Thrifting For Crafting

There are so many types of crafts that you could choose to make , I am someone who loves to make many different kinds of crafts. If you love to craft or are someone who wants to learn to make crafts then thrifting is a wonderful source for crafting supplies. You will still have to buy certain supplies at retail prices, but if you keep your eyes open you will find a wonderful assortment of items at thrift stores, yard sales, garage sales and auctions.

What would you like to try to make?

In my adventures in thrifting there always seems to be a great supply of fabrics, yarns, beads and buttons. Also you will find great pairs of jeans and this is a great supply as jeans are so versatile in crafting from making pillows and other home decor items to purses and some funky belts and even jewelry.

To save money and time you may want to make a list of the craft projects and the supplies required to make them, keep this list in your purse or somewhere you will be able to pull it out when you are planning on going shopping in a thrift stores or if you are out shopping those yard sales . Or if you like to shop on the Internet keep your list handy as you are surfing through all the vintage and thrift stores on the internet.

Crafting with thrift store finds is a wonderful way to make one of a kind items for yourself or for gifts for birthdays, Christmas and any occasion that you will need a gift.

You should also look around you house for items that you can recycle into craft projects that are beautiful and useful.

Have fun with thrifting for crafting. There is so much to do so get going.

I will be back with some other ideas and projects as I can get around to it.
