When it comes to inexpensive and unconventional crafting supplies, you just need to look around your home. So far, I have a list of crafts using paper cups, straws, coffee filters, cardboard, and even pista shells.

There are so many other ideas on my list of budget crafts. Today I’ll give you some craft ideas using cotton balls. Yep, cardboard toilet paper tubes aren’t the only craft supply you can find in your bathroom!

What can you make with cotton balls?

When trying to decide on a craft or DIY project using a specific item, ask yourself “What comes to mind when I look at it?”

When I look at cotton balls I think fluffy, white, and airy. What else can you describe with one or all of these adjectives?

Clouds, snowmen, marshmallows, some fur (bunnies, lambs, Yeti?), Santa’s beard, popcorn, ghosts, cotton candy...

These are things you could make with cotton balls!

Keep in mind that the craft you make doesn’t have to be for kids. Adults can also use cotton balls in their DIY projects.

If you look at the list above, there are some items that have to do with holidays. You can make a snowman wreath or an Easter bunny wall hanging.

Are you starting to get some ideas? If not, the list below should give you some inspiration. Scroll down for 30 crafts with cotton balls!
