Work from home business ideas for the creative person

Work from home business ideas
I love working from home. I have worked very hard and for a very long time to have this small luxury, I wish everyone could do it! So, I have compiled a small list of at-home business ideas for the creative mind.

Arts Studio

If you have a knack for painting and drawing, this at-home business is a perfect fit. More than ever, the love of art is on the rise. People nowadays are willing to spend good money on the art they believe to be unique and stunning. Because of this, going into this type of home business is a great option.

Jewelry Making

Jewellers use different materials to make their products, such as ceramics and iron. If you love fashion, especially the accessories that go along with fashion, then you might want to consider becoming a jeweller. Being creative in this field is how you achieve success.

Tie-Dye Making

The tie-dye business has been around for a long time. The good news is that it’s still a popular at-home business that people go into – because retro is in! If you are a tie-dye lover or even just a general art lover, this business may be something you should consider. The first thing you should know is that you have to be skilled in this trade of business. However, if you don’t know much about this trade, you can always learn and create some unique products.

Card & Stationery Making

If you love giving gifts, then this type of business might be something you really enjoy doing. You can get started quickly without spending a lot of money upfront. This may be one of the easiest businesses to start up at home.

Wood Work

If you are good at carving wood or building objects using wood, this is a great option for a home business for you. The industry is very profitable and there are a lot of things you can do with wood. Some things you may consider making are beautiful rustic signs with inspirational quotes.

Basket Weaving

I used to tease my husband about this. It seemed that when he was playing video games, they were games of basket weaving. ( he didn’t like that very much) BUT if you want to start a craft business, this may be a good place to start. This is simply because a lot of people are on the lookout for homemade decorations for their homes, making this type of business very profitable.


You can do a lot with knitting. There are options like making scarves, toques, mittens, cardigans, sweaters, and so much more. There is not a large start-up cost in this type of business so if you’re on a limited budget, then this might be a good option for you to consider. Especially during the winter months in the Great White North, we call Canada.

Candle Making

I’ve always had the entrepreneurial spirit, when I was a teen, the first business I wanted to create was a custom candle company.  I even had a name and a logo – but that was as far as I was able to go. Sadly, my candle company, “Wicked”, never made it past my daydreams.

Candles have been in use for over 2,000 years and are still in high demand. They are used all over the world for religious reasons or in homes for decoration. You’ll have a very successful business if you make scented candles and different shapes, as these types of candles are very popular.

These are all great options you can consider for your new home business. Don’t be scared to try new things. There aren’t any rules to craft making, but when selling is sure to sell products you have fun doing and are confident in creating. They can earn you a great deal of money and provide you with something to do with any extra time on your hands.
