My Essential Craft Supplies

I have been promising I would share some of my must have craft supplies over  on my Facebook Live posts.   It is time!  If you have already watched too many hours of television, maybe it is time to get crafting!  Get your supplies and then on Thursday I will be showcasing and linking up to numerous bloggers, each featuring a different craft! 

These are the knives you have seen me using on my unboxing videos and for cutting styrofoam among other things.  These are such a bargain, and so handy to have around.  I bought these to use them when preparing fresh flowers, but have found so many other uses for them!  Be careful when they are new!  They are VERY sharp!  Guess how I learned that?

If you have watched me make a wreath or swag over on Facebook or YouTube, you have likely seen me use my Steelpix stemming machine!  They are not inexpensive, but  wow are they a fantastic tool!   I also use “greening pins” quite often.  Those wood wired sticks are your option if you don’t have a Steelpix machine! 

A rotary cutter is a fantastic tool, particularly when cutting fabric and deco mesh!  Glue guns are a basic that I use all the time, but my latest find is silicone fingertips!  These will keep you from burning your fingers while using that hot glue!  One of my latest craft experiences has been playing with pom poms!  You can find all kinds of pom pom makers or just rely on wrapping the yarn around a piece of cardboard!  Paintbrushes!  If you are going to paint, you are going to need brushes!

  1. Thanks Chlie for this list. Brushes I a ton since I paint so much.

    A few of them I don’t and began adding before the virus hit.



  2. I love the checklist your shared. I had most but not all. I have put the items I don’t have on a list to get when we are able to. Thanks!
