Project-based blended learning is an innovative learning model viewed as an alternative reflecting 21st century learning. This study intended to investigate the effect of project-based blended learning and students’ creative towards their learning achievement. Pre-test and post-test quasi experimental with 2x2 factorial model were used as the research design by involving 60 eleventh-grade students of culinary study program at SMKN 2 Singaraja. They were selected as the research sample through conducting simple random sampling technique. A statistical analysis was conducted to analyse the obtained data from pre-test and post-test. The results of the study showed 1) there is different achievement between students who are taught using project-based blended learning and conventional method; 2) project-based blended learning is quite effective to increase students’ achievement; 3) there is an interactional effect between project-based learning and creativity on students’ achievement; 4) there is different achievement between students’ with high creativity of experimental and high control group; and 5) there is different achievement between students’ with low creativity of experimental and high control group. The application of project-based blended learning can improve students’ achievement indirectly through the boost of students’ creativity.
