How to make a craft fair display
Do you remember the vintage screen door I repurposed for my upcoming craft show? I will display it atop a table to showcase my Etsy signs. It will be tall, so I needed something else to take up the rest of the room on the table. I made this display that folds flat for storage and transporting.
What you’ll need:
- 1×2’s (cut to size)
- Kreg Jig
- pocket hole screws
- clamps (optional)
- Gorilla Wood Glue
- staple gun & staples
- chicken wire
- paint & paint brush
I cut my boards, then used my Kreg Jig® K4 to drill the pocket holes. I generally use my Kreg Jig Jr, but with my bum shoulder, I find it easier to use this jig clamped to my work surface. Set your Kreg Jig to the thickness of your boards, in this case 3/4”.
In case you don’t know, you choose the length of your Stainless Steel Pocket-Hole Screws according to the thickness of your wood. My boards are 3/4” which means I use these 1 1/4” screws. (I use fine or coarse depending on what I have on hand, fine threads are for hard woods)
TThis corner fit really tight so it was easy to glue and secure it.
After painting the frames I attached the chicken wire with my staple gun. (no pictures)
Each of my sections is 2’x3’.
I found some curly ornament hooks when I cleaned out the craft storage room. They seem to work really well on the chicken wire, and don’t fall off as easily as the “s” hooks do.
Here are my other two display pieces:
Do you do craft shows? If so, what do you use to display your wares?
