Homemade goods are big business. According to one report, this sector is worth a staggering $752 billion and is experiencing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 8.5%. So clearly, there’s a large market for quality homemade items. If you’re a handy DIY crafter, then you’ll have a terrific opportunity to sell your products online and generate a handsome side income.

In this post, we’ll run through a bunch of different popular products that might form the basis for your next business. Perfect your craft today, read up on marketing, and begin your journey towards building a rainy day fund by doing something that you enjoy. 


Many people love wearing jewelry. And to them, the more unique the item is, the better. Jewelry such as earrings and necklaces are two of the biggest sellers on Etsy, which proves how popular these items are. Since the competition for customers is high, it’s recommended to look at making products that naturally fit your skills — the quality will be better — and which are in demand. Trending designs, for example, can form a solid basis for your fledgling venture, since you’ll know there’s a market for it. 


Candles are charming, romantic, atmospheric, and aromatic — and yet, despite all these qualities, they’re remarkably easy to make. Armed with some wax, a great jar, and some useful tips, you can be up and running with your candle enterprise extremely quickly. Of course, to sell your products, you’ll need to ensure that they smell good (the sky’s the limit for scents you can incorporate) and that you have a professional-looking label; there are printing websites that’ll allow you to print labels in line with your branding. Candles have been around for a long time, but, oddly, the market for candles is currently growing. They’ve proven to be extremely popular in the past couple of years, making now the perfect time to look at making yours available for sale.

T-Shirts and Other Clothing

Independent clothing producers have a clear advantage over big brands, and that is: that people who care about fashion want to have a unique look. There are multiple ways to make and sell t-shirts (and other clothing). You can use a print-on-demand service (a company prints your t-shirts when you receive an order), or you can invest in some equipment that allows you to add your own designs to blank t-shirts. If you’re naturally artistic, then this can be a great way to make extra money. 

Soaps and Bath Bombs

People have to buy soap regularly, and that’s a good thing for people who can produce quality soaps. If you can create a range of great-smelling soaps that cater to all tastes, then you should receive more than your fair share of orders! However, while it’s pretty straightforward to make soaps, they do require specialist equipment, so you’ll need to outlay some cash before you get started. Bath bombs are another related bathroom product that are easy to make once you have the right tools.
