What Else to Make for Christmas Craft Fair?
This year, I'll be attending a craft fair in which I'll be selling all my soaps and stuff.
I'm trying to figure out what else I should make to sell. There are always TONS of people selling jewelry so I want to stay away from that if I can.
I have soap, bath salts, lip balms, and sugar scrubs to sell. I'm trying to think of things that would go well with them that I could sew, or just some other bath goodies.
A few ideas crossed my mind that I would like to get your thoughts on:
-Aromatherapy bath oils
I figured I could make matching cosmetic bag + sleeping mask sets but I don't really know how well they would do. I'd probably try to get about $7 or so for a set, or $5 for the bag and $3 for the mask if I were to sell them separately.
What do you all think? Any other ideas?
Oh I love the idea of the sleeping mask!!!! That sounds awesome, it would be even cooler if you paired it with a small bottle of scented lotion, something relaxing like lavender or peppermint, and put but with a little bag! You could easily charge $10-15 for a set, depending on how long it takes you to see and what size lotion you pair with it.
Even if you did your regular sets of lotion and soap, lotion and scrub, or lotion and lip gloss/perfume, if you made a cut little bag for them to go in, that would be adorable. You could just make a variety of colors of the same patten of bags and then say like "lotion & soap set with bag of your choice $20" or whatever your prices are.
But I think you have a good idea with the sleeping masks, could you fill the mask with something like a bit if rice and them add in a few drops of essential oils to make them feel heavier and smell amazing? If not maybe just spritz them with a bit of oil
Once upon a time I bought this amazing stuff called something like "night time pillow spray" and it smelled like a minty lavender heaven, anyway the idea was to spritz some on your pillow a as your getting ready for bed and the smell would help you relax as fall asleep. It was amazing I tried to find it ever since and can't, I've found a few brands like it but haven't tried them yet. Anyway if you could make something like that in small amounts you could put them in those cheap travel size spray bottles. And them pair then with a matching lotion. Or a sleeping mask.
Have you seen those little Chapstick holders I've been crocheting on FB? My sister and her friends live those, they are fast and easy to make and you already have the Chapstick
I think those are all great ideas. Also if you knit or crochet a pair of soft knitted socks always make me feel like I'm being pampered.
Sadly, I am not good enough at crochet to really make anything substantial. Lol.
But I think I will definitely make the sleeping masks! The rice and oil might be neat. I will have to try it!
I might do sets of like a soap, a sleeping mask, and bath oils in a bag for $10 or $15, depending on how big I make the bag. I have some golden apple fabric that I've been meaning to use forever!
get some christmas shaped soap molds, it sound cheesy but people love it.... and try some chrismas smells, mint, sugar, orange, those are pretty popular in the scentsy stuff my mom sells this time of year
Hm... I do have some molds that are in Christmassy shapes. I just might have to make some.
You can also add some little crochet washcloths, and add ribbons to your soaps before they set to create holiday ornaments to be hung from Christmas trees.
I would make washcloths if I could crochet well enough. lol. Maybe I'll learn something in the next month before the fair.
what about those little body scrubber things that you put soap in I can't think of what they're called right now, you don't necessarily have to make them they sell for cheap at the dollar store
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
