I don't have the time or the budget for fancy display stands for my craft stall just now, so I have scoured the house to see what I items I can use/recycle etc. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted to achieve so gathered up the materials, in particular, to make a bracelet display stand.
Firstly, I used an off cut of fleece material and wrapped it around a cardboard tube that was left over when I had finished with a roll of cling film. I didn't use glue, I just wrapped it around the tube making sure there was an overlap and tucking the ends in each end of the tube.
In the kitchen drawer I found an old cork that fitted snugly into the candlestick that was on the mantelpiece. I used a hot glue gun to stick the cork into the middle of the tube making sure plenty of glue was used all around the cork to keep it stable.
I then cut a small piece of fabric to pull over the cork to hide the messy glue residue, sticking down with a few drops from the glue gun.
I don't think my display stand would win a prize, but it just goes to show what you can achieve when under time pressure,with few resources. The creative thinking cap has to come on!
