one of the easiest craft fair ring displays imaginable and other great DIY ring display ideas

One of the new craft fair lines that I'm developing for 2012 is button rings.  If you've spent any time browsing jewelry on Etsy, you have probably seen some type of button ring.  They are fun, relatively easy and inexpensive to make, and completely fitting with my product lines.

As I'm developing my new craft fair lines this year, I'm considering product displays as I go.  As many of you know, creating the items is only a tiny part of the selling process.  I do not want to have lots of products and no way to display them when I start up with shows again.  Creating a hair pin display was one of my first projects.  Obtaining a ring display was one of my next projects.


This is just simply a great idea that I got through Pintrest.  I did absolutely no creating for this.  You can decorate it as you like, though I will most likely leave it as is and simply add a price sign to the bottom.

I'm sure that some of you already know what this is, but for those of you who don't sew, it's a bobbin rack.  You can hang them on the wall or stand them up on any flat surface.  They come in all different sizes.  This is the second smallest one that they had at Jo-Ann.  They're also available online.  It holds 30 bobbins (or rings).  The rings are small enough that you could easily stack multiples on each peg.  For my shows, this should be plenty sufficient.  All of the bobbin racks were 40% off when I went to Jo-Ann, which meant that this only $6.  You can't beat that.


This was the idea that originally inspired me.


Of course there are a number of other great DIY/simply very inventive (like the one I used) ring display ideas on Pintrest, too.  Here are a few of my favorites.


How creative is this?  If you don't like the look of the natural egg containers, you could easily spray paint or decorate them.

  4. Great collection of display ideas! I love that one at the bottom with the beans, but yours is awesome since it's got that height advantage.

  5. What a clever idea! I kind of like it painted (although perhaps not hot pink!) -- but then, on the other hand, I like the look of natural wood. Hmmm. But best of all are your cute rings!

  6. This is SO cool! As someone who doesn't sew, I didn't even know they made such a thing! This is so perfect...and so is the price. Of course I'm sure you know I think you should paint it pink :)

    The egg carton is a great idea too! And you can just close the lid and you're ready to pack up!

  11. These are all great ideas. I like the bobbin rack the best. I think painted either black or a neutral color. These would display your rings nicely.

  14. I really like the look of the egg carton, the rock one, and Jenny's for ring displays. They are all unique and fun and would definitely stand out in a show.

    I made button rings last year and the tweens loved them! What a nice addition to your offering.

  15. These are really clever ideas! I have some of those spool racks, and hadn't thought about using it for display of other items. As I think about it, it would work for my crocheted flower brooches...you can just slip the pinback over the pegs!
