My Favorite Craft Supplies

I get a ton of questions about all the things I use for crafting, I figured I would put them into a list all in one place! I shop all over for my supplies, Dollar Tree, Hobby Lobby, Amazon etc.! I’ll add where I purchased each item and provide a link to each, if I am able to. The supplies from Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby you’ll most likely have to go to the store. The links provided from Amazon are affiliate links and I earn a small commission on the item, at NO extra cost to you. So lets begin to dig into all my favorite craft supplies!

This is the glue gun I use, it is a Ryobi cordless glue gun. It is AMAZING!! I love being able to have craft anywhere with this. You can get this at Home Depot or here is a link to get one from Amazon. Be sure to price shop and get yourself the best deal!

These are the glue sticks I use for the Ryobi glue gun. I normally buy them at Hobby Lobby with a coupon, they are one of the products at Hobby Lobby that doesn’t go on sale.

They will now be cheaper on Amazon here —–> https://amzn.to/3bM8Hcj

For my smaller glue gun, I use Gorilla Glue glue sticks, which I also bought at Hobby Lobby, now I will be buying them on Amazon too ——>https://amzn.to/3kEJqEY

One of the second most asked questions is about the brown antiquing wax I use. This is it! I usually buy this at Hobby Lobby in a 2oz bottle.

Here is the link to it on Amazon —> https://amzn.to/3kvz5uI

This is the sparkle glitter I use on everything, the Glamour Dust by Deco Art, I buy this at Hobby Lobby also. I do not recommend buying it on Amazon it is too much money. There is other places that sell it for cheaper online and in store.

Here is the self stick wallpaper I have on my desk. I covered the top of my desk with this, and it is amazing! It cleans up so well, with just a cloth and some cleaner. It was SUPER cheap too! Here is the link—–>https://amzn.to/3q7Qv1D

The heat gun I use, it is small and not bulky and works great!

This little lady bug vacuum is what I use to clean up dust and glitter and other things off my desk. It works so good and I can not believe the things it will pick up!!

You can find this here —> https://amzn.to/3kxLTB5

Fiskars make great scissors and these are the ones I use, except mine have a pretty design on the handle. Originally I got mine at Joann’s Crafts, but they are cheaper on Amazon.

Lighting is SO important, and that is why I went with an OttLite, It gives off natural light and makes things so much easier to see especially small details. This one has 4 different light settings and it doubles as a desk organizer, which I use to store all my pens and pencils. I am all for anything that has a dual duty! They aren’t expensive either on Amazon…I paid a lot more at JoAnn’s for mine!! I wish I had price shopped. =( Here is the link to this —->https://amzn.to/2OapUnC

This is an odd supply, but I love it. It is a spatula for a Cricut machine, used for weeding vinyl. However I use it for everything but that, I use it to pull apart Dollar Tree signs, and pop items off Dollar Tree signs I am going to make over. It also works great to scrape stickers off without ruining the items with a razor blade. This is one of my favorite tools, and it is super inexpensive!

Here is the link for one ——-> https://amzn.to/3dTFLlh

E6000 is great for bonding together glass and other items you want to NOT come apart. The smell is awful, I found this one and it is low odor and works great and the tube is much easier to keep clean! I got mine at Joann’s I believe and it was cheaper than Amazon, but if you can’t get out or aren’t close to a JoAnn’s here is the link to get one —> https://amzn.to/3kvCcmB

Here is the kind of Mod Podge I use, I like the matte finish not glossy. You can buy this at any craft store and even Walmart. Check around for prices, I do believe this 16oz on Amazon may be cheaper than stores. If you have a JoAnn’s or Michaels coupon they may be cheaper. Here is the link to the Amazon one ——-> https://amzn.to/3bLpuMs

Here are the wooden beads that I use, the half beads and then a mix of sizes in regular beads.

Here are the referral links for both Whole Beads and Half Beads

These are all the supplies I get from Dollar Tree for crafting! Below is a list in order from left to right! These you will have to look in the store for.

1, small ceramic trinket tray, I use this to put under my glue gun to catch any drips.

2, silicone Make-up applicator for hot gluing.

3, sponge pouncers, I use these for stenciling.

4, sanding sponge

5, silicone makeup brush cleaning mats, I use them to clean my paint brushes

6, paint brushes they have at Dollar Tree work great! I don’t buy expensive brushes it isn’t worth the money to me. My brushes get ruined fast and sometimes I forget to clean them and I am not painting large portraits or anything that requires me to use expensive brushes. I also buy the packs of brushes at Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby that have like 20 different brushes those are great also!

7, flexible cutting mats are amazing to have, I use them to cut on so I don’t ruin my desk top, painting on, and even gluing and mod podge. They help keep the surface clean and I just throw the mat in the sink and rinse it off.

8, paint trays, easy to clean and I ma not wasting lots of paper products using paper plates.

This is a LONG list of my favorite craft supplies, and I am sure as I find things or remember things I will keep adding to it. I encourage you to shop around and get the best prices you can for supplies. I don’t spend a lot of money on supplies, I am cheap LOL! Always look for coupons, check sales and even thrift stores, yard sale sand flea markets, it is amazing what you can find at those places for craft supplies.

You can find me on Facebook and YouTube using all my supplies!

    Janice you are so very thoughtful, sometimes I feel a bit shy to ask what us that & where did you get it…you’ve shown us how to use or apply it ~ thank you so very much for your kindness & thoughtfulness♡

  3. Thank you Janice for sharing your favorites with us.
    I have a question. I have had my Black and Decker 2 temp hot glue gun for probably 30 + years anditis now starting to drip a lot of glue when standing. Is it time for a new one?

  4. Does it matter if the antiquing wax has a different number?

    1. I don’t think it would matter as long as it is brown wax. Different sizes and brands may have different numbers, just make sure it is the color you want.

  5. What are the silver containers you have the pencils in?

    1. That is not my picture, it is a stock photo. However, they are quart sized paint cans, you can buy them at Lowes and Home Depot empty like that.
