At the start of the pandemic, the population of plant parents exploded, and businesses that sell plants and plant accessories reaped the rewards. Furthermore, since plant maintenance requires a long-term investment, ancillary firms will profit for many years. Due to the requirement for specialized ovens (referred to as kilns) to burn the clay, there is frequently a more significant entry barrier for pottery. Although they are sometimes too expensive and limited in capacity, you can typically find community centers or clay studios that rent out kiln time. Plant pots that resemble pottery can also be created using cement or air clay and poured into molds without needing to be fired. Learn how to work with clay and gain access to a kiln by enrolling in a pottery workshop or class. Through this, you can earn at least Php 5,000 depending on the size of the pots you sell.


  • Tote Bags


With alternatives for every level of creativity and experience, this is one of our list’s most adaptable craft ideas. Blank cotton tote bags can be purchased for a bargain price and then customized using silkscreening, beading, hand painting, textile dyeing, or embroidery. For more experienced sewers, please create your tote bag pattern and sew it from scratch. Add pockets, closures, and other elements to make it uniquely yours. Make a useable tote bag out of vintage clothing or fabric as a sustainable alternative. Consumer preferences are continuing to lean toward companies with a focus on sustainability. You can earn a profit as low as Php 10,000 with continuous production.
