DIY Jewelry display stands

Hello friends. How have you been ?

DIY JEWELRY STAND

I’m delighted to share with you guys a new development –  I have been designing handmade statement jewelry !!!   What a leap – in terms of creativity, atleast !!!

Please drop me a like at https://www.instagram.com/madelineposh/

We held a trunk show at The Villa a few months back; the details of which will be in an upcoming post.  One of the things, that I realized is that most of my necklaces were long and most of the display stands, I had, were short display units for the table stands.  Hence, I improvised.

I bought some white foam sheet and designed a display stand – however, quickly I realized that the stand was not large enough, inorder to allow my neck pieces to hang freely.

Also, it meant that I would need to make atleast 70 of these boards ! Plan A did not work out.

Plan B –  I’ve stored several bulletin boards (cork ones) in the shed. Time to make use of them.

I decided that these bulletin boards would be ideal since they could carry multiple strands and would be sturdy as well. However alittle prepping was in order. Here are some photos explaining what I’ve done.

A couple of coats of paint, and we’ll be ready in no time.

One of these boards had a large hole in it. I decided that for this one, we would place some dark blue, thin fabric over it, so as to hide the damage.  It worked so well coz we did not even have to glue or staple it – the push pin did the job !!!

Tip – Cork soaks up alot of paint.  The final coat is drying here.

I spray painted these push-pins to a dark shade of grey/black. These would be the hooks on my display board.

VOILA !!!

I love the look and how perfectly, everything fit in.

These are easy to store and very convenient to carry around too.

The length of the boards, helps to bring out the flow and drop of the necklaces.

Its a win win situation for me.

I love upcycling and I love to repurpose mundane objects.  How about you ? What was your last upcycle project ?

Craft Activity Stall Set-up at The Archive Fall Fair.

This is the fair season in Dubai. A whole lot of fairs and events are lined up for the next couple of months. The weather is brilliant, the whole city seems to be bustling with joyful activities and its the season to make the most of the outdoors !

The Archive Fall fair was absolutely fun and full of creativity.  The atmosphere was lively – had it just not been so windy, it would’ave been a perfect day !

The turn out was excellent.

We’ve never been the park-going-family but I think, these fairs are surely going to influence us 🙂

One of the best discoveries we made was that my oldest takes after me ! Buddy sat by himself with a roll of foil, and modeled some figurines. Within a short time, we had people observing him at a close distance, and alittle later, they were wanting to buy his figurines !!!!! He’s only 15 but he is bundled with talent – his figures were so intricate and detailed !  Needless to say, he was only too happy to share his figures for free. This fair, helped him grow by leaps in confidence, thanks to this chance discovery !  The picture below shows him sitting by himself, working on the foil 🙂

Some of the other vendors included Tie n dye shirts, Jam Jar, Kite flying, nail spa, face paint and ofcourse, yours truly, was hosting the arts and crafts desk.

Live graffiti was spray painted !! I mean, how cool is that !!

Catering was excellent, although alittle pricey. The barbecue was awesome.

The best part about attending any fair, is meeting talented people. Little kids who really want to experiment, try out new things, and meeting parents who encourage them and want them to have a good and creative time.

The Ripe Market experience was an enjoyable one for the whole family. While the boys played at the park, Mum and me browsed through scores of well displayed stalls selling everything from fresh farm produce to arts & crafts and everything in between !! After Friday Prayer, Sam, Dad and the boys returned and we all ate a lovely Indian meal at the park from one of the stalls.

I loved the entire “happy” and “lively” set up, whether it was the lovely farm feel of the fresh produce market or the live cooking stations or the bright yellow drums and stools for sitting, or the art and craft workshop for children or the petting zoo for the little ones or several stalls selling handmade products and handicrafts.

I believe the entire concept is to promote a family-friendly atmosphere and to develop a love and respect for home grown or organically grown produce.

Be sure to carry a large trolley bag or cart !!

You’ll find plenty of creative and colorful ideas in the above pictures of how to decorate and display your products in a stall or a craft fair.

I’m sharing this post with all my friends at the following parties :-

Hope and trust you found this post informative and enjoyable ! Does your community hold ripe markets, farm fest, market days or such ? Please share and I’ll be glad to pop over and have a sneak peak !
