You don’t have to be the craftiest or the most innovative person in order to succeed in DIY. You do have to have confidence, inspiration, and the right tools. Some DIY projects require big hefty tools that are useless to a beginner, so instead of investing your time and money into items that you might not end up using, buy these tools and you will actually accomplish your DIY goals!
A rotary cutter is a great tool to have because of its circular blade which makes for cutting all types of materials easy. You can use it to make straight lines for paper and even difficult fabrics to work with. Just grab a ruler or a straightedge and you will have perfect lines every time.
I use an @olfacreates 28mm #rotarycutter for cutting out garments. So smooth around curves and the smaller size makes it incredibly easy to maneuver. #marthaovershirt by @stylearc Handkerchief #linen in crisp white for the win! Hopefully will have this done by the weekend. #memademay2018 #memademay #handmade #handmadeisbetter #isewmyownclothes #isewmyclothes #makersgonnamake #dmmqg #coloradomodernquilters @denvermetromqg
Hot Glue Gun
A hot glue gun can be used for almost any project around your house, outside, or even for clothes. Hot glue is a great alternative for people that are not comfortable sewing because it adheres really well to most materials.
Just a little bit excited to try these two bad boys out!!! I'm so lucky to have received some products from @shamrockaustralia today! As everyone knows, I love my adhesives and lately, to achieve great shapes in my artificial flower headpieces I have been absolutely smashing my old hot glue gun. Of course I blew it up and have been making do with a bit of a dodgy one as I waited for my package from Shamrock. Check out all the features! I'll be trying them out tomorrow and can't wait. These are available at @spotlightstores! #shamrockaustralia #spotlight #hotgluegun #hotgluegunbandit #headpiecedesigner
Keeping different types of tape around for DIY projects is an easy way to know you have some material to work with, like making a fabric out of duct tape, and more.
