Before I begin, we need to chat etiquette and ethics – because it DOES matter.

When you’re looking for things to make and sell on Pinterest and other websites, it’s important to respect the intellectual property of others.

 

Some Do’s and Don’ts of finding things to make and sell online:

Do’s:

  • Do make it your own. Add something, remove something – add your own twist to the tutorial. Use the ideas given below to come up with your own ideas for things to make and sell based on these.
  • Do credit your inspiration. The crafts featured in this post were featured WITH permission for you to be inspired by them. But they’d love it if you gave credit to them for having inspired them!
  • Do check for copyright information on the blog. Keep in mind that Pinterest doesn’t create any tutorials – it’s moms and bloggers like me who spend many hours figuring out what works and what doesn’t, making those mistakes, and writing them up, then sharing them on Pinterest.

 

Don’ts:

  • Don’t use someone else’s images. Always take your own!
  • Don’t fit into a box. Look for the things you’re passionate about, start there, and then do something unexpected!
  • Don’t leave it at that! What makes something extra special is a handwritten note, a sign it was made with love, careful packaging. Make it truly special.

With that being said, I asked around and got permission from some bloggers to share these things to make and sell with you.

 

Start your Etsy shop today and share your craft!! You get 40 free listings to start so it’s basically totally risk-free.
