DIY Jewelry

One of the most profitable crafts to sell on Etsy is DIY jewelry. Most buyers love DIY jewelry for its sentimental significance from the artisan's design. Additionally, this kind of jewelry is preferred, as it is one-of-a-kind or custom-made. Supplies are inexpensive and easy to obtain. Most jewelry is created from high-quality metals such as precious gems and gold. Jewelry is always in demand, specially customized jewelry, regardless of the season. You can tap into this market by creating different types of jewelry such as fandom specific, zodiac signs, birthstone specials, fantasy, or timeless. The possibilities are endless!

Jewelry is a beautiful gift to give to your loved ones. People are always on the hunt for different and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Add your creativity to customize jewelry and attractive packaging to attract customers and capitalize on your sales.

Digital Prints

Gallery walls are always in style. From families to singles, everyone wants to freeze their memories and show them off in the form of innovative décor. Digital prints don’t have just to be pictures. They can be anything from patterns to typography and digital paintings. 

Going into this venture is relatively easy and doesn't require too much from you. Lots of people who already started with color graphics printing can explain how it works. All you have to do is get a printer, some ink and start printing out your desired design. You don't need special skills or equipment to get started with digital prints – just your own creativity!

Letting you customize anything without worrying about design errors makes digital prints appealing. You can also use digital prints as printed proof before committing to a higher-quality item.
The digital world is on the rise, with many people moving out of their family homes and wanting to experiment with art.  All you need is a good aesthetic sense to create abstract art that catches people’s eye. There is a need to express creativity and speak through art. Digital prints give you the freedom to do just that!

Tie-Dye Colorful DIY Bags

The entire world seems to be obsessed with the Tie-Dye trend. You can find everything from t-shirts to hoodies and pants available in this new fashionable style. Tie-Dye Colorful DIY Bags are on-trend. The beautiful mesh tie-dye colorful DIY bag can be used in many different ways, such as for grocery shopping or even visiting the beach and pairing it with your favorite tie-dye swimsuit!

You’ll require a rit dye, tray, a cotton mesh bag, squeeze bottles, latex gloves, a cooling rack, and rubber bands. Rinse all the water out to ensure no color gets a stain. Use rubber bands to create additional white spaces between each color. Marketing the tie-dye colorful DIY bag to the right target audience can bring in immense profit.

Pegboards: Color Wheel Style

Something that looks aesthetically pleasing and beautiful on the walls is pegboards. Even better are pegboards in color wheel style. A pegboard is used to give the circular-shaped background, which adds a chic touch. Adding it to your wall on top of your desk will spruce up your study or office area.

Creating color wheel style pegboards entails a round pegboard, acrylic paints, sealant, washy tape, and paintbrushes. It’s super easy to customize this DIY pegboard into any color you desire. Each section should be consistent in size; hence use a measuring tape or scale to check. Cute DIY containers are in demand during back-to-school season as everyone wants something chic and pretty. Color Wheel Style Pegboards are sure to sell out, giving your business a good profit.

DIY Vertical Garden

Gardening is becoming popular day by day. Many people are starting to collect plants, especially succulents, and create beautiful arrangements. Plants look stunning and create a picturesque sight in the garden, making it the perfect backdrop for photos. If you are looking to add dimension to your garden, then look no further than long narrow planters which are an ideal choice for creating long lines in the garden and cultivating succulents or small potted plants with long stems. These planters can be placed against walls or grouped together to create stunning patterns.

While ordinary gardens are common, have you heard of vertical gardens?  Vertical gardens use spare deck boards, drills, sander, screws, wood, paints, and brushes. You can fashion your DIY vertical garden to suit your tastes using these items. Get creative and experiment with different styles and plant arrangements. The best part is you can use up the spare wood in your garage if you have some. Insects and pests won’t get into your vertical garden and destroy it because it's raised above the ground. Vertical planters are trendy amongst gardeners, and you’ll surely get a lot of orders in no time.

Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, vertical gardens allow you to grow more plants in less space. Instead of letting gardeners' plants sprawl, vertical gardens will fit in smaller areas, including decks and patios. Buyers can also grow plants in non-traditional spaces, such as at walls and fences.

Gardeners can utilize their DIY skills to grow plants that improve the aesthetic appeal of their property. They can also use DIY crafts to create privacy and hide unattractive areas on their property. If buyers get worried about the efforts needed to maintain their vertical gardens, you can assure them there’s nothing to worry about. Vertical planters aren’t associated with problems like weeds and soil-borne diseases.

In addition, creating a vertical garden will increase sun exposure to your plants to thrive and produce. The airflow will also be better around the plants, which is great for their growth.
