If you are serious about selling crafts as a business, then you have to keep competitive with your pricing, come up with something a little more unique, and yet make money. Wearable crafts are always in.
One of the best kept secrets is the local dollar store. If you have ever taken a trip down all the aisles you would see just how creative you could get with your craft projects. You are not likely to build the entire project from the dollar store but simply replacing some of the supplies from there will help to keep more money in your pocket for your craft business. We all want to make crafts for cash, and unless you are donating these crafts to charity, you need to watch your bottom line.
It is important to keep your receipts and notes on just how long it takes to create this craft and how much in supplies.
The below video shows you how to make a beautiful glass pendant. She even mentions the dollar store. I took a look at my local store and found lots of glass stones as in the video, and I also found in the jewelry aisle some great chains and cords for hanging your pendant on. Many times you will find a cheap looking necklace pendant but if you look closer you will see the cord is leather or a good quality chain with a clasp already. Just take off the old bit and you are now ready to add your treasures!
Gorgeous Glass pendants
These would be perfect if you could hang them on some sort of display stand rather than have them laying flat on your table. You can get all kids of stands, but another way is to get black velvet and line a tray with it and then angle the tray, or invest in some necklace display cases online such as with Amazon.
If you get creative you will find that almost all the items (except for the strong glue) can be found at the dollar store. I have even seen the jewelry wire there. You can get the chains or cords by simply purchasing a necklace and discarding the old decoration on it.
These are beautiful. You could even get the nice papers from the dollar store for your picture. If you are really creative you could use your own paintings that you have photocopied and shrank to size. This would work as well and would be a great way to show case your own art. Either way these quality glass pendants can be created using Dollar store crafting!
