I like cheap crafts and I cannot lie! I love to craft, but I hate to spend a fortune on craft materials. Craft supplies can be really expensive and even shopping at the dollar store can quickly add up if you do a lot of crafting. You can always use stuff around the house and free items, but can you really make crafts that actually look nice from junky stuff like rocks, bottle caps, old discarded pallets, old cards, maps, magazines, and yard sale finds? Yes you can! It just takes a little creativity. Here is a collection of Pinterest inspired, inexpensive crafts using materials you might usually throw away.
