Looking for creative ways to make some extra cash this year? What better a creative way to make extra money than by selling some DIYs you made? When I was looking for stuff to make and sell online, things to sell on Etsy and at craft fairs, I made this list. I wanted to share it with you since I learned quite a bit about what to make and sell online. I found a little something for everyone, too – DIY gifts, jewelry, wall art, home decor, pillows, coasters, bags and clocks. Whether you are just starting out trying to sell things or are already an expert and power seller on Ebay, you are sure to find a few new cool ideas for crafts to make and sell. Sewing projects, painting projects, inexpensive crafts you can make from things you buy at the dollar stores, and my favorite kind- projects from reclaimed wood.
5 Crafts Ideas To Make And Sell
1. DIY Pallet Plaques
This cute little picture frame is so simple, so elegant, but so rustic. Made from upcycled wood pallets, this frame has the look that is oh so popular right now. I can sell as many of these as I can make, too! Learn how to make these homemade frames in this easy to follow tutorial. Customize the frames with the paint colors of your choice, too! You can even add embellishment if you like to the upper and lower bars. So creative, a great DIY project you will want to check out and try yourself.
2. Crafty DIY Rope Bowls
This rope bowl only looks expensive and hard to make. I was so surprised when I found out elegant DIY home decor like this could be made with only rope and a glue gun! Craft your bowls in minutes and you will have a ton of them to sell in no time. Try using different kinds of rope and jute when making them so you can offer your customers a variety of choices. These homemade bowls are perfect for holding fruit, yarn, napkins, home decor accessories, bread, and pretty much anything you like to put in them. This craft makes an awesome and cheap DIY gift, too.
3. No Sew Pillow Cover
I saw these at a craft fair where a couple was selling them for $50 a piece. The cute colors and fun patterns just make you want to go touch them (and hopefully buy them and take them home) Check out the tutorial by Put and Pull to learn how to make these highly marketable pillows.
4. Washi Tape Mini Wood Pallet Coasters
Looking for easy ways to make money from home? How about making these adorable but affordable coasters that look just like tiny painted pallets? Made with only craft sticks, glue and washi tape, you can customize the look of these DIY pallet coasters and create endless possibilities. These need to be packed well, but are super light and fit in small shipping envelopes, so they are one of my top picks for things to sell on Etsy and Ebay. One of the cutest crafts ideas to make and sell ever!
5. DIY Prism Light Candle
I just saw these for sale on Amazon’s new site, handmade. Beautiful scatter candles like this cast amazing shadows when lit. Make them with mason jars and glass stones from the dollar store. You will need some patience when it comes to letting the glue dry (don’t use a glue gun, as candles melt the glue right off!) but these can be made in all sorts of colors. I found blue, green, ged, gold and clear glass rocks to try out.
