You Tube: An Important DIY Tool?

If you are into crafting, creating, or decorating, you may consider some of the following essential tools in your DIY arsenal:

  • Glue Gun
  • Crafting/Jewelry Wire
  • Glitter
  • Quality Scissors
  • Paper/Vinyl Cutter
  • Needle Nose Pliers

….and a host of other items I’m too tired to think of right now.  But have you ever considered You Tube to be an important crafting/decorating/DIY tool?  If not, you should! It’s not just for funny videos or clips of your favorite TV shows.  You can find an enormous amount of how-to videos for a wide variety of projects.  In fact, if I have a question about a project, I often search You Tube before Google or message boards.

For instance, I consulted You Tube during our kitchen makeover, when making a tu-tu, and most recently when making a few Mardi Gras hair bows:


I found several videos that were very helpful in showing me how to get the loops just right and stack the different ribbons together.


There’s everything from sewing tutorials to how-tos on building decks.  They even have a Lowe’s Channel with loads of home improvement advice! 

If you are a visual learner like me, You Tube is a great resource because you can see the exact steps needed to complete your project and follow along at your own pace if need be.  I highly recommend checking it out before starting your next project!

p.s. This post is entirely my own opinion, I have not been compensated or influenced in any way by You Tube.
