Guides to help you with your holiday shopping.

You will find new ideas every Monday and Wednesday between Oct. 19th through Nov. 18th. Scroll all the way down to find all the ideas linked at the end.

For a lot of us right now during the pandemic, crafting is a way of helping to get through the feeling of being isolated or confined. It calms us, shifting our attention away from what's going on around us and is a great way to break up the monotony of sheltering in place. 
Picking up an old craft or delving into a new one is a positive way to get through this virus pandemic. That being said, if you know of anyone who wants to take up crafting or curious as to how to get started during these times, there are basic tools one must have when making a variety of projects. And this Must Have Gift Guide for Crafters is perfect to get you started!

Glue Gun (Cordless, Auto-Off Function-  A good glue gun is a must for any crafter, However, most standard glue guns aren’t equipped with a convenient safety feature like an auto-off setting or one that's battery operated! I know I've woken up worried during the middle of the night wondering if I turned off my glue gun. You can also do projects and not worry about being near an electrical outlet or using an extension cord.

                         
  • Self Healing Cutting Mat  Set  is a fabulous way to protect your table top from sharp blades, writing instruments and other art and craft tools.  Most crafters can't live without a cutting mat and accessories!        
                                        

Ruler Kit - Having good measuring tools is a necessity in crafts - there's always a need to measure something when creating projects.


Craft Scissors Set     Scissors are an essential tool for every crafter. And you will need different size scissors for multiple types of cuttings.                                




Craft Knife Set is a crafters best friend. A sharp and handy Xacto knife is priceless in that moment of need—it’s a must-have for any crafter or DIY’er. And having a variety of blades to use is a plus!  They come in real handy with different craft projects!


Paper Trimmer - perfect for those who love to do all things paper crafts! It's a really nice tool to have so you can make perfect cuts every time.

Pliers Set for Crafts - set includes everything you need for craft or jewelry projects. I like that this set has a nylon jaw flat nose pliers for straightening and shaping wire!
Hole Punch Set - Ideal for punching circles, hearts, and stars on paper, thin plastic, leather and metal. A fun crafter's tool!

Paint Set - There are so many paints to choose from so having a basic set of standard colors is a must have for any crafter. 

Paint Brush Set - different size brushes are needed along with the paints for a variety of projects. Definitely a must-have!

Mod Podge Set -  an all-in-one glue, sealer, and finish.  Use for decoupage - glue together pieces of paper, or fabric and also use it to glaze it on top of your finalized project to add a finished look. Comes in a variety of finishes and can be applied with foam brushes. .
Any good crafter should have multiple adhesives on hand for creating. I have a few favorites that you can group together into a gift bundle: 
RapidFuse - Sets in 30 seconds but is re-positionable for up to three minutes! It's a multi-purpose permanent adhesive. Great for both indoors and outdoors, too!

Fabri-Tac Fabric Glue - A fast grab, fast dry, flexible glue that's permanent and machine washable! A must have fabric glue!

Aileen's Tacky Glue - #1 glue choice of crafters! Dries clear and flexible and cleans up with water!

Tripod Ring Light - Perfect for taking photos and videos for craft tutorials and projects. Has an adjustable brightness lighting which is so important for good photos.
Bowdabra - When it comes to Bow Makers, the Bowdabra Bowmaker is a must have! You can make your own professional-quality, beautiful bows in just minutes. It is easy to use and you can make stunning bows of all kinds
with it.                                                                                                       
                                         











I hope you find this list useful in selecting items any crafter, especially a beginner, would love. It's by no means complete. It's a basic list - items that will get one started in the fun world of crafting. There are lots of gift giving items out there! I left off expensive equipment like cutting machines, sewing machines, and storage units, etc. I'm all about creating crafts that are inexpensive to make! And the fun part - they're all perfect to group into gift baskets for gift giving during the holidays!

  7. Why did I not know there was such a thing as a cordless glue gun!!! Finally found something to tell my mother in law to get me (since she always wants to get me craft supplies and usually suggests things I already have, lol)
