Aldi’s craft special buys are brilliant for snapping up some bargain craft supplies for your next creative project. So we're very excited that Aldi is releasing some new goodies, including Christmas craft kits.

With autumn here, there’s never been a better time to hunker down with a new craft project, whether that’s picking up a knitting pattern or trying to master a different craft skill.

From fat quarters to yarns, craft kits and even sewing machines, it has everything a crafting enthusiast needs, whether you are a seasoned pro – or a novice who is looking to start a new hobby.

You can find a whole array of craft kits, including crochet and jewellery making, as well as newly added Christmas wreath kits and paint-your-own festive figures.

And it’s available to buy online now, or you can pick up items during your regular supermarket shop.

In true Aldi style, the collection is super affordable. Here are a few highlights to look out for now.

Fat Quarters

Fat quarters are great for a whole range of sewing projects, such as patchwork quilts, and Aldi has a great range. We love this five-pack of festive prints for Christmas projects.


Knitters can stash up at Aldi with bundles of yarn that are often sold in multipacks. You can now pick up this 16-pack of 50g DK yarn in muted winter tones that'll come in for a whole range of projects (online only). Or if you want to knit a hat, preorder a pompom hat yarn pack – and a pompom scarf yarn to boot.

Wreath kits

If you want to make your own Christmas wreath, Aldi is launching an adorable pompom wreath kit for under a tenner. Included is a metal frame, yarn, pompom makers and a ribbon. For those wanting something more traditional, the store is also selling a felt wreath kit for the same price.

Paint your own Christmas decoration kits

A great activity to do with kids, this festive paint set includes three planters, paints and a paintbrush. For those wanting standalone decorations, snap up a paint-your-own Santa, tree or snowman.

Necchi digital sewing machine

With 100s of 5-star reviews, the Necchi sewing machine has left plenty of Aldi shoppers happy with this specialbuy. It features an automatic needle threader, easy thread cutter and a twin needle function. You can also choose from a hundred built-in stitches and alphabet stitches, plus there's an LED light to highlight your work.

Crochet kit

Aldi has a great range of craft kits to dip your toe into a new technique. We particular love this Little Men and Little Miss crochet kit, which includes everything you need to make five characters.

LED Task Lamp

As the night’s draw in, it can be tricky to see your intricate crafting in low light. This LED task lamp will make it much easier to see just what you’re doing. The versatile neck allows you to direct the light to exactly where you need it and the floodlight effect eliminates shadows.

Watercolour paints set

If you'd like to try watercolour painting, this is a great set to give it a go, including 12 watercolour paints, three brushes, watercolour paper, a sketching pencil and a mixing palette. You can find more tips to get started at our watercolour painting for beginners guide.

Paper and card pack

If you do lots of papercraft and card making, this bumper pack of card is a must for your craft stash. Containing three packs of A4 paper in pastel, neon and brights (250 sheets in each) and a pack of 80 A4 pieces of coloured card, you'll get plenty of craft projects out of this. Also, good for art and crafts for kids.

Jewellery making kit

Learn some new craft techniques and get yourself some new accessories to boot with this jewellery making kit bundle. Using polymer clay, macramé and beads, it'll give you a good feel for jewellery making – or you can buy them separately if you prefer.

Embroidery threads

Stock up for your next cross stitch or embroidery project with this pack of 36 coloured threads, a cross-stitch chart and three sheets of aidi cotton fabric (14 count). The embroidery thread has six strands a thread, 100% cotton and 8m per skein.
