15 Craft Magazines You Should Read

I don't know about you, but one of my favorite things to do is to curl up with a good craft magazine! There is just nothing like being curled up with your magazine (with your choice of drink in hand) and writing down ideas for future projects and (in my case) future blog posts! 

If there is one thing that I have always encourage on this blog it is to READ! Especially if your a crafter or blogger. This is because their are so many different types of crafting to discover and there is always something new to learn in the world of crafting. You don't know how many times I've read an article in a craft magazine and found either a new product, craft project, or blogger that was absolutely amazing! 

Now I tend to read more general craft magazines like Mollie Makes or Craft Ideas because they showcase a little bit everything. However, there are so many great standalone craft magazines (like Card Maker) which showcases only one particular style of crafting. Either way, reading a craft magazine will help get those creative juices flowing! 

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post called 25 Craft Books You Should Read. Inspired by that post and my love of craft magazines, I decided to write today's post called 15 Craft Magazines You Should Read. Below I listed the magazines in no particular order and try to cover a variety of crafts topics to make everyone happy!

  1. This is a great resource post, Katie! My favorites out of these are Mollie Makes & Do It Yourself magazine.
    My most favorite magazine (that I've actually been published in a few times) was Creating Keepsakes, but they're not around anymore sadly.

  2. I remember Creating Keepsakes! They always had bright, fun tutorials!

    It really sucks when you get attached to a magazine and then they go out of print. I used to love Mary Engelbreits's Home Companion magazine. That magazine was a bit like Mollie Makes, where they showcased tutorials, artist interviews and house tours. I even tried to go on Ebay to find older issues to re-purchase!


I love comments, so thank you for taking the time to leave one. :)
