Sarah’s craft supply gift idea got me thinking about the piles of household items that add variety to your art table for free.
- Scrap fabric and paper (I often raid the Goodwill bin for material)
- Cotton balls
- Aluminum foil
- Freezer paper
- Cereal boxes and other colorful packaging
- Magazine pages
- Almost any office supplies
- …and a million more ideas.
Parenthackers, what are your favorite household items-turned-craft-materials?
Be careful: you can go crazy saving stuff until your craft area is an overwhelming mish-mash of junk. Use spare containers (empty wipe boxes, washed out jars, retired plastic storageware, etc.) to keep everything organized.
