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.
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. If you are looking for something easy and cheap to make and sell on Etsy or another online marketplace, this is one of my top picks. You can find reclaimed wood for free, and this distressed DIY farmhouse decor is about as popular as it gets, many of the Etsy sellers I saw who offered something similar were most often sold out. Cute for a gift idea, I highly recommend making these cute handmade picture frames to have on hand for Christmas holiday sales.
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. Super impressive gift idea, these DIY bowls are cute ideas to sell just about anywhere. One of the most popular items on Etsy is home decor, so we say try these out. Much faster to make than many DIY home decor items, these crafty bowls are quick, cheap and easy. What more could you ask for in a craft project ideas to sell and make money from?
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.
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!
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.
