Don’t misunderstand. I love my favorite craft store. Some might say I spend too much time shopping there. That doesn’t mean they’re the only source for my craft supplies, though. Keep an open mind and you can find surprising places to buy craft supplies!
What do crafting and Sears have in common? Tools! Tiny screwdrivers and needle nose pliers are perfect for making jewelry. A compact drill is perfect for small DIY projects. Heavy duty glue guns? They’re worth their weight in gold.
What can you buy at Walgreens? If you love to paint, you’ll find tons of non-traditional paint supplies. Makeup brushes are perfect for detail work. Toothbrushes get a great splatter effect. Cotton swabs help clean up tiny details. Baby wipes do a super job of cleaning off your crafting surfaces and picking up all of that glitter.
My favorite stop at Home Depot? The paint desk. Painters tape is a great for creating clean edges without damaging your surfaces. Drop cloths are an inexpensive source of canvas fabric. My favorite supplies, though, are the paint samples and oops shelf. They’re high quality paints available at deeply discounted prices.
You know Party City is the place to go when you’re throwing your little one’s birthday party. But did you know you can also find great craft supplies? They’re the perfect sources for candy, especially when you’re creating a craft that requires one specific color. The jewel of the store? Their impressive selection of crepe paper. Crepe paper is your starting point for DIY tassels, photo backdrops, pinatas and more.
I adore office supplies. Fancy paper clips and cute push pins make me giddy. A visit to OfficeMax can supply those office supply thrills and keep your craft stash fully stocked. Keep plenty of printer ink on hand for all of those printables. Pick up fun paper for all of your scrapbooking. And don’t forget the basics you need like great glue and scissors.
