My long post for Wednesday is going to be how I made some pretty displays for my art show booth. So to lead up to that here are some links to other ways to make your own displays.

Indie Craft Shows - DIY Displays: An ongoing series of posts with display ideas such as a greeting card earring display, DIT display risers, and using a vintage truck to make a jewelry display.
Ring Display - Using a wooden tray, soft foam, and fabric.
Pendant Display - Cute idea using pieces of tile
Wire Earing Display - Made larger and with hooks rather than loops it could be used for bracelets, necklaces, etc.

And a few quick ideas for re-purposing objects as displays I've come up with:
  • Use terra-cotta pots as risers.
  • Lazy susans make nice displays that people can rotate
  • Small wire trashcans can be flipped upside down and used to hang earrings, ornaments, etc.tura
  • Large sea shells can be used to hold business cards or small items (I use this one)
  • Branches can be used to hang items like necklaces
  • Baskets come in so many sizes you can find them to hold almost anything from small jewelry items to large prints.
  • Connect 3 old doors together with hinges (think folding screen) and use for hanging paintings, frames photos, etc. I got this idea from the Shy, Novice, and Closeted Art Show
