If you enjoy making crafts you can get paid for your talents and make money at your hobby. There are many ways to do this, you can sell your crafts online, write about your craft making and submit tutorials, or put together craft kits.
Selling Your Crafts Online
If you have a crafting hobby this may be the best way to earn money. Chances are you are already experienced and an expert at your craft. You can sign up to sell your masterpieces online and set your own prices. The best places to sell your crafts online are ArtFire.com, Etsy.com, eBay.com, or Mintd.com.
Writing Tutorials About Your Craft
Many crafting websites will pay you to write about making your crafts. Simply write specific instructions including the materials needed, skills needed, time it takes to make the craft and a step by step instructions. Several websites pay top dollar for these crafting tutorials including youcanmakethis.com, betterbudgetting.com, craftbits.com, or submit your tutorial here at eHow.com.
Making and Selling Crafts Back to the Company
There are a few legitimate companies that sell you kits and then purchase the finished craft products back when they are complete. There is some upfront cost to purchasing the kits, so be careful to only do this if you can afford the kits and are certain the company is legitimate. The companies I personally know to be legitimate include the desciplescross.com and magicalgiftdollhouses.com.
