5 Budget-friendly Displays to Showcase Your Jewelry

Showcase your wholesale fashion jewelry and attract more customers for less without looking cheap!

One problem with DIY displays is the risk of looking cheap. But with the right materials and a steady flow of creative juices, you can make your them look elegant and expensive. Some do not require a lot of time as well and are easy to create. With that said, here are five of our favorite DIY jewelry displays you can make for your jewelry shop or for the next craft show.

Egg carton

Don't throw those egg cartons away, upcycle them. According to Kathy of Merriment Design, you can make ring holders out of them. Simply cut the pointy separator and cut the sides to adjust the size as they tend to be too big. Cut off an egg holder and glue the pointy separator onto it. Use acrylic paint to put on a color of your choice.

Teacups and saucers

Old China cups look great as jewelry display as they give off a vintage vibe. You may opt to buy inexpensive ones if you don't have any. There are plastic teacups in stores that could pass as ceramics, and they look great as well. All you have to do is create a "teacup sculpture" like in the photo from Thinking Closet. Here you can showcase earrings, rings, bracelets, and even chokers.

Old bottles

Probably the most inexpensive one, old bottles make great jewelry displays, just as what Lindsay of Tru Frugal Crafter did. All you have to do is remove the label and clean them thoroughly. Get different sizes and colors, but make sure that the bottle color complements the colors of your wholesale fashion jewelry. Otherwise, they might look trashy and cheap.

Believe it or not, office supplies look great in craft shows too. You can use old clipboards to hold necklaces and hang them on the wall. They're absolutely space-saving and efficient and allows for easy removal. Brown boards like that in the photo look great for vintage-themed displays, while white ones or those with bold colors look great for minimalist and modern themes.

Lastly, the clotheslines in your backyard have potential too. This DIY display is also space-saving, and look beautiful in craft shows. Use wooden clothespins to clip the jewelry pieces to add an earthy feel to it. This display is perfect for earrings and rings. You may place bracelets and necklaces here too, just allow a wide space between the clotheslines so that pieces won't get tangled with one another.
