1. Opening of a painting studio
Universities and special art schools that graduate future artists are available in almost all cities. But there are not so many places where kids or adults are taught without any claim to a career as an artist. The demand for this service is only growing, so the creation of such a business is very important.
Main idea: opening of its own painting studio, acquiring a growing number of clients with creative needs.
Will fit: teachers by vocation, professional artists, sculptors.
What do you need: bright spacious room, chairs / tables, easels, computer / projector, office supplies, etc.
What we invest in: furniture, rental of premises (for 10 students, a room of 40 m is sufficient).
Are you going to teach on your own? This means that additional staff is not needed yet. After renting premises and buying everything you need, all that remains is to register an individual entrepreneur, deal with the accounting issue and advertise (for example, a signboard, an Internet site, message boards, etc.).
2. Making costumes for dogs
Owners with four-legged pets, dressed in the latest fashion, can be found at every step. Dog costumes have long become not just a luxury, but a part of individuality and, in some cases, a necessity (for example, for naked dogs or eternally freezing four-legged babies). Of course, every owner is looking for an exclusive costume for a pet, and if you have the talent and passion for tailoring fashionable clothes, then this is a chance to create such a business. And if there is no talent, it doesn’t matter. Learning this business is not so difficult.

Main idea: tailoring of exclusive costumes for dogs.
Will fit: seamstresses.
What do you need: sewing machine, patterns, materials and your imagination.
What are we investing in: a good sewing machine (if you don’t have your own), materials.
To begin with, you can take options for suits directly from the Internet, and, having filled your hand, go on to the implementation of your own ideas. When it comes to advertising, all is fair. From word of mouth and message boards to hobby clubs, exhibitions and related forums.
3. The painting is wrong
This technology appeared a long time ago – more than 600 years ago, in Japan. It represents the creation of compositions in paintings using press-dried herbs, flowers or twigs. Of course, if you are not yet familiar with this type of art, then first you should take a course. Well, there is enough natural material everywhere. Materials are collected, pressed and dried. And after creating trial versions of paintings (provided they are commercially attractive), you can start selling them – through a personal website, auctions or souvenir shops.
Will fit: artists, needlewomen, creative personalities.
What do you need: natural materials, imagination, knowledge of technology.
Manual labor will always be valued more than manufactured goods. One painting in this technique can cost 3000-30,000 rubles.
4. Creation of garden decorative figures
Some time ago, we admired the design of kindergartens in foreign films. And today we already have the opportunity to independently design our sites using landscape design and other tricks. Even the most beautiful plot looks faceless without garden figures. And given the increased demand for them, under certain conditions you can make good money on this. Moreover, the cost of the piece is 5 times lower than the price of the finished product.
Will fit: designers, sculptors, artists.
What do you need: materials for casting forms (concrete, gypsum or polystone), the forms themselves (10-15 original forms), paints, artistic skills.
Advertising: flyers, leaflets by boxes, internet, bulletin boards.
The process of creating a figure is preparing a mixture, pouring it into the desired shape (for example, a gnome or a bird), extracting it after solidification and painting the product. Of course, artistic skills are more than necessary, unless you have the desire to share income with an artist friend who will paint your figures for a fee. And it is advisable to inquire in advance about demand for certain figures, so that later they do not lie dead weight in your dacha.
5. Eco-man – souvenir products
An ideal way to earn money, due to the high demand for “eco” in general – for ecotourism, eco-goods, furniture, etc. What is an eco-person? These products are a particle of nature in your home: the “head” (a planting pot made of white ceramics) and the lower part – a silhouette of a person and other thematic shapes. The kit usually contains soil in a bag and grass seeds. The figure is suitable for any interior. And thanks to various forms (a pregnant woman, a person in a lotus position, a child, etc.), she can become an excellent gift. Great business idea for a housewife!
Main idea: creation of eco-souvenirs, personifying purity and harmony (white and green).
Will fit: anyone.
What do you need: material (ceramics), soil, seeds (flowers, lawn grass), white paint.
6. Breeding butterflies
Many people already know about salute from tropical butterflies or live butterflies in beautiful gift boxes. Most often, these insects are successfully used at weddings and other holidays instead of traditional pigeons and balls. Breeding butterflies from a common hobby has already confidently moved into the category of a profitable business.
Customers: holiday agencies, individuals…
Will fit: anyone.
What do you need: a room, an insectarium (aquarium for insects), those / means for maintaining the desired temperature in the insectarium, pupae of tropical butterflies, a greenhouse for tropical plants (for feeding the larvae), dry branches in the aquarium (on which butterflies dry their wings) and patience.
Pupae can be ordered through the global network or purchased from the same “butterfly breeders”. If you follow all the rules, you can very quickly recoup the invested (not so big) funds.
7. Creation and promotion of online magazines
Perhaps this is the best business idea for a housewife! Armed with the appropriate knowledge, you will be able to offer the world high-quality useful content, self-actualize in the direction that you like. It can be handicrafts, psychology, exact sciences, interesting life stories, etc.
Gather a team of like-minded people and take action! At first, you can write articles for the magazine yourself, later, when the business starts to make a profit, you can order articles from the authors.
