One of our favorite crafts is an old-time favorite: cross stitch! Cross stitch projects are so much fun to create, and they make fantastic home décor gifts. They are well worth the time needed to complete an intricate cross stitch pattern. It can be a hassle, however, to acquire all of the materials needed to make just one cross stitch project. If you’re new to cross stitch or have dabbled in the craft before, you’ll appreciate the ease of creating gorgeous projects with our assortment of cross stitch patterns. We have all sorts of cross stitch kits that will complement any taste. From animals to scenery to quirky quotes and sayings, you’ll find a cross stitch kit that you’ll be thrilled to create.
If you’re an animal-lover, then you’re in luck: we have a ton of cross stitch kits that feature animals. One of our favorites is the Ice Cardinal kit. This lovely kit features a beautiful red cardinal bird in a serene, icy background. It would look stunning as part of your Christmas and holiday decorations, or even as a holiday gift. This kit includes presorted thread, 14 count black Aida, a needle, and easy instructions. Available for $22.09.
Scenery depictions are great because they can match any décor and can be displayed year-round. If you can’t afford a weekend getaway to a tropical island or log cabin in the mountains, a pretty cross stitch scene can help you imagine a vacation right from your own home. This winter, enjoy the Winter View cross stitch kit. Looking at this gorgeous log cabin and snowy mountains by a creek is much nicer than looking out your window at dirty snow and a driveway that needs shoveling! This package contains 14 count cotton fabric, woolen and acrylic yarn in 17 colors, one needle and one color chart. Available for only $30.60.
Cross stitch is a popular craft for both the young and old because cross stitch is a popular medium for displaying fun quotes and sayings. Whether there’s a memory you want to commemorate, a family motto, or a hilarious inside joke, cross stitch is the perfect craft for personalization. One of our favorites is the What Happens At Grandma’s Mini Stamped kit. This cross stitch kit references an age-old joke that grandmothers always spoil their grandchildren, especially with treats! Featuring a plethora of half-eaten sweets like cookies, soda pop, candy and ice cream, it also shows the funny saying, “What happens at Grandma’s STAYS at Grandma’s.” Available for only $7.98.

I “mustache” you a question… do you love the current mustache fad? Mustache motifs are everywhere- from quirky necklaces and prints on shirts to super-sized versions placed on the hood of cars!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s our favorite time of year at CutRateCrafts. We absolutely adore the caroling, homemade treats and beautiful decorations associated with the season. One thing that we detest, however, are the bustling holiday crowds as everyone rushes to find gifts for their friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. No wonder holiday traffic is so horrible! Skip the long lines and frustrating bumper-to-bumper traffic and grab all of your favorite Christmas essentials at CutRateCrafts.
Is there anything more enjoyable than snuggling on the couch on a cold winter night with a steaming mug of hot cocoa while making your favorite craft? Hot cocoa is one of our favorite winter treats, so of course we were thrilled that it has been combined with one of our favorite crafts, cross stitch! The Cocoa Mug Ornaments Counted Cross Stitch Kit contains 6 adorable cross stitch ornaments for you to make with a delightful hot chocolate motif. The kit includes 14-count 100% cotton Aida, 6-strand carded 100% cotton floss, backing fabric, needle, graph and instructions. Decorate your tree with these adorable ornaments for only $15.29.
If you hate holiday crowds, then a great solution is to make homemade gifts for your friends and family. Looking for the perfect idea?
