Any suggestion for a cute handmade item to sell?

I am currently selling hand made items online. Most of them are made of yarns (Amigurumi, bookmarks and friendship bracelets). I also have charm keychains. I just want to get more ideas on what other items I could add to this lists so that customers have more choices. Any item in mind that I can learn to do and try selling?

When I heard your captions the first thing came up to my mind is by making a wedding souvenirs. It is very easy to make and very easy to sell online. You can also add wedding invitations for the wedding souvenirs as a bundle service. You can create money from it. Watch the tutorials online like DIY videos so that it could help you give many ideas about this business.

I second the motion. When I read your question, the first thing that came to my mind are wedding souvenirs and wedding invitations. But aside from wedding souvenirs you can also make birthday souvenirs and cards. They are easily learned and lot of tutorials in YouTube as mentioned by @mark8625. I'm currently watching videos about accessory making such as earrings. Maybe you can add this if you like. Best of luck with your crafts.

Yeah that was great idea. Birthday souvenirs is very much good idea when it comes to online business.

I think by doing this, you should also need to coordinate with the wedding organizer to expand your business. I had a friend and her business is Photobooth, and she gets more clients by keeps interacts during the events, She gets a lot of clients and called her once there are a wedding and need for her photo booth.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mark8625
Yeah that is right. You need to coordinate with them like what kind of designs they want you to do. Of course you need to know the time frame of the wedding so that you have enough time to prepare everything and the finish product be on time.

Me too. Its easy to make souvenirs. You can even use old candles and reproduce it and just put some designs too. You can watch it in you tube. You can also use polymer clay for keychains. My classmate creates keychains for her souvenirs out of polymer clay.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

mark8625
Yeah It is easy to do. I love candles the fragrance candle I mean. I love the scent of it. This is good business ideas also.

I would also suggest that you sell bunny dolls. Also, cute do dolls would be a catch in the market. You can also be creative and look for the cute bird dolls which can also come in the form of key chains.

Keychains are a great idea but it's not exactly the easiest thing to do if you truly want to create some cool designs for the keychains. You could also try to create some great looking bracelets which are extremely popular when people are on holiday or if they want to gift something to their friends/family.

Bracelets are nice. Couple ones for people that may wish to buy the ones that signify their love bonds. Family for families and even you can do for corporates as long as your quality is awesome.

Nice idea. Bracelets are cool. Put different designs and for sure it will be successful one.

Couple bracelets are really I'm the market today. The younger generation always go for couple shirts, caps, ahoes and anything that is a couple thing. Bracelet is a good idea. Maybe you can add necklaces. I've seen people that has necklaces with names.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Keychains and bracelet are usually the things person always buy, but I think not online she needs the physical store for this. Travelers usually buy these things as a souvenir from the place they had been. There's a good market for this specially if your store is in the tourist destination place.

I love the idea of amigurumi, I think there's lots of potential there - I'd probably just branch out and do lots of different varieties of those. Different cartoon or anime characters give you loads of options, and I think they're also popular with collectors too.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Youngshark
Haha. You definitely do love your cartoons. I also think that it would be viable if one can manage to effectively market to the kids. From simple to complex designs with a majority of the popular cartoon characters.

How about Anime souvenir items those which are made of wood that can be displayed in rooms. I'm looking for anime logos of titles that I like and I can't find one that can be hung or fixed in the walls of my room.

I think what you should be doing is making use of the sites like etsy. And find out what sells there. And also take a look at what are some of the things that sell on the zazzle. And that way you can learn what things are demand and what are some of the things that you have to regularly produce. That seems to be one way to deal with the items in demand and what could sell to the potential customers.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Doing some research is definitely helpful - it gives you a feel for what’s selling well and also is helpful with determining price points for what you’re selling too!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Zazzle is one more place to do some research. You can learn from what other people are buying. And that can be a good start for the handmade selling business. Most of the people learn through the experience of sales from other people. And same can be said for selling on zazzle, ebay and etsy.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Alymae
Thank you for sharing this. I am also looking for sites that tells you what is in the market. Market research should be done first before venturing into the business. I also think it is best to learn from the experience of others. It can be a source of inspiration and a good lesson for everyone.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Yes zazzle seems to be a good place to start the market research. There are lot of small guides on what works and what does not work. I have tried some of the art on that note and it did work if you ask me. I have had some small dollar sales on the zazzle. And they can be a good start during the seasonal events.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

That is also what I want to know, which item sells or even the characters to which I can base my product. I am currently following Etsy while I sell using Facebook. I still have to take advantage of Zazzle. Will definitely check it for more information and idea.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ajahcuizon
I would suggest wallet and coin purse. They could be made out of yarn with different designs to choose from. You could also sell a set bundle of which they could make their own wallet. You can create a wide range of designs and quality so that you will be able to sell more of your creations. You van put some gems, pearls or jewels to make them more attractive and cute.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Many tourist spots I have been have souvenir stores that usually sells coin purse. These purse are made of local materials that are found in the place. I find your suggestion suitable answer for the thread. We can make it extra special by adding cute decoration too.

Soapstone items are very good. They are carved from soft stone and are very good. They sell easily too. Try them out. The carvings look very beautiful

Mood stones are still in demand on the market , it's either embedded on bracelets or necklaces. Wood rings also popular nowadays its natural, beautiful, and cheaper than other types of rings. I think this is a hit specially for youths.

Wow, this looks really amazing! I love rings or any kinds of accessories and I can say that this one is indeed beautiful. The design looks simple yet pleasingly graceful to the eyes.

As my input, making Mason Jar Light Candle is also a good business. This is made of mason jars and glass stones from the dollar store so basically the materials are inexpensive. However, a lot of patience is needed in making this since it takes long to letting the glue dry. Just be mindful that you can't use a glue gun, as candles melt the glue right off! It is varieties of colors too like blue, green, red, silver, gold, clear glass and so on. Hope this helps!



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Oooh, that's really pretty - love the idea of one of these! I think they're more unique than a lot of rings on the market and that can be a big selling point.

You can make your own design for retractable ID holders, and it will be really usable and you can put movie or TV characters or cute designs based on their profession, or even personalized.

Potholders, covers for decorative throw pillows, hair accessories, belts. Ran out of ideas.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Pillow covers is one of the hidden niche that has a really good conversion. I have seen some of the really good market for the same. I can tell you that some of the really good items on sale on zazzle are pillow covers. And for some reason it's one of the good item that people get started with in this niche. I wonder considering low profit here what could be the reason.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

cmoneyspinner
I did not realize pillow covers sold well on Zazzle. I've been a Zazzle associate for a long time and have never made a sale. I blame myself because I don't aggressively market Zazzle products. I'm usually sharing affiliate links from Amazon or ShareASale or using VigLink to share links from a variety of merchants. Me personally? I just happen to love throw pillows. That's why I suggested it. Any suggestion for a cute handmade item to sell?

I also suggest this. And in addition, you can also do some accessories made from clay. Or make some wallets, baby socks or bonets, or some other stuff through crochet.

Simple things but can generate good amount of money. You should need proper marketing to sell it.

You can try ebay, etsy, zazzle even facebook. I have a friend who sells handmade jewelry through facebook. I also have friends who are selling handmade items on zazzle and etsy. The sales depend on how well you market your products. You will have to give a searchable title and description with keywords so that your products are easily found.

String bags are easy to made. You just need a sewing machine in making it. You can make string bags with shirts or old clothes. Soaps and candles are my second suggestion it is also easy to made. You can customize the scent of the soap and candles.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

lei08pineda
Good suggestions. Sling bags are good product to sell. I think it will also be wise if they also offer customized bags. And as for the candle, it will be helpful also if it will be mold into something cute molder.

I love this topic because I like crafting, DIY's and cute handmades stuff. I suggest that if you want to make cute handmades, why not try making stuff that you could also make a profit out of it? Cute giveaways for baptism, birthdays and weddings are so in demand today. Quilling is also cute and colorful. You could make pen holder out of it as well as art works.
Also I suggest making cute accessories like dangling earings, cute necklaces.

How about handcrafted wooden or metallic bracelets and other jewelry with anime designs and or engravings. A lot of anime fans would love that.

I have seen that items for kids are searched on the market, you can make toys, or personalized shirts for the whole family, wallets for husbands with an inscription "for my loved husband", etc.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

ballyhara
Oh I really like these idea. Maybe doing items for kids and the family according to the season, like 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas. I've seen this Instagram account of a lady who makes t-shirts, tutus, bodies, hair laces and ties, matching mommy-daughter pieces, and they're super cute. Also, people buy her items a lot, you even have to be on waiting list.

Anything made of wood right now is selling like hotcakes. From wooden watches to wooden dolls, wood is trending. I guess people are buying into the save the environment movement going around. I guess small wooden figurines and keychains can be a worthwhile item to sell. Most of the woodworking could be learned through Youtube. Compared to other DIY projects out there, this can be a worthwhile skill to learn as you could venture into product design. Wooden wallets. Wooden phone cases. The possibilities are endless.

You mentioned that you work with yarn, so you could try making tiny plush toys based on popular culture. Maybe you could make cute little handmade yarn dolls based off of things like super heroes or video game characters.

For example, the game Stardew Valley is really popular right now, and I’ve seen several posts online of people who’ve made tiny plush figures of these characters called Junimos. Whenever someone makes such a post, there are always multiple comments under it asking if they’re willing to make more and sell them, because several people would love to buy them.

Plushies made out of yarn are also part of items that I sell. Here are just some of the characters I made. It is good to know what other characters will sell because most of the time I am stuck with the characters that my kids are familiar with. Looking for more product options since this one takes time to make and it is hard to accept bulk orders =(



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

They are so cute, this one is great for all ages specially kids on their pre-teens. I suggest you search for suppliers or makers for bulk orders so that you can accommodate your clients.

Oh my you are awesome! They are all pretty! I used to do crocheting but mini side bags for me. And it never last for a day, my teachers always requesting if they can have it and I don't have a choice ahaha. To see your design wear on and appreciated, I guess thats fine with me for them to have it as a gift. And yeah I guess you can try to Disney princesses collection, Im sure all daughters will love it. You can set that as individual or all the princesses are all together its up to you. Love your design I do.

Wow. So cute. Honestly, this is the first time I saw this kind of tiny toys that made up of yarns, I think its because I'm not a collector of toys. Well, I don't have any small toys even key chains or whatever it is, absolutely I don't have anything cute in here. But I really appreciate your artwork when it comes to that kind of thing. Keep it up!

I think a customized t-shirt. It's a little hard to do and make the same design but this one I know will become your best seller. You don't need the printer, transfer paper, just paint and brush. Better not to do a hard design and just more on letters and numbers only for beginner.

I suggest making accessories like necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, or even anklets. You can also include some hair accessories like small and big hair clips, bows, hair comb pins, hair bands, elastic bands, head bands, pearls, hair flowers, hair pins, hats, scarfs, tiara, hair jewelry, hair rings, beanies, hair feathers, ribbon hair ties, hair coils or even wreaths.

These accessories listed above are making such a nice profit in the market nowadays and really in demand especially for the youngsters and women.

The sky is the limit with this. The list is long. You could make jewellery, bangles, earings, bracelets e.t.c. I think many people make handmade items this is not a new phenomena, the trick is how you market them.I would market them as recycled , environmentally friendly. These kind of phrases drive sales, people want to feel like they are preserving the environment. I know of someone making handbags from recycled plastic and there business is thriving.

I think Key chains could be one good pic. Key chains made of foods would be my top pick. Wood looks cool and it's kinda unique. I'm sure you can get lots of buyer. Their is a lot of wood key chain out their so try some design that are very unique. You can try to post the design for you to know that can attract your customers attention.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I agree with key chains. I used to buy this everytime I travel and as a gift to my friends. This one is cheaper and a good souvenir from the place you have been.

Hey good idea. I sold keychains when I was at school, and it worked out perfect. I learned how to do a very unique way of lacing, and I used shoe laces. Well, that was back in the 90's, but it doesn't mean it can't work out nowadays.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I can suggest also to use some recyclable materials, A lot of environmentalists love to see this probably will buy the products. Accessories made from recyclable materials specially handmade will surely hit the market.

Try hair accessories and jewelries like bracelets,etc.

What about a watch and jewelry stand or hanger. I saw one made by a metal artisan which looks like a tree with just a few leaves which serves as stoppers, sadly I didn't have the chance to go back and buy it. It would look good on top of my dresser to hang my watches and ring.

If you have painting skills, I believe it's one of the most selling crafts which is growing on daily basis. I think that people are getting more comfortable and interested in buying painted arts recently. At least if not any other person, I'm one of such person's who is so much in love with painting. I bought this one last month for $30. It's among my latest collections when it comes to painted arts. Any suggestion for a cute handmade item to sell?

I think the best thing for you would be to specifically look at websites that focus on handmade items and selling. Just browse through what sort of things others are making from yarn itself and maybe you will get inspired?

Just recently I saw one of those yarn made bowls at my friend's house and I have to admit, it looked really amazing. Perhaps learn to do that Any suggestion for a cute handmade item to sell?

I just saw this on Facebook and it may be perfect for you since yarn is the main material. They just put glue on the yarn and uses a balloon as base to create the "ball". I find it creative and can imagine myself buying this if ever I see one. Can be placed inside the bedroom or even in the living room. Here's the link so you can see it.

I can suggest you to made lovely handcrafts such as explosion box, infinity box, flower arrangements etc. A variety of that kind of item will definitely make you eaen especially in Valentine's Day because a lot of men even women would like to give it into their loved ones. Learning it is also quite easy, a lot of videos is posted in Youtube for you to understand throughly of how to make it and what is tge use of it. I've encountered a lot of person who really earn big amount of money by just doing it. That's all I hope that I've help you.

Before you start selling l suggest that you conduct a survey in your area to know what they want so you have a clue on what to sell. If you dont prefer doing a survey you can also research on what is cute trend item today. For me the cutest item to sell is a chibi keychain and I think many children would love to have one.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

edencaga
I think you can sell also cellphone cases or laptop cases. I have seen a lot in online shops about cute phone cases and also with keychain. My former classmate creates that kind of craft where in she uses silicon with glitters as part of design in case and those cute small charms and anime. She just made a lot of such a cute designs.

I think that is a good idea. Especially when you know how to customize it, you can really get people to buy your product. Since most of the people are now down to technologies, selling something that you can incorporate with phones and tablets culd be a thing. It can also be a good source of income especially of youe designs are eye catching and unique.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

edencaga
Yes you are right especially girls. They tend to be more girly when it comes to that kind of stuffs. The designs must be trend so that young generations will entice to buy the product you made. Cups and buttons can be also good especially when you know how to design most especially in Photoshop but it doesn't involve craft so it's more likely graphic designing tho.

Where I live there are people who use tiny plastic beads to make beautiful multi-colored bracelets, belts and even purses. If one can learn the skill (it's not that hard), these handmade products can make you plenty of money as there are many people who buy these products regularly.

However, since many people prefer to make bracelets, beautiful belts or purses made from these tiny beads would be a better choice (because of the competition). But you don't have to sell these items online. Look around your hometown if no such items are being sold then be the first to make and sell them. It could make you a lot of money before others start getting into the business.

Examples of wire crafts

Disclaimer on the link, I just googled it. I think you should definitely try Wire Crafting. Bend wires into simple name rings or a more complicated Sea horse pendant. Add some crystals or stones and you have yourself jewelries. I have tried some of them before and they were really fun to learn. There are also a lot of DIY guides on YouTube. If you are already comfortable with the craft you could get spontaneous and creative. The wires themselves are not much pricey you could practice all you want.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Tried playing with wires as well. I have included it in the items to sell last year. Wire bookmarks to be exact and they really sell well. However, the quality of the wires I recently got from my supplier are softer. It easily bends and ruin the shape of the bookmark. You have any suggestion on the thickness and type of wire you are using before?

Cellphone accessories are now in-demand in the market. making cute stickers to put in their cellphones I think is best. Shining shimmering and matte stickers are the choices for young ladies looks for their accessories that may fit their character. Basketball-inspired for the cool guys in the school also needs to be enhanced. We have to get a new idea in this new generation to have a passive income in doing new business.

I personally do some home decor stuff, such as cushions, drapes or curtains. But I do it on a sewing machine. Also, I make toys for children and Halloween costumes. I started doing it for myself, but later my friends asked to make something for their houses or children. Later my friends brought their friends. Now, I take payment for some orders, especially, during the Halloween preparation. Everyone wants a costume, and sometimes I have to do it late at night. Now, I am saving up some money to get a good overlocker machine. For those who don’t know, there is a big difference between an overlocker and a regular sewing machine. An overlocker sewing machine allows to do certain things with fabrics way faster.

After I learned how to use an overlocker, I understand that it was a good investment! I also do some DIY decor, and with an overlocker, I can create more things way faster.

Hello. I just love all sorts of hand-made stuff. Moreover, this is a trend in the modern world. There are even shops on Instagram where you can buy hand-painted clothes, for example. Cool, isn't it? By the way, I wanted to ask you. Perhaps you have come across this https://aplusessay.com/do-my-business-assignment.html service? How do you like their speed of service performance? Also, tell me about the cost. Thank you all in advance.

If it is made of yarns, I suggest making a crocheted colorful pot holder. You can also make a small pouch for a makeup or vanity kit, and a cardholder/case. They are not just beautiful but very useful for us. I am sure that many people will be attracted to buy your items.

I'm thinking of pouches too or coin purses. Maybe you can incorporate on them the cute designs that you already have with your plushies with lesser details I think. I can really tell that those plushies were meticulously made and took time. They are really cute for all ages.

I used to do crocheted as well before. But as I am not very skilled at it, it took me weeks to finish a single project. So I stopped. But as I have many yarns left, I thought of another projects I could do with them. Then I learned how to make dream catchers! I made use of yarns that I have left and wove them into dream catchers, big and small. It was easy to do and beginners just have to know how to tie in one direction. From that, you could experiment on your whim. I had a great results. I sold a lot.
