The market for home made gifts is really booming and it's a great time to take advantage of that boom. One of the best ways to earn money fast in this niche is making home made candles. There are many reasons that this is a great opportunity.
First of all, the start up cost is very low. You can buy wax and wicks in bulk. The best way is to buy plain white wax and purchase dyes to make it the color you want. This is very easy and will cost much less money than if you tried to buy up several different types of pre-dyed wax.
Another reason this is such a lucrative idea is that it does not take a lot of skill. With a lot of other crafting home businesses, you must have a certain amount of artistic vision and skill to get started. It often takes years of practice before you can make products good enough for resale. With candle making, however, the process is extremely simple. There are many tutorials available on YouTube.com that can teach the tips and tricks in no time.
Once you've made a few candles you can list them for sale on sites like Ebay.com or Etsy.com and be getting orders in before you know. These candles only take a few minutes to make and you can see profits within hours of first listing them for sale. Of all the ways to earn money fast, this is truly one of the most successful I've come across.
