Home Made Earring Display & Tray Riser

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.

  1. Those trees were a great find, Tara! I like how you painted them and turned them into ideal earring displays for you. The holes are spaced perfectly for them. I also like that their tall, skinny shape adds interest to the table while leaving you more room for other things on the table. And I love your inventive idea for your cake decorating supplies!

  2. Love the vertical trees and the hanging cards. I use 5 empty cardboard boxes of different heights to elevate the display in the back of my table. They fit inside each other, are light weight and covered with fabric they work like a charm. You can see a picture of it on the “Show Schedule” page of my website. I normally have 2 risers on one side and 3 on the other. Guess I need a new photo!!

  3. I love the trees and i think they are perfect for any time of the year. If you had covered them with sparkles etc I think christmas would be the only time. Perhaps you could paint one another colour Ie: black or white just to add difference to your table.

    Thank you guys 🙂 I love your idea Diane. In fact, I’ve made more earrings. Perhaps, if I get lucky, I can buy another tree and paint it differently and have a little more “hanging” room. Rena, thank you for your website. There are so many fabulous ideas and I love the contests!! 🙂

  5. You’re very welcome, Tara – and thanks so much for your lovely comment!
