Do you want to make a little extra money by just making crafts? Well, I have a bunch of quick, easy ideas to get your business started. All of these projects are cute and fun to make and will sell in no time. Some of these items are even bestsellers on websites like Etsy and eBay. Everyone loves to buy stuff that is cheap and handmade so you’re in luck. Some examples are DIY pens, pop-sockets, headbands, phone cases, and more. Many of these items take under an hour and cost less than five dollars. My friend and I created a bunch of confetti pencils and got all of the materials from the dollar store. Last summer we made a total of 200$ from all of the crafts we sold which I thought was amazing. You would be so surprised if you knew how many cool crafts are waiting out there for you to make.
