Wondering if you can start an online business selling DIY crafts and make some extra cash?

The opportunity for a craft business is massive.

Globally, the craft business is projected to hit $50.9 billion in 2024. With a unique idea like making crafts from beeswax or running a subscription box business with different crafts each month, you should be asking – what products could you make and sell to tap into that?

Crafts to Sell Online

You shouldn’t just pick up any craft and think you’d make extra money from it. You also have to put the right side of your brain to work. You need an in-demand product niche and a target audience ripe for marketing. You find that through proper research.

When you are the manufacturer, you are in complete control of your brand marketing. The buck stops with you when it comes to quality and price. If you’re an artist, there’s no limit to what you can sell.

Not the DIY type? Don’t fret. You can still sell handmade products by private or white labeling them. You can also bundle like products to create your own subscription boxes.

Short on DIY project ideas? I’ve got over 100 things to make and sell. Whether you’re a beginner or a small business looking to expand your offerings, there’s something on this list for you.

Before sell crafts on marketplace like Etsy, realize the long-term opportunity is better on your own site.

Sites like Etsy continually squeeze the profit margin out of sellers. Don’t be the victim of changing policies that kill profitability.

I looked into the market for products that people are searching for and buying and narrowed it down to 10 categories of crafts that you can make and cash in on. In addition to showing you the top DIY products that are in demand, I’ve also included resources and tutorials to show you how to make them.

Please do not blindly copy these ideas and try to sell them as your own. Use them to inspire your own business idea.

You can turn to social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram for market research to help guide you, too.

9 Home Decor Product Ideas

Crafts To Make and Sell

People want to see unique pieces in their homes, and that interest keeps on growing; it could be because of the ideas on Pinterest or sellers just dishing out some really high-quality stuff.

Whatever the reason is, entering this market makes a lot of sense. The industry is set to clock in at an estimated $838.6 billion by 2027. You should look into selling any of these:

Pixel Art / Paintings

Pixels are popular things to make and sell. The monthly search volume for pixel art on Amazon is 1700 a month. Google keyword volume comes in at 205K per month.

Paint a few originals and use print-on-demand when you sell them. You can also sell frames via drop shipping as a cross-sell. You can sell these on Merch by Amazon, too.

Pexel Art


Having clocks is about time management, but they are also being bought to match the home decor. The monthly search volume on Google is 34,000 and Amazon is 26,768. Check out this DIY Lego clock.

Fabric Wall Art

Fabric wall art falls under the broad category of wall decals, which has a monthly search volume of 42,000. If you wish to specialize in Fabric wall art, the search volume is 1200 on Google and 70 on Amazon.


The doormat market is going well. On Amazon, the monthly search volume is 2,000, and Google comes in at 3,400 searches monthly. If you’re good at making things, this Braided doormat could be a winner

Seashell Mirror

Bathroom mirrors are functional items that people will always buy. The monthly search volume is 57,900. This lovely seashell mirror could be one of the most profitable crafts, as some of these go for 4-figures on Wayfair.

Real Seashell Mirror

If you live by the beach, your supply is basically free. You just need to sell 6 of these per month to have a 6-figure business.

Pillow Cover

Although people are searching for pillow covers on Amazon – 36,000 – and Google – 19,000-, the trick to selling them is specializing to a specific audience. The design of a child’s pillow cover is different from that of an adult athlete. You don’t even need to know how to sew to make one.

Mason Jar Vase

Creating interesting pieces for a house is one way to go. Decorated mason jars are great for displaying pottery and plants, especially those that can be used as vases. You can also sell some old unique pieces for a lot.

Hammock Chair

Hammock chairs are used in porches, backyards, and even inside the house. The search volume on Amazon is 18,000, and Google is 45,000. This article is a great resource for making Hammock Chairs.

Wood Print

I am not an artist, but I appreciate the art of printing out images on wood. Woodworking and artwork prints fascinate me.

There are people looking to transfer their wedding photos into wood or get a landscape painted on wood in their living room. With wood print, print-on-demand is most profitable because you are printing based on order.

The search volume on Google is 2,100, and Amazon clocked in at 50 this past month.

9 Handmade Jewelry Examples

Selling DIY Jewelry

Selling homemade jewelry at craft fairs is one of the most common ways to make sales and cash in. But now, people are piling up to purchase homemade jewelry online because of the convenience. In fact, the ecommerce jewelry market grows at a 6% rate yearly, with the US in second place at $2.7 billion in revenue.

To leverage this, you do have to realize that – like every other creative business – making jewelry takes a lot of time, creativity, skill, and effort. Ideas may not come every time, and if you are looking to sell different designs, this might pose an issue for you.

People typically don’t search specific keywords when jewelry shopping. They tend to use general keywords and look for something they like within that category.

Moving on to the best DIY jewelry you should sell in 2023, we have:

Locket Necklace

Lockets have been around for a long time, and people still buy them. The monthly search volume on Google is 21,000, and on Amazon, it is 3,100.

If I were to sell these, I would learn how to make a vintage locket first.


Wearing cufflinks has always been a fashion thing for men because of the limited number of jewelry we can wear in a formal setting; women are also catching on to this piece. 35K people on Google are searching for how to wear them. 8.8K people are searching on Amazon looking to buy them.

Check out how to make your own cufflinks.

Buddha bracelets are now used for more than what they were originally made for – prayer. They have become fashion jewelry for men (and some women) who sell. I love them – they are simple and look good.

For every product idea, search volume is important before you go on to make it. For this product, it is 4,400 on Google. It’s clear that it’s being bought – the Amazon search volume is 350.

Friendship Bracelets

Friendship bracelets are easy to make and are great if you have failed to learn how to crochet or knit.

They are a cheaper option to gold chains, so people buy them. You can combine these with Buddha bracelets or sell them as a standalone.

Double Pearl Earrings

This is one product that people buy these days, though it’s not as popular as it used to be, with 820 in monthly search volume. You can make them with pearls or any gem you can afford to start with.

Beaded Tassel Necklace

9 Paper Craft Ideas

Selling Stationery Crafts Online

The ease of technology has made us prefer eCards, online notes, word documents, and emails over physical stationery. Add that to the ‘print less’ movement. Sales are going down for stationery products.

Nevertheless, ‘paper and pencil’ crafts still sell, especially in the holiday seasons, as a result of the personalized feel they bring. Printables also have some of the cheapest crafts to make.

Right now, stationary that people buy often include:

The CEO from CustomSticker.com shows that custom stickers become more popular, especially die-cut stickers and kiss-cut stickers. And people love stickers and stick them anywhere.

        On Amazon, notebook itself has 158,000 searches monthly, but that could include the laptop.

          Desk Pad

          A desk pad is used to protect your desk. Some people also use them to beautify their desks. There is a good enough search volume of 22K on Amazon and 10K on Google. You can choose the materials you would use; leather is more expensive, and colored wallpaper is a cheaper choice.

            Greeting Cards

                Selling DIY Apparel

                One basic need of humans is clothing, and people obsess over clothes a lot. That aside, this industry is quite huge; the market is expected to grow to $122.98 billion in 2023.

                To succeed, you have to hone in your niche and be very creative and informed. The good thing is that you can cross-sell – bow ties and suspenders, for example – or start with a pouch and sell higher with a tote bag.
