Free Craft Blog Templates, Backgrounds and Layouts
If you are an avid crafter like myself, you may want to consider starting a craft blog. Having a craft blog allows you the opportunity to share your art with those who will appreciate it most, exposes you to resources you didn't know were available, and gives you access to many social groups where you can meet other crafters like yourself.
Before you make your first blog post, it is important that you make your blog as eye-catching as possible, especially since you will have very little content displayed at first. Below is a list of websites offering free craft-themed blog templates to get you started.
