Best Cheap Crafts:
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!
