I recently attended my first craft fair, and I needed a display stand for all the necklaces I had made.

I wanted something that was easy to make, cost nearly nothing, and reasonably cute.

Mission accomplished. It was a pretty big hit - lots of the other vendors complimented me on my display!

Step 1: What you'll need!

  • one medium to large cardboard box
  • one utility or craft knife
  • one wooden dowel, at least 5/8 inch in diameter and long enough for your purposes
  • ruler
  • pencil
Try to find a box with flaps or panels with no writing at all on them - it'll make the finished display look much better!

Also, I think it would be adorable to use a branch. That was my original plan, but it rained for a nearly a week before the day of the event, so that would have been sketchy. :P

Step 2: Drawing out the main shape!

The width will always be the same, but the height will depend on the length of your longest necklace.

The stand is 18 inches tall from base to the tip of the V - the base is 4 inches tall, and the V is 3 inches tall. The shaft is 11 inches tall - make it taller if your necklaces are super long. You don't want them brushing the base. This stand was the perfect height for necklaces on 18 inch chains.

The width of the base is 9 inches, and the width of the shaft is 3.

I drew the base first, and then added on the shaft and the V.

Cut out the first shape you create and trace around it to create the second one. This will ensure it matches. :)

Step 3: Cutting out base supports.

The base supports will be 3 inches high and 9 inches long, so that they can dock neatly in the base and form a solid X.
