Heh. Now that I have your attention......  Wink

Here's an idea I came up with for a cheap, good looking display for my necklaces and chokers. You need:


1. A bowl (mine was from the steak border bowl from taco bell. hmmmm...feeling hungry.....),
 
2. Some spare cardboard, or wood or whatever you like to use. Doesn't matter what it looks like, as you can see, 'cause it gets covered up. Depends how long you want it to last, I suppose.

3. Some fabric that matches your fancy.

So, construction:

1. For a base, cut out two equal longish triangles and a rectangle that matches the height of the triangles short side. You'll notice throughout this tutorial that I am NOT a measuring freak.  Tongue



2. For the main display, cut out a largish rectangle that fits the bowl and some extra length in the front. You can see that I drew a circle around the bowl on my board before I cut it out. I would make at least 1/3 extra length in the front, but you can adjust for your tastes.



3. Glue the bowl to the board. I used 5 minute epoxy, that stuff is awesome!


4. Cut out your fabric. I used about 4 times the long measurement of the board and gave about an inch on each side. Mebbe 2 1/2 feet by 8 inches? Told ya I don't measure.



5. I did this the quick and dirty way, so you guys will probably be able to come up with a MUCH better method for this. I just wrapped the fabric around the board and bowl where the end of the fabric ended up on the bottom, where it wouldn't show so much, and so that the weight of the display would keep the fabric from coming loose.



6. Then tape or glue your earlier two support triangles to the support rectangle, making a slanted base. Set the display on top and Voila! Your very own cheap display that looks great!!



Here it is displaying a necklace:

So, did I miss any steps? This is my first tute, so let me know what you think!!

Have fun!

Thats a great idea. Just a sugestion but I would paper mache around the bowl and cardboard then paint it, the loose fabric would bother me but im a neat freak.

Excellent! Do you think there would be any way to weight it, say for outdoor fairs?

I would think you could put something heavy in the bowl before you attach it to the base...
