Headband Display!

Last week, I was contacted by a children's consignment store via facebook who told me that they wanted to sell my headbands.  Flattering!  I checked out their website and asked some questions, and I will be bringing some inventory over there later this week.  Once my stuff is officially there, I will post details--but good news for you west-siders--you won't have to come over the bridge to buy my headbands any more!

SO, I needed to make a display for the new store.  I made similar displays for the headbands for sale at Piccolina.  Criteria?  Shows the headbands, costs me next to nothing.  Here's what I came up with.

EDITED--I still think these displays are cute, but after having them out in stores for a while, I realized that they make it hard for customers to get at the headbands, since they have to work them over other bands to get them off.  I think they may actually hold people back from buying.  I'm using a different display I made out of thrifted materials and spray paint now, and it's working much better!

 Supplies:  Oatmeal container, bamboo skewers, felt, hot glue, and a display card. (cost about $1 to get the color copy on cardstock.)

Here's where I started to worry that it looked like a roll of paper towels.


I think it's okay once the bands are on though, right?
So, what do you think?  Keep the white?  Recover with black?

Also, I'm considering doing craft shows in the future, so if you have old oatmeal containers lying around, send them my way!

  1. Oh my goodness, Beth! This is perfect! I love it - keep the white - it sets off the headbands nicely. I'm already saving my oatmeal boxes for you. :)
