I am in my second year of doing craft shows. I work with my friend from Simply Smith Crafty Creations. She works with yarn and I mainly work with fabric (and some crayons) so it works out really well! All of my items are for sale as well..I’m working on setting up an Etsy store.
We were getting ready for our first show of the season. I started making head bands (elastic and tie). Then I added hair scrunchies. I forgot how cute those were. I wore them all the time, and they are perfect my little girl. She is all about pig tails so great way to dress them up or be festive.
I wanted a way to display them that would be neat, but show all of the styles at once. I also needed a display for the headbands (will have a How to on that soon).
My new favorite craft supply is PVC pipe. Last year I bought a bunch of 1/2 inch pipe, capes, T’s, and elbows for my Cub Scouts. They made them into pom pom shooting guns..big hit!
I went to my local Ace and browsed around. Grabbed some pieces that looked like would work. Later I bought this Valspar spray paint at Lowe’s. “Micromist” means you better cover a LARGE area!! I have a pink garage floor now.I also used my handy dandy PVC pipe cutters. I love love these…so much better than using a saw!!! When you use a saw there are rough edges you have to sand..no fun. We use PVC a lot in Cub Scouts to make neckerchief slides..sanding sucks!
A little thinking and some cuts later I had my Hair Scrunchy display made. A few coats of spray paint and it was show ready. Check out the short video at the bottom to see how easy it is!
I spent just over $6 (after tax) on the PVC for this. The spray paint I can’t remember, but want to say between $4-5 but that was used on both PVC displays.
What you need:
1- 1/2″ PVC Cross
4- 1/2″ PVC Elbows
4- 1/2″ PVC 13″ Pieces
4- 1/2″ PVC 3″ Pieces
4- 1/2″ PVC End Caps
Spray Paint (type that says it’s suitable for plastic)
None of the pieces are glued or cemented. I want to be able to take apart and store.
Attach the 4 3″ pieces to the Cross. Attach an Elbow to each of those (pointing up). Attach the 13″ pieces to the Elbows and top with caps.
That’s it..easy and looks great! It is a little tall and I didn’t have enough scrunchies to fill it, so feel free to adjust the heights.
You know what was even better? I bought two foam heads at Sally Beauty Supply ($4.19 each) and they have a hold in the bottom. That fits on top of the Hair Scrunchy holder. Great for displaying some headbands.
