There are a number of popular sites on the internet for people that love to craft. These sites often specialize in presenting projects and selling the supplies necessary. Small vendors have found their homes contain many of the items sold for crafts today. Pine trees used to be a bother when they dropped their cones on the ground. No longer are items like this tossed into the nearest trash can. Now they can be sold as is on many sites. Some people take the time to paint them first and sell for a higher price. These are a large number of holiday projects that use pine cones.
Mason jars have often been a problem for people that used them in canning. Once they were opened and the contents used, the jars needed new lids. Most people would donate them to thrift shops or toss them in the trash. Some have begun recycling as the glass can be melted and reused. Crafters have learned there are many beautiful uses for these jars. They can be made beautiful with a few odd pieces of colored thread or yarn and filled with candy, pens or other small items. Even the lids can be used to create beautiful tree ornaments.
Social media has been a key way to promote crafts and supplies. Ideas abound across sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Each generally has a photo or video of the end product and a link to a site where supplies can be purchased.
Not every craft project will require a purchase. Searching the internet with keywords will generally produce a project that can be made with available items. For crafts, the web has been a fruitful way to find creative ideas for little or no cost.
