Each product we feature is handmade by artists in the firebird workshop and is ready for shipping. You can make a purchase using the links included.
Our research this early January discovered that this year, searches for handmade dolls and DIY home décor items have skyrocketed as many of us are looking into quarantine-friendly activities to keep busy.
Etsy rank - an Etsy marketplace tool - also shows a 200-percent increase in searches for DIY ideas.
Whether you are a DIY amateur or experienced artist, the world is shifting to a creator based economy, and more people are spending time to learn and master crafting.
According to Yulia Zolotoraeva - Etsy Marketplace user and the mastermind behind Firebird Workshop, the pandemic has pushed our desires to create something new to higher lengths.
So are you curious about what craft trends will flood the markets in 2021? From homemade dolls to blank DIYs and more, here a list of handmade craft trends that will dominate the DIY world in the new year.
Are you looking for a fun and crafty way to spend time together with your kids in the new year? If you are spending more time relaxing at home, you'll want to craft some adorable DIY-style décor to enhance its appeal. Our customers are turning to paint now more than ever. Scrolling through TikTok, Instagram, or Facebook, we noticed people painting canvases, clothes, and other everyday items.
We decided to make blanks dolls for you to do paint them however you want. Obviously, not everyone owns a lathe and lots of dry wood at home, so we are selling already-carved dolls. Check out our blank nesting dolls on Etsy.
We also have blank peg dolls ($4.58, etsy.com), blank nesting dolls ($4.58, etsy.com), made from ethically-sourced linden wood. Get our unpainted keychains, magnets, and bracelets that allow you to wear your custom art with you.
If your kids are not already painting with acrylic or water-based paints, you should let them try. Painting is a therapeutic and exciting handicraft activity to help stay entertained indoors, and therapists also say that painting can reduce stress and anxiety.
Why buy fancy Easter eggs when you can paint your very own masterpiece at home? Not only are hand-painted Easter eggs a creative way to stay entertained indoors, but you’ll save on Easter décor too. It doesn’t come as a shock that there is an uptick in searches for blank Easter eggs, compared to this time last year. If you're new to painting, try our blank Easter wooden eggs ($10, etsy.com). Draw inspiration from any of our hand-painted wooden eggs.
Here’s our wooden kitchen toy playset, a product of fine woodworking and sublime designing. We left them unpainted just in case you or your children have some ideas.
Instead of getting new furniture in the new year, we think shoppers will tighten their purses, and they will be revamping what they already have at home. Upcycling household items like lamps, pallets, flower vases and wall-art with textural paints and finishes will continue to be a big craft trend in 2021. They are cheap projects that anyone can accomplish in a short amount of time. If you don't have a piece of furniture to update, you can salvage a used find.
