Book Shelf Accessory/Jewelry Display Tutorial
I have another fabulous display idea for craft shows. Of course you could use this display for a wide range of things. It would even be a nice way to keep your own accessories organized. My husband and I made this together. Basically it's a book shelf, with chicken wire on the back, for hanging accessories, and push pins on the sides and front for hanging necklaces. I am going to use it mostly for displaying miniature book earrings and necklaces, however you could use it to display magnets, hair clips, pins, or whatever you like. My husband did all the saw work, we like me with all my digits, and he knows what a klutz I am. I wanted to keep it very simple to make, small enough that I could easily transport it to craft shows, and have it easily fit on a display table.
Craft Show TIP; display 1 of each style of earrings or accessories on the chicken wire backing, and necklaces on the pins, then have lots of duplicate items packaged and ready for sale on the shelf portion.
6 pieces of wood, each 2ft long and 5 1/2 inches wide (or whatever size you prefer)
Approximately 25x23.5 inches of Chicken Wire
Step 1: Cut 6 even pieces of wood.
Step2: Nail your pieces together to make your shelf. My husband used an air nail gun.
Step3: Fill in seems, nail holes, or any cracks with wood putty.
Step4: Sand over wood putty.
Step 5: Staple your chicken wire to the back
Step 6: Paint
Step 7: Add Your Push Pins or Small Hooks
The entire project cost about $15! I really love how it turned out.
In the collage above, on the bottom right hand side, you can see how it will look in my craft fair booth.
Thank you Jerry for helping make my shelf!
