I know most of us (or some of us, if you really don’t believe in the virus) cannot go out and enjoy going to the farmer’s market or to your local fair, where we can usually see and find different types of useful and/or interesting crafts made by wickedly talented people who are just so hardcore into this stuff, like T-shirt printing, making personalized mugs or cards, keychains and, one of the hottest (and definitely most sold-out item) is washable masks with different prints and design. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find and order them online. Here are some of the top 20 crafts to make and sell that people are still buying in 2021.

Cricut Crafts

Cricut items are all about personalization, and there’s a huge variety for sale on Facebook, Instagram, and most famously, Etsy. You can personalize anything from T-shirts to mugs and sell it for way more than you thought before. And because of the pandemic, many people tend to go online and search for these items so if you’re ready, go ahead and make the next big thing. I myself am contemplating on getting a Cricut machine myself and use it to make personalized cards because we’ve been making a ton of those nowadays. Here are some other ideas where you can use Cricut for:

  • Cute, personalized masks
  • Monogrammed note cards
  • Personalized water bottles
  • Birthday party decorations
  • Intricate greeting cards

Handmade Notecards 

If you’re talented enough and have a steady hand, handwritten notecards like these are always a bestseller, especially with people who love showing their gratitude the old-school way. I personally love giving handwritten notes like these to friends and families.

Wooden Project- Boxes, Nameplates, Etc.

Now this kind of crafting requires some knowledge (or a lot of knowledge) of carpentry. But, the final product is just one-of-a-kind and can be very useful in many ways. Here are some examples:

Fabric And Leather Earrings

Always is a hit with women and the LGBTQ community.

Personalized Teacher Name Sign

This is an excellent teacher gift to put on the market. It's an excellent back-to-school, Christmas, or teacher appreciation week present. What instructor wouldn't be ecstatic to get something like this? This may also be a nice gift for school counselors and principals.

DIY Coasters

These DIY geometric coasters are eye-catching and may be used alone or fitted together to make a patterned serving trivet. It's the cutest (and simplest) puzzle you've ever seen! Coasters can be boring, but these will give a splash of color to your table, and I can assure you that after you've made one, you'll want to make more!

Personalized/ Customized Mugs

In the same line with personalized T-shirts, this item has been quite a staple in every home and I am guilty of gifting and receiving more than one of them. They are just a very good gift idea and inexpensive too.

Handmade Dog Collars

When the pandemic started last year, most of us had our pets for companions. They’re not just pets for us, we already see them as part of the family. Every year, people will spend a lot of money on their dogs. Profit from this by creating and selling some of these collars to them.

Letters/ Alphabet Crafts For Wall Decor/ Dresser Decor

Popular mostly with Millenials and with Youtube creators. I personally am in love with them and would love to decorate my room with one (or two).

Mason Jars

Loved by shop owners and also with makeup and skincare enthusiasts that just want that elegance in their vanity closet or table, these lovely mason jars are some of the must-haves that weren’t deterred by the pandemic.

DIY Rustic Wooden Tealight Holders

This is a good way to re-purpose old wood that you’re not using anymore. Also, a great way to bring the room together, and having them in any room makes anyone feel more calm and relaxed, especially after a noisy or busy day.

Handmade Bath Bombs

A great gift for everyone, whatever age or gender. Especially for our dear mommas who just at the end of the day, relax in the tub with a good book and a glass of wine. If reasonably priced, it usually goes from $3-5 each, making them sell out so fast.

Personalized Keychain

Whether it’s embroidered, printed, or quilted, you can’t deny the uniqueness of this item, and makes you wonder how much time and dedication the person who made it put into these lovely items. You could always count on people to buy them at crafts fair and give them as gifts to friends and families, especially to that person they know that usually misplaces or loses their keys. And hey, it’s fashionable too so it would definitely appeal to teenagers and Millenials.

Christmas Wreaths

The holidays are coming fast, and these handmade wreaths would sell so fast in your online store, you might have a hard time keeping up with the demand. I also found that people tend to buy a new one every year because they have misplaced the previous one from last year or it was just not in good condition anymore so this is definitely a good one to sell at the crafts fair.

Christmas Gnomes

Together with your wreaths, these gnomes are not just for your garden. They can also be part of your holiday centerpiece or placed by the fireplace, next to the stockings. And, they’re lightweight so they’re easy to ship anywhere. A lovely (and cute) gift for everyone. You might make a lot more sales if you sell them on Amazon Handmade or Etsy than you would if you sold them on your own.

Embroidered Hand Towels

This would every home more lovely and, well, homey. I love seeing this in my friends’ houses. I’m sure anyone who’s staying more at home now would love to have one of these in their home, especially if they have quite a big family and wouldn’t want to share towels with anybody, this would be a lovely gift idea and definitely would sell out in any crafts fair or online store.

Garden Signs/ Markers

This one, if printed and placed well, can be quite charming, scary, or downright

hilarious. The pandemic made a lot of people start gardening again so, together with your usual garden gnomes, you can put out a sign that says “Hanging in there” to “Literally dying” for those plants that you keep watering but you know for sure are close to dying. Or the sign that says “My Grandma was buried here” next to a gravestone that says “The Old Taylor”😂.

Vintage Block Letters

A part of many people’s childhood, and now yours can be part of a childs’ too. Do any of you have any memories of these from your childhood? I certainly do. You may now use them to decorate a child's room or to spell out the name of your family on a shelf. It's adorable. Leave them as is or touch them up with a little paint.

Specialty Handmade Soaps

Always a best-seller, especially with women or metrosexuals who just love to smell flowers or whatever favorite scent you have crafted for them. These small soaps seem to be the quickest to sell out if you have a local boutique shop where you can set up a display.

Choose from some of the most popular scents or create your own!

Wooden Verse Of The Day

This is a brilliant idea. It's basically a painted wooden board with a single clip on it. You can always give it a name or a phrase like "Bible Verse of the Day" or something similar to personalize it. I adore how simple this is, yet how lovely it is, and how perfect it would be as a gift for a religious person in your life.
