First, I found this wrought iron thingamabob at Goodwill for $3. I'm not sure what its original use was (some kind of candleholder, maybe?), and I'm probably using it upside down, but the three curls at the "top" seemed perfect for hanging the three different sizes of headbands that I sell at childrens' stores.
All I did to this one was take three of my postcards and stick them together in a triangle, then I made a top out of cardstock so that you couldn't look into the middle, then used a glue gun to tack the postcards to the top of the display. Since the headbands are just hanging, I thought it was important to have at least a picture of how they look on a head, hence the postcards.
But, I am in six stores now, and the chances of finding five more of these things were pretty slim. I did find one more candleholder to flip upsidedown for a similar effect:
|I spray-painted it black and evened out the display card before it was ready to go out.|
The only problem with these was that the lowest rungs for hanging mugs were too close to the base for a headband. So I removed those, and plugged the hole with a combo of hot glue topped with plastic wood.
|The bottom pegs twisted out fairly easily.|
|Plugged hole, ready to be sanded.|
|With and without product.|
