Looking for some Cricut Etsy ideas to pay for the most expensive craft hobby ever?
Here are some of the hottest selling items on Etsy to help you get started.
Selling online in today’s world is a circus. It is easier than a decade ago but there are still a ton of technological hurdles setting up your storefront on various platforms.
It is exhausting work just to get to the starting line and when you finally open your virtual storefront its crickets…crickets for your Cricut craft.
At the end of the day, even if you make the most beautiful, intricate, creative, Picasso level oven mitt, if no one needs an oven mitt, no one is going to buy your masterpiece.
Cricut items to sell on Etsy that are in high demand
Not to put down all oven mitt makers, they are super functional and necessary for even the novice cook but the reality is, you can buy one from Ikea for $2.99.
The heart of the matter is, we need to get down to the fundamental basics of business — Econ 101: supply and demand. If there is no demand, you as the supplier will have no business.
If you’re going to sell online, I would recommend going where everyone is buying. That place would be Etsy. There are other online markets but Etsy is probably the most globally well know and more importantly, largest online market place with 39.4+million buyers all around the world this year.
Most Wanted Cricut Etsy Ideas
Why do people buy handmade?
We love to think it is because they are kind-hearted people that want to support local artisans but the reality is, that is just a side benefit.
Consumers buy handmade when there is a level of customization that can’t be done with mass production and manufacturing.
It does not make economic sense for those Chinese manufacturers selling on Alibaba to make a customized mug that says “Caitlyn” is glitter vinyl.
But it does make sense for you, as the crafty Cricut crafter to start a side hustle selling glitter “Caitlyn” mugs.
(as a side note, don’t try to make money selling customized mugs, there are TOO many people, aka too much supply, in customized mug making)
So here are the top searched items on Etsy.
