Yesterday we stayed home, the kids vegged out and I worked on the dreaded craft fair pricing and packaging. Every time I tell myself I’ll price and package as I make the stuff and every time I wait until the last-minute, why? I think it is because I hate deciding on a price. I know what I think my stuff is worth but at the same time I want to price it to sell. As I was pondering this I noticed an old frame that I decided could be up-cycled into a display board, here is how it turned out (it’s hanging on the wall behind my sewing machine)
It is cuter in real life;) I have a few of these frames kicking around because I also do custom framing and I had ordered some frames in for a customer and they had gouges on the side so the company replaced them but did not want the frames back. They came with a plywood backing board so I decopauged old book pages (don’t freak out, The librarian gave them to me because they were going to be tossed in the dumpster) on it and let it dry:
After the decaupague glue was dry I secured the backer board in the frame. I had a bucket of wooden spools that were given to me years ago and I thought they would be great for hanging a necklace or bracelet on. I placed them on the board in staggered rows and decided on placement.
When I was happy with the spacing I hot glued the spools in place. Ta-da! This is plenty rugged to hold jewelry for my craft fair display and if I keep it hanging in my craft room it will be easy to price and hang a piece of jewelry up there when i make it, yeah right!
I love that this project serves a purpose and was absolutely free to me! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
