With the recent lockdown, more and more people are learning how to make handmade products to sell online. However, did you know that selling handmade products in Singapore was already on the rise even before the pandemic?

If you haven’t already picked up a craft, here are some popular ideas that you can consider!


One of the most popular categories for handmade products in Singapore, accessories encompass so many different things. You can create unique bracelets out of beads or kumihimo strings. Or you can even use resin to create a truly unique piece of earrings, hair clip or necklace.


Think you have an artistic flair? Why not try creating your own work of art?

How about art pieces inspired by your favourite fantasy characters? These works are usually in high demand, especially in the Japanese anime community! There are even several events for selling character-related artworks, such as AFA and Doujima.

You can print and sell your artwork in A1 to A5 or print them in die-cut stickers or decal for people to buy. Many craft businesses are also creating keychains and enamel pins based on their artwork as an extension of their main product range.

Ladies love their bags and can never have enough of them. If you’re skilled with a sewing machine and have a knack for design, you can create all kinds of bags, from the basic tote bag to the ever so elegant purses and clutches.


Singaporeans love to eat. Nothing beats a fresh plate of chicken rice with our kopi for lunch. As such, why not explore cooking or baking?

Just look at some of our local brands, such as GSH conserves or Mdm Ling Bakery.

Time to let your inner baker and chef shine!
