Hello! I am apart of The GLBT Pittsburgh Student Association and we're currently trying to think of crafty (gay!) ideas to fund raise. What do you think we should make/do?
We're trying to think of something that would take less than 30minutes to complete, sells between 10-25 dollars USD, and won't take much material wise.
Tee shirts are, unfortunately, a no-no.

What about tote bags/reusable grocery bags?

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

Well, if you are clever enough you can turn these wreaths into works of art that might make them worth the money you want to get, but nobody is going to pay that much  for the mundane that takes no time and is made of cheap materials.


Different color schemes and themes couild make it work.

Hi no-ones-song,

You could buy a badge/ button maker and make fun pin badges for people to buy. If you sold them in sets of 4 or 5 you could charge $10 I think or sell them individually.
I'm not sure of the cost of a badge maker but I think you can get them quite cheaply.

Or you could get someone arty in the group to do an illustration and then churn out a load of screenprinted mini-posters.

Good luck!

Marble magnets in altoids tins (or equivalent) might work. It's a pretty inexpensive for the materials, and as long as you put the time in, can come across very well. Plus it's very flexible in terms of themes as well.

You could make pins out of felt of paper bags. You stich the the same, and you can put quotes on either one or paint pictures on the paper bags. I cant find a picture of the paperbag, but its the same stich as the felt photo. And you fill both with cotton.

hemp bracelets with rainbow beads. they look really good and would probably sell for 10.00, maybe 6 or 7 would be better though.

I would also check around this board to see what other charities have done and alter it to your cause.

Crocheted scarfs or other small projects would do well I think.  Five skeins of yarn should yield a fair number of scarfs.  Perhaps knitted i-cord bracelets/bangles in all the different colors?

As I understand this will be at an event?   (If I'm wrong...well that happens a lot, sorry XD)

Pony beads (The plastic beads that often are used by kids, and they put them in their hair)  Are inexpensive and can be strung on things like 'stretch magic'!  Then you can make bracelets or necklaces.  I know I've spent plenty of money on cheap things that I knew were going to break, just because it was for a good cause and I knew my money was actually going somewhere Smiley

Good luck!

I do: Polymer clay minatures, Polymer clay beads, Beadweaving, Jewelry, Stone cutting (Cabachons) and wirework.  I will be doing: Stone cutting (faceted), Pottery, Silver and Glass work.

Personal swaps welcome Smiley
