I came across this on a blog a year ago or so and found it such a help, as I didn’t want to use (and couldn’t afford to anyway) the traditional necklace stands in my table display at markets.
What you’ll need: a large piece of heavy stock paper (i.e. card stock), glue, felt or other fabric, scissors, cutting blade, pencil.
- Print out the template below and use it to trace the shape of the stand onto your card
- Cut out the shape of the stand from the card
- Glue the fabric to the cut-out card (you could also use pretty paper) and trim the excess fabric, so that you're left with the shape of the stand
These are so easy to make and are great for use at markets and/or at home to hang your earrings, necklaces etc.
What you’ll need: a standing picture frame, fabric, scissors, thin elastic, tape or glue.
- Remove the stand, card backing and glass from your picture frame - I love the faux-gilt ones from the 2 Euro shops (and they’re super cheap).
- The card backing is usually pretty ugly and plain, so it’s a good idea to cover it in some fabric. I would suggest using a plain fabric - something’s that’s going to show the earrings off to full effect and not take away from them. You can simply tape or glue the material to the backing.
- Once the material is in place cut strips of thin elastic and tie them around the frame - you want them very taut. How many rows of elastic you have will depend on the size of the frame and the length of the earrings you’re planning on hanging on it.
- Once your strips of elastic are in place and spaced correctly you can replace the stand at the back of the frame
