Free craft samples and goodies are always nice. Who can say no to free craft stuff! These type of samples are not as popular as food samples or cleaning supply samples, but they are out there.
I’ve went on a hunt, save you the time. I am trying to just mention samples that don’t say they will expire, but they may – so claim these while you can. If something is expired I apologize – just comment below and I will update it.
If I come across something new I will be sure to add it in.
Let’s get to the freebies!
Okay, now to the free craft stuff! I have divided these into 6 categories.
- Free Craft Printables and Patterns
- Free Crafting Supplies
- Free Art Supply Samples
- Craft Coupons
- Free Craft Paper Samples
- Other Free Crafts Stuff
Disclaminer: I have not signed up for all these free craft samples myself so I do not warrant the accuracy nor am I responsible for the results. The only ones I can attest for are my own freebies in this post – if you find that any of these others don’t work feel free to contact me and I’ll update them right away!
Also: this post includes affiliate links: this means I do get a small reward for sharing these with you (at no cost to you) and I use all those pennies towards my own crafting supplies to keep this blog’s creativity going

Of course, instead of hunting for free craft samples, you can be a coupon guru!
Craft stores are GREAT for giving awesome coupons, and if you play the game right YOU end up with the amazing deal – it’s almost as good as free stuff (I did say “almost”).

On top of just hunting for free craft samples and free craft stuff, you can also join some fun craft swaps. This is when you join a group and everyone creates something for someone else, and mails it. The are SOOO fun!
