Claire, from Pillar Box Blue, has lots of upcycled craft ideas for us to view. Everything from furniture, food containers, to nature is shown in her list of projects. I’m loving the look of the old pallet she stenciled and added potted plants. Isn’t it awesome? You’re sure to find some inexpensive crafting ideas you’ll like to make, so head over to her blog to have a look!

JJ, at Thriving with Less, gathered a few west coast beach rocks and added words and simple designs to them. This inexpensive crafting project is perfect for displaying your beach vacation treasures. I really like how the varying designs and inspirational words look together in the woven basket! Hop over to her blog to find out what kind of crafting pen she used.

Helen, from Hello Sewing, teaches us how to make this great looking DIY crossover bag. She provides a very detailed tutorial to make this pattern easy to make on our own. You can use fabric from your stash to make this an inexpensive crafting project.
