Handy Display Prop for Photography for CHEAP!
I recently have started making jewelry, and wanted a nice way to display each piece on my Etsy shop once completed.

There are so many ideas for cute displays online using re-purposed materials. However, I don't have the right tools, furniture pieces, or room re-create some of the spectacular DIY ideas.

So, here is a super simple, quick, and cheap way to make your own faux jewelry display prop out of simple things you have around the house.

  • How to make a jewelry display. Photography Jewelry Display - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather Your Supplies!

    All you will need is:
    - Some sturdy cardboard (I used the top of a pizza box).
    - Something to draw your template with.
    - Sharp scissors or a crafting blade.
    - Duct-tape (You could probably use any kind of tape if you use enough).
    - Scrap fabric.

    Start out by drawing a silhouette of a jewelry stand (neck, shoulders and chest) with your pen, onto the cardboard.

    Using your cutting tool of choice, carefully cut out your stand. Using a piece of scrap cardboard, duct tape it to the back to make a stand

    *** Optional: If your jewelry is particularly heavy, I've found that using a picture/book stand helps the display stand up to the weight without falling over.

    Trim off excess fabric, leaving about an inch or so around, and carefully fold & tuck, then tape around your silhouette to secure the fabric in place.

    Don't worry about the back being pretty!

    *** Optional: If you don't have fabric, you could always use your favorite scrapbook paper, and fold it around. If you use glue instead of tape with paper, use a glue stick. Paste glue might soak through and be visible in macro pictures.
