This past December, I was doing my first show at our local mall. I had no idea how I was going to display all of the earrings that I had made.
While shopping for beading supplies, I saw wooden trees with holes in them. I bought them and some dowel rods and glue, along with paint, I whistled all the way home 🙂
After getting all the pieces cut and glued in, I painted the trees green and used on my tables at the mall. I used them again in April at a festival and realized that maybe I should use them only at Christmas, but I’m not sure.
While at the mall, I also needed something to elevate my jewelry trays to help display them all. I thought of some flower trays that I had used in cake decorating class and went home to find them. I used plastic/sticky shelf liner fabric on them and they work great with my trays.
I cut a couple of them to have different various elevation advantages.
