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


<p>thanks for the very economical display idea! I made one in less than 10 min and I now have my necklaces out where I can see them instead of all jumbled up in a bag.</p>
Maybe my table will be by your's at the next fair. Thanks for sharing.
Nice and simple!
Awesome! Very helpful, too.
