1) Bath bombs
Bath bombs are in right now. Everyone just loves watching them fizz right before a soothing bath.
Bath bombs are quick and easy to make. But the real challenge, though, is how to make them unique and give them an irresistible branding. Make your bath bombs vibrant and aromatic, and they’ll sell like hotcakes in no time.
Candles are another no-brainer item that you can sell online. They’re decorative, useful pieces at home. Plus, they make great Christmas and birthday presents!
You can make candles in different sizes, shapes, colors, and aromas. You can even include actual leaves and petals in them for added aesthetic.
If you have a penchant for design, try your hand at designing and selling T-shirts. Got a sick artwork you think will look good as a T-shirt print? Get it in there.
But if you’re not much of an artist, you can simply print a nice catchphrase or slogan. You can be inspirational, funny, or explosive – the sky’s the limit!
Got a thing for cute little trinkets? Put it to good use, and start selling accessories online.
There are lots of DIY options to choose from. Think earrings, bangles, necklaces, and even keychains. Accessories are cute and cheap, so expect them to sell out fast. Use this to your advantage.
Homemade treats are easy to sell. They’re usually all-natural and preservative-free. So start scaling your brick-and-mortar cookie gig to an online shop.
There are many DIY treats to sell online: biscuits, chocolate, candies. If you already have a kicking recipe, all you’ll need to focus on is how to package your products. Make sure they catch your customers’ attention!
6) Your art
Many people buy art pieces that capture their emotions. Some buy art because they find the work relatable. If you’ve already made a following with your artworks, that’s more reason to start selling them.
If you’ve been making art and keeping it to yourself, then it’s time to start coming out of your shell. The catch is you get to earn money while doing so.
7) Digital products
The world is swiftly going digital. People will pay good money for digital copies of music, images, books, checklists, and many more. If you’re a writer or artist, you can create an e-book and sell it at your online store.
If you’re a budding musician, you can sell your music. The possibilities are endless. This guide will help you how to sell your digital products online.
8) Gift boxes
If you’re not so keen on creating actual products yourself, you can sell gift boxes. You won’t have to DIY your own products. You only need to DIY a gift box that contains several products.
Is Valentine’s season coming? Create a set with chocolates, stuffed teddy, and a bouquet of roses. For a baby-shower box, put in some baby clothes, blanket, and bottles.
DIY pillows are great items to sell. They’re easy to make and don’t need expensive materials. All you need are your sewing kit and some stuffing, and voilà, you get yourself a cuddly DIY product to earn profit from.
You can even upcycle your old clothes at home and use them as stuffing for your pillows. If your customers care for the earth, using sustainable materials is one way to get their attention.
You can DIY notebooks through recycled materials too. Choose recycled paper or cardboard for your products. You can sell them as is or hand-paint your notebooks with a cute image or calligraphy art.
Unleash your creativity
In the online world, the competition is tight. You have to step up your game if you want customers to buy your products. Now that you’re equipped with some of the best DIY ideas, it’s time to get your hands dirty. Good luck and happy selling!
