There are so many crafty hobbies that you can profit from and have fun with. One of my hobbies is making boat model kits and selling them when I complete them. Also I make contemporary & digital art and sell pieces at times. You can make a craft out of nearly anything and could even consider it a work of art. You can create a web store and sell your crafts/art on Ebay. Below is 3 craft ideas with a low investment and high profit rate. I will be adding more so bookmark my Hub. I cover model kits, craft sticks and pet rock art.
