This idea would be good to display you craft on the vertical surface on the level of customers eyes (hats, jewlery, usw)
I would appreciate any other ideas how to improve it. For example, how to secure hats on the board - I just have to pin them right now.

What I did:

1. I bough a big piece of foam board and cut it in 3. Here is 1/3 of the original board:

2. I bought the cheapest fabric in Walmart and made cases for each piece of board (like pillow cases) with strings on the top. You can make strings on the side too, to be able to tie boards to each other when it is windy.

Ooh, good idea! How big are the foam board pieces?

That is a good idea... is it a problem when it gets windy, though?

Maybe you could use drapery hooks - they should poke through the fabric and into the foam core pretty easily, then you could hang stuff on the hooks.

The size of each of three boards is 32x48 inches, so the board originally was 96x48 inches. You can cut them as big (or small) as you want. Jewlery people cut them smaller...

is it a problem when it gets windy, though?
Well, the last time I used these boards, was windy, and I did not have those 'pillow cases', so I could not hang them, and they kept falling. It was misirable.

Now I made'pillow cases', I put strings on the sides, so I can tie them to each other and to the tent. And I think, they will be fine if I put walls on the tent. The walls will protect board from wind.

Hi, I'm new, just browsing through, but you could stick hooks in the board for hats or necklaces...Just a thought Grin
