Crafts to Make and Sell for Profit: 200+ Craft Ideas!

If you are looking for creative ways to make money, this huge list of crafts to make and sell is one full of inspirational and easy crafts to make! With over 200 items – and growing as we find new cool tutorials for you to add – this is the best list of crafts to make and sell for profit!

As I was curating this list, I started to remember past farmer's markets and craft shows that I've attended. So many of the items on this list are items that those vendors were selling! I even did the math in my head as I looked at each item (as I always do) calculating the raw materials and manpower required and they are making a very generous profit!

Every crafter started somewhere for different reasons. Whether it was from a true passion in creating treats and toys for their pets, or the love to make their own friends and family members non-toxic personal care items. They each took the opportunity to take their own DIY's and sell the crafts to make a profit!

Things to Make and Sell from Home

One of the benefits to making crafts from home is that you get to be *at home* working! If the margins aren't exactly what you were hoping for you also have to consider that you getting to make your own hours to run a business. That is one of those priceless benefits.

You can also get your process streamlined well while being at home and start to make items in bulk. This is an area that my husband is a HUGE support since his day job is to optimize operational output. I've had to ask him to settle down with all of his suggestions a few times as he's watched me work less than efficient, apparently. :)

Hot Craft Ideas to Sell

Different seasons create higher trends or “hot” crafts that will sell well. There is a different season for Christmas crafts to sell, since those most likely won't sell well with any Halloween crafts. Craft ideas to use during the Summer months will most likely sell better during that timeframe. Don't spend your time and money creating crafts that may not be in season for whatever craft sale you may be attending.
