11 Unusual Materials to craft with

Sharing is caring!

You all know by now how I love to incorporate unusual materials into many of my crafts. I created this fun guide for you on eBay with some of my favorite picks!


Check out these 11 unusual materials to craft with! You'll automatically upgrade your DIY ideas and crafts when you use things that are vintage, not meant for crafting, and out-of-the-box!


While most craft closets I see are stocked with the usual felt, duct tape, and pinking shears, I prefer to have some things that are slightly out-of-the-norm. Crafting is a creative process, so why not be creative with the supplies as well?


When you incorporate these different products into your craft setup, you’ll find that it sparks your creativity on a new level. I have a huge box on my craft desk that holds all of these unique finds. 


While I’ve started you off with eleven ideas, and some of my favorites, the possibilities are truly endless! I love finding unique vintage products to craft with, as they add an extra charm, with the rustic irregularity that is often a feature – and eBay is full of them! Some of these are vintage, some are not – but all are so invigorating and refreshing to craft with.


Start with this list of eleven unusual craft materials, and then browse around for more. You’ll open up a whole new door of crafting possibilities!
