EASY CRAFTS TO MAKE AND SELL

I'm going to share a post today about some of the crafts that I most frequently make to sell.  After making them, I sell them in my craft booth, Booth #555 at the Morehead Peddlers Mall.

And here is just a few that are super easy and fun!

Snowman Clothespin Magnets:
These adorable snowmen magnets are a super fun craft.  They cost only a few dollars to make a package of 50.  And as you see I price these for $1.00 each in my booth.  You can also use them as bag clips for potato chips and such.

Click Here for the full instruction list to make these.






Snowman & Pumpkin Wooden Spoons:

These are super fun and easy to make also.  And on the cheap side but you can sell them for around $2.00 and still make a profit locally.  If selling online I know you have to raise it to cover various costs.  But local sales and craft booths these can be huge money makers.  Just keep enough in stock and ready to go.

GRUNGY & GRUBBY TEA LIGHTS:

These are a messy craft but fun! Who doesn't love having primitive looking candles sitting around? I think they look so country, I just love them!
You can grab the plain, white candles at your local Big Lots store for cheap!

AND BATTERY OPERATED ONES AS WELL!:





banner And finally, one of my all time favorite crafts,
PRIMITIVE "KITCHEN THEMED" WOODEN SPOONS:

These are super fun and look adorable in any country kitchen. I have crocks and jars full of these in my home. And I'm adding to them every time I make a batch!

HALLOWEEN GHOST CANDLES

Easy Halloween Ghost Candles 
Here's my little ghost candles.


 I bought a pack of 24 votive sized candles at the local Big Lots for around $6.00. And that's not really a high price for so many.

 But when I buy them to make and resale them at my booth, every penny counts.

I just used some black craft paint, painted on the faces.


 And then dipped them down into a white, melted candle.  The quick dip seals up the faces and protects them from scratches.

To let them dry, just sit them down on a sheet of wax paper.
And once they are dried, here is how I package them up.
I just put each one down into a little baggie of the appropriate size and staple a piece of brown paper on the top.
Then I add a price tag that I print out of those little sheets of return address labels.

Here's a pic with some pumpkin face ones too.

Sometimes I add a little tag that says Happy Halloween or so with a little piece of homespun fabric.
But I couldn't remember where I got those little tags, so I decided to leave them off the ones I was going to sell, and only use them on the ones I give away. Just in case they were copyrighted tags.


Great for your Halloween table displays!


(Note: these are not just painted on faces, they are set in wax)
