Free Craft Supplies

Find Free Stuff You Can use in Your Crafting


While free craft patterns and project ideas abound on the Web, free craft supplies are harder to come by.... Believe me, I have searched and searched.

I did manage to find some sites that have 'free' samples that you can use in your crafting. Please read the 'fine print' carefully! Some of these offers do charge a shipping fee, require a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope), or require you to do other things. Also, take a little extra time to explore the Web sites belonging to these companies; it is a great way to say thank you to them for their free offers.

If you try any of these free offers, write to me with your review of them, and I will post your opinions here! If you know of a free offer that should be posted here, or would like to offer a freebie to be featured exclusively on the Family Crafts site, please let me know.

    This freebie is from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.

  • Million Dollar Bill
    Send a self-addressed stamped envelope to receive a free sample of the fun million dollar bills this company prints. Order for the fun od it, or use it for origami creations!

    A free T-shirt with something printed on it... Perhaps you can use it for tie-dye or something similar?

    If you don't already get a ton of these in the mail, you can request many, use them as intended, and then try one of these CD Crafts!

(Note: These offers were all valid at the time this page was posted; however, with the ever-changing nature of the Web, pages are removed or changed often. If you happen to find one of these offers no longer exists, please drop me a line! None of these offers or companies are endorsed by me. I am simply sharing information that I found. I have not tried all of these free offers either....)
