There are lots of ways to make money online and elsewhere, but many of them are boring, tedious, or a waste of time. Why not spend your time doing something you enjoy? You can do that by selling crafts online. If you’re an artistic individual that enjoys making crafts, learn how to turn around and sell them.

Greeting Cards

Greeting cards seem like they will disappear because of the internet, but people still use them widely. They have sentimental value. If you are artistic as a painter, drawer, etc. you can create beautiful pieces and sell greeting cards. Make designs that are attractive and unique and that will bring in more buyers.


Yarn is popular. People knit with it, crochet with it, and make lots of different products like afghans, sweaters, hats, scarves, shawls, etc. If you love to knit and crochet and you’re good at it, you can sell the products you make for a premium online. Sell your product through or eBay. You can do the same with greeting cards that we discussed above.


This is a broad term. There are so many different types of jewelry that can be made. Find a process you enjoy and make your own beautiful creations. Be sure to let your friends know what you’re up to on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. They will help you get the word out about your jewelry and bring in more buyers.

This is just a tiny sample of different crafts that can be sold online. You can set up a storefront on eBay or, or you can set up your own site. Either way, learn how to effectively promote your store and product. Use sales, contents, and other promotional activities to get people interested and in the door, or in this case, on the site.
