When teenagers are looking for ways to make some extra cash, tapping into their creativity is not only lucrative, but also a great way to encourage their artistic skills. Help promote crafts made by teens through office, school or community sales to teach them how to market their products. Teens learn valuable lessons by selling their own creations such as money skills and important personal skills and gain healthy self-esteem.

Dyed T-shirt

Everyone loves a tie dyed T-shirt and making them is a fun way to experiment with dyeing clothes. Cotton T-shirts of all sizes can be turned into a colourful profit, even infant and toddler gear. You can also create tie-dyed scarves, trousers, curtains or blankets. Different coloured dyes are available at crafts stores for a small price and are easily usable by teens. Follow directions on dyes to ensure long-standing tie-dyes that wont fade in the wash.

Studded Candles

A candle casts a warm glow and also adds a colourful accent to a room. Use scented or plain candles of various shapes and sizes to create a wonderful craft that will quickly turn a profit. Colourful beads and craft pins turn any plain candle into a beautiful creation. Secure craft beads onto candles with craft pins in a unique design. Make collections of candles that match to encourage customers to purchase a set.


Simple jewellery can be created with beads, craft wire and earring hooks purchased at the craft store. Most items are reasonably priced and can be turned into delightful earrings designed by teens. Twist beads onto wire and secure using crafting pliers. Matching necklaces can be created to accompany earrings using necklace hooks and coordinating beads.

Leather Belts

A funky belt helps complete any teenage boy or girl's wardrobe. Leather belts can be woven or braided using lengths of leather purchased at the local craft or fabric store. Belt buckles can also be purchased for a small additional cost at craft stores and are easy to attach to handmade belts. String beads on the ends of leather belts for extra sparkle.
