10+ Most Profitable Crafts to Sell

Sticking with the global pandemic theme above, people are saying that soap equals hope. Washing our hands has been taken to new levels and when you’re doing something more than ever, you need to have super smelling soap to wash with. You just need to figure out if you’re making bars, bottles or maybe even both.
If you’re handy with graphic design, creating personalised posters can be one of the most profitable crafts to sell. You can tailor your creations to different parts of the house, from the kitchen to the dining room. Parents love having beautiful personalised artwork on the walls of their baby’s nursery too so this is a perfect avenue to go down. Maybe you could use your photography skills to create something extra special?
These are extremely sellable as people love buying them for gifts. Candles are part of many people’s homes. They’re fairly inexpensive to make but if you brand them well you can sell them for quite the profit. Choose some well-known combinations of fragrances and essential oils whilst opting for natural appeal like beeswax. For the summer you could even create citronella candles to help keep bugs away when lazing in the garden.
Dishwasher Safe Painted Dishes
Dishes need to be dishwasher safe these days but that doesn’t mean you can’t create some unique plates and bowls to eat from. You can use a Pebeo paint pen and create doodles or personal illustrations on your dinnerware. This is even better if you have a distinctive style with the pen. These make for amazing wedding gifts. Share them on your social media pages and you’ll get plenty of people interested in buying!
Why don’t you get your sewing machine out and see what else you can create, as well as the face masks. You could start looking at the new school year and offer custom bags. Make up bags? Pencil cases? Maybe you could create little bags to attach to your key ring which can hold your earphones? People love storage and if you can create some for specific reasons in adorable fabrics, they’ll sell!
The world is all about self-care, taking time out to unwind and focus on your mental health. What better way to do this than a relaxing bath? Bath bombs in a variety of shapes, sizes and of course smells, are amazing. Encourage people to get the kids into bed, draw themselves a hot bath and let the fizz of the bath bomb unwind their muscles.
