    use of the word paraphernalia

    Few days back I had to describe a certain household object. Tool and object were'nt the apt word so I chose paraphernalia. However, I used it as singular which I know is wrong. I said - "its a household paraphernalia". Now I am wondering, if I still choose the word paraphernalia what would be the correct use. Would " its one of the household paraphernalia" be correct?

    You should say it's (it is) a piece of household paraphernalia.
