Thinking about making crafts to sell? Lots of girls have a crafts business, it’s a terrific way to make money. Besides, its so much more fun than some other part time jobs, you get to have the pride of watching people buy things you’ve made and also the joy of being creative too.
We’ve found you 50 terrific ideas, to help you get started. There are so many crafts that you can do and make to sell to people. One of the first things to think about is who you will sell them to? If you are selling crafts to other teenage girls, then you will be making a different type of craft than if you are selling to your parents’ friends.
A good tip we can suggest to you is to consider what crafts you enjoy the most. You may want to try something different too but making a craft to sell means that you have to do it over and over again. It also helps if you can add your own unique twist to the craft. Remember that lots of girls will be selling crafts at your school and in your neighborhood so you want yours to stand out. Take a look at these fun craft ideas and then think about ways you can add your own special touches to make them something people can only buy from you.
If you are going to sell, we recommend that you start with just 1 or up to 3, but don’t do too many of them. Happy Crafting!
