So, you have a crafter in your life that you need to buy for this holiday season. Maybe you have a slight idea of what she (or he) wants and maybe you have no clue. Once you get your Christmas budget set up, get your holiday shopping done early with this Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Crafters.
Hands down, my Silhouette machine is my all-time favorite crafting supply. I can cut absolutely any shape or font. I can create my own design AND it cuts so many different materials. It’s also got a great print and cut feature where you can print an image on your home printer and then feed it into the Silhouette to cut it out perfectly. The Silhouette comes in two sizes: the Cameo which cuts materials up to 12″x 12″ and the Portrait which cuts materials up to 8.5″ x 11″.
The material that I use the most with my Silhouette machine is vinyl. Vinyl comes in every color of the rainbow. It is peel and stick which makes is super easy to use. One of my favorite places to get vinyl is Expressions Vinyl.
HOT GLUE GUN
A hot glue gun is a must for any crafter. It makes projects so much easier.
I love chalkboards. They are very versatile and you can write any message match any decor. I use them a lot especially around the holidays.
If you use chalkboards, chalk pens are a must! They are so much easier to use than regular chalk. No dust and you get a smooth line. Just make sure that you read the labels. The pen shown below is permanent on porous surfaces
Washi tape has so many different uses. Did you know that you can make Christmas ornaments with it? Use it to embellish your Christmas cards, seal an envelope or make holiday artwork.
I love glitter. Glitter makes everything better. It’s a must on my list.
Canvas is a great medium for many craft projects. One thing that I like do do with canvas is make holiday signs for the house. I’ve already got several in mind for this year. It is light weight which makes hanging easy.
Chalk paint is very popular. It is used to get the shabby chic or distressed look. One of the best things about chalk paint is that you don’t need to prime your piece first. No priming? Sign me up!
Mod Podge is decoupage. It comes in several finishes. Use it to adhere paper to almost anything and to seal your projects.
Every crafter needs and ample supply of scrapbook paper. You can buy coordinating packs like this one.
Still not sure what to get? You can never go wrong with a gift card. Michaels, JoAnn’s and Hobby Lobby are some of my favorites.
Package some of these gifts up in a basket, add a printable gift tag and you’ve got one person checked off your list.
