Picture of Simple and Cheap Art Stand/Easel
Going to be displaying or selling some art soon but don't have the cash to dish out for stands for all of your masterpieces? FEAR NOT! All you need is three straight sticks, three rubber bands, and a small board you can make a mighty fine little tripod stand that you could make a small army of for the cost of one store-bought stand.

This can also be a great simple to make easel for those with little ones who want to do some painting this summer. The kids can make the easel then they can make Michelangelo jealous with their paintings.

Step 1: Materials

There's plenty of room for other materials if you like, but the easiest I could thing of is as follows.

3- rubber bands
3- 1/2"x5' wooden dowels
1- 1"x2" board the width of your display piece

You could also use PVC,bamboo, string, or replace the board with a wide enough stick your display won't fall off. Go nuts.
