Once you become a true cheap crafter, it becomes less of a hobby and more of lifestyle.  You can see your creativity spreading from your projects to your décor, your cooking, your clothing, and your home life generally.  On Family Chic, Camilla Fabbri explores all the ways to expand innovative ideas beyond the craft room and into every aspect of home life.

Best Cheap Crafts:


Yarn Love


Paper Umbrella Wreath


Grass Table

Favorite source for cheap craft materials:

I have so many places – but traditional craft stores are always my go-to place for the basics. However, I love working with the surprising stuff I can find at Home Depot & Party City too.

Why she makes cheap crafts:

I love the challenge of working with less – it’s more fun to shock people with simplicity than it is to impress with excess.

Tips for cheap crafters:

Stay organized and reuse leftover supplies. I also find a lot of secondhand craft supplies  – things like grapevine wreaths, bags of buttons, Styrofoam cones – for pennies at most resale shops.

TERRIFIC TAKEAWAY:  “It’s more fun to shock people with simplicity than it is to impress with excess.”  Well, if that couldn’t be the go-to motto for cheap crafters, I don’t know what could!

Thanks, Camilla, for your great perspective!


  1. Ahhh Camilla, she is the best!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing these awesome crafts!I’ll be adding Paper Umbrella Wreath to our ‘to do’ list!

  3. I really love the craft work. I use to recycle the useless things to get them converted to the decoration material or for some basic domestic use. I really loved the images you have given above. This really has inspired me to do something new.
