Creative ways to display your products

Lately I've been brainstorming different ideas to make my display interesting for my next craft show. I don't want my booth to look like everyone else's, or it might get looked over. The only way to prevent yourself from having the same old look is to make your own. I recently blogged about a unique shelf I made from a old mannequin. Next up are these trendy boxes I purchased from Michaels. The first one I will show you has a neat design with gold foiling, adding a nice contrast to the subtle print.
 This box was available in different sizes but the one I bought had enough room for four racks. I love that this box has a lid, it makes it great for traveling to craft shows.

 In these next few pictures you will see what is holding up the bracelets. These small little dowels are very inexpensive and easy to cut with a hand saw. They can be found at craft stores and hardware stores.

 You might be wondering what is holding up the dowels? As you can see in the next pictures, I used small wood "O's".... Strange, I know. I found a selection of wood letters and was planning on using "C's" but realized if I cut the "O" in half I could get more for my money and in the end I think they held the dowels more securely. 
 I used leather glue.... It's what I had at the time LOL Anyways I just pressed the half circles where I wanted them for about 20-30 seconds and then let them dry on their own the rest of the way.
 The placing of the half circles took a bit of planning to make sure the rows would be evenly spaced. With a little bit of patience and a ruler... they turned out perfect!


    I couldn't leave out the cuffs for men. Especially when I saw this neat graphic vintage style luggage box.(Also from Michaels) I love the look of this box. The latch closure and handle give it so much character.  
This box was a bit larger than the previous box. It had enough room for five rows of cuffs.

 I used the same supplies as I used for the first rack. This time though, I painted the "O's" and the dowels black to match the inside of the box.



 Well, that's it for now. Let me know what you think. Have you made any displays your proud of? Comment Below and share!

    1. Jeanne, These cuffs have snaps, so if they would like to, they can unsnap it, or they can just take the whole row off. I think the first way would be easier. Thanks for the question, Janie

  5. This rack full of cuffs with different styles, gems and Rhinestones is very unique and definitely useful. The other racks have impressive styles also. Thanks for sharing your crafts.
