Sizing, Materials and Tools
Pictures come in a multitude of sizes. To better serve your customers, you should create some frames in all sizes to better meet their framing needs. Use a measuring tape or ruler to pre-measure out any materials that you will be creating the frame from. Wood pieces are perfect for creating frames out of and can be painted and decorated in many ways. You will also need some form of glue. Craft glue for wood and a hot glue gun are perfect to use when making frames. You will also need metal photo corners for some of your frames to give them a nice, finished look and make them durable. You can find some great metal corners on www.curlson.com. They have any size and style you might be looking for.
Where To Sell
There are many places to sell your picture frames both online and off the internet. If you want to sell them in person, you could always rent a booth at a flea market or trade show. Craft fairs are also great places to sell your handmade items. The benefit of selling them off of the internet is that people can see your frames up close and in person before purchasing. If you want to sell them online, you will have many options as well available to you. You can sell your handmade frames on auction sites and you could even create your own blog or website to sell them through. When you sell your frames online, the potential to reach a larger customer base is greater.
Creating handmade items to sell for profit such as picture frames can be a fun and easy way to make a little extra money on the side. If you are really good at creating an item that many people love and want to buy, you will find that you can make a good amount of income. Some people who create homemade crafts end up selling their items full time.
