Trying to find good crafting surfaces? Look online! You’ll find the most selection and the best budget friendly options. Here are my top picks!
I’m not an expert in everything. You won’t find me talking about microeconomics (it always bored me in college) or showing you how to split an atom (I’ve always wondered why anyone would want to do that anyway?).
But what I do have a bit of experience in is crafting surfaces. Because I’ve literally shopped for every craft supply at every store in the universe. I can pretty much tell you what to get where and what it’s going to cost you. I know my stuff.
Buying Craft Surfaces Online
I buy a lot in brick and mortar stores – don’t get me wrong. But I also buy a lot of crafting surfaces online.
Tip #1: I’m a proud Amazon Prime member so I can get the free shipping. You don’t have to be a Prime member to purchase these items, but it’s one of my tips to save money on your crafting surfaces.
Tip #2: buy in bulk! For example, I use a lot of mason jars and canvas so I always buy more than one at a time. Are you ready to check out my recommended crafting surfaces to get online? Here they are!

Get your “art on” with these blank canvases. You can sit down and relax while you pour your creativity into wonderful masterpieces via painting, decoupage, mixed media, or any other art form you can think of.
These blank tote bags are begging to be turned into a craft project. I could see them being painted, appliqued, or monogrammed with names, initials, or words to describe what they are used for (groceries, mail, etc).
I have so many ideas for felt, especially for children. One of my favorites? Cutting out different shapes or food items so they can pretend to be a chef or restaurant owner. The felt is easy to fold, cut, glue or even paint; so the crafting opportunities are endless.
There are so many ideas that could be accomplished with this square pallet. You could paint and then add a motivational quote. Or simply create something with your last name and year your family was established!
For those that love to take their crafts or artwork on the go! You could take this book to the park, relax under a tree, and paint the scenery. You can also write down all your crafting ideas or use for collaging and journaling.
Scratch out your next piece of artwork on these black scratchboards. As you scratch, the white underneath will shine through, popping from the black. If you’ve never tried a scratchboard, they are good fun!
