Hand crafting items and tools is almost an essential part of being a pagan. The act of creating something by hand imbues that item with the energies of its creator, bringing it to life with its own energies. There is a ready market for handcrafted pagan items among those practicing pagans who believe in honouring the natural, and who are seeking ritual tools, robes, jewellery and other items that reflect and are made in accordance with their beliefs. The wide variety of pagan craft ideas that sell well might surprise the newcomer to the world of selling handcrafted designs and items, but should come as no surprise to any practitioner who has spent hours searching for handmade beeswax candles or a hand-carved storage box for ritual tools.

Pagan Prayer Beads and Rosaries
Prayer beads and rosaries play a part in the practice of many different religions, but their use among pagans is relatively recent, according to John Michael Greer, author of "Pagan Prayer Beads: Magic and Meditation with Pagan Rosaries". Despite their relative newness, pagan rosaries and strings of beads have become very popular, appearing with regularity at festival crafting booths.
Rather than selling handcrafted rosaries, however, why not put together kits with handmade beads, all natural string, findings and printed instructions to assemble a string of pagan beads. That allows individuals to create personalised prayer beads, investing them with their own creative energies.
Hand Sewn Storage Pouches and Bags
What to do with a collection of healing crystals or a set of hand-carved runes? From Tarot cards to personal totems, there are many pagan meditation tools that should be protected from outside influences--or simply kept safe in a beautiful bag sewn of natural fibres. Hand sewn embroidered bags and pouches are always good sellers at craft fairs and various online shops. Create a wide variety of sizes and styles, making sure that each varies from the rest in some basic way. If embroidery is your forte, offer custom embroidery designs at a premium price.
Handmade Ritual Candles
Candles are used in so many ways in pagan ritual that there's always a ready market for them. Ritual candles are always made with all natural ingredients, and should be dipped, rolled or moulded by hand. Add natural dyes or colourants to create ritual candles in colours for assorted rituals, and package them appropriately.
They can be sold individually or as multiples, but a little creative packaging will make handmade ritual candles even more saleable. As an example, put together a "Ritual Housewarming Pack" that includes white candles for purification, a purple candle to ward off negative energies and a green candle to consecrate the new home and prepare it to welcome prosperity, peace and contentment.
