Bazaar Crafts

No, not bizarre crafts - bazaar crafts! I'm looking for simple, inexpensive craft projects that can easily be done by something like a Girl Scout or Cub Scout troop in large numbers and sold at a Christmas bazaar as a fund raiser. Any ideas are welcome!

Just giggling re: bizarre vs bazaar. I so needed that giggle this morning, thank you.

Glad I made you giggle. It always makes my day to know that I helped make someone else feel better

busyb, thanks! Those are some great suggestions - I especially like the stadium seat pads from old newspapers. I'd never heard of those before. I'll definitely check out some of the recycled crafts sites.

A group I'm in has been doing "Snowman Poop" and "Reindeer Poop." These are really cheap to put together, easy to do had you can print out the little poems to go with them. http://kimstamps.com/poop.html

Oh, my gosh! There are some great ideas there! I've bookmarked that page because I'm sure that I'll use it again and again. Thanks, ElicBxn!

I thought they were clever, but I'm not doing craft shows. Oh, the person that did them for craft shows, says she was selling them for $1 and having to go home each night and make up more bags of the stuff!

cookie holder - cookie holder made from cd holder
Two different small things that sold at my craft sale last weekend were....take a cd holder and decorate it....I stamped it but you could use stickers...and sell it as a Christmas cookie holder.....also I took York peppermint patties and cut two circles that fit over it....I decorated the top....I also stamped it but you could use stickers...for table decorations. Use double faced tape to stick them to the mint. I sold a ton of these because they were cute and affordable....I sold both items for 50 cents apiece and made about fifty buck just off these two items...mostly the mints.
