Homemade earring "cards"

After I created the cowboy hat necklace displays, I needed to create something to display the earrings. I found the same cowboy hats that I used in the display, in a smaller 2 inch size. Using a corncob skewer, I poked two holes in the rim. Done!

I love them and they are perfect for my "handmade in Texas" jewelry!

Cool looking easy to make display

I'll be expanding my store booth (at Under One Roof) next month. This means I need more displays. I looked at the jewelry supply stores, but all the busts, etc. look similar and can be costly (especially when adding shipping charges).

Today I was walking around Hobby Lobby and saw the cutest little (5 inch) Cowboy hats. They were in the doll making section.

I let my creativity run, and within 10 minutes I had created an adorable display for my necklaces.

I've decided to share the information with you. So, here is how I created these adorable displays.
(Warning: This was a pain to format with the blog editor, so I can't guarantee how it looks.)

These are the materials I used:
  • The little cowboy hat.
  • A small doll stand.
  • A piece of felt.

I covered the doll stand with the piece of felt.

Place the cowboy hat on top to secure the felt.

I've now got some super cool inexpensive (less than $3.50 each) necklace displays!
