Being a mom is a full-time job in itself. Raising your kids is one of the most rewarding yet stressful things you will ever do. It requires around-the-clock effort and attention, but it comes with the benefit of being able to spend time with your family. However, as your kids get older and go off to daycare or school, you may find that your once busy schedule gets a whole lot more manageable. You may even notice that you have spare time (what’s that like, again?) and are not quite sure what to do with it.

If you find yourself in this situation, consider taking on a side hustle. Even if you are a working mom, pursuing a side hustle is totally plausible. You just have to dedicate some extra time to it! Crafts are a great side hustle for moms as you can do them from the comfort of your own home and get creative with your extra time. So if you need help selecting a hobby for your newly-found free time, consider trying out these 5 side hustles for crafty moms.

  1. Make Jewelry

Jewelry is a fun and simple craft that you can do at home. Plus, it only requires a few resources. You can make necklaces, bracelets, earrings—whatever your heart desires! There are tons of different ways you can also go about selling your jewelry, such as Etsy, Depop, or at local flea markets. To start, simply create a vision that is unique to your own interests, and the business will be sure to follow. 

  1. Handmade Soap

I bet you did not know that making soap at home is as easy! Making soap requires only a few ingredients and is completely customizable. You can choose the scent, color, and even the shape with silicone molds for soap. Not to mention, handmade soap smells amazing and feels much better on your skin than the store-bought stuff. 

  1. Sew Clothing

If you have always had a knack for sewing, now is the time to break out that sewing machine that has been hidden in the back of your closet and make some clothes. There are tons of websites out there where you can sell handmade clothing and make decent money from it as a side hustle. Check out your local thrift store for clothes or stock up on some fabric and have fun getting creative!

  1. Restore Old Furniture

Restoring old furniture is definitely more time-consuming, but it is a great side hustle for crafty moms who find they have a lot of extra time on their hands. Restoring old furniture can also be very rewarding and exciting, as you turn a neglected piece of furniture and turn it into something brand new. Check out Pinterest to get furniture and decorating inspiration.

  1. Knitting

Knitting is a useful and versatile skill that can be used to make a variety of things, such as hats, scarves, shirts—you name it, and you can probably knit it. Knitting is also a great side hustle to take on because you can do it from literally anywhere. All you need is a pair of needles, a ball of yarn, some scissors, and you are good to go!

Final Thoughts

Being a mom might be a full-time job, but that shouldn’t stop you from pursuing something on the side! If you find yourself with spare time on your hands, make some use out of it and get crafty! In the best-case scenario, you have a side hustle that boosts your income. However, the worst-case scenario is not all that bad. You would have spent some time making fun crafts. It is a win-win situation if you ask me.
