"Brilliant!" I thought. What a great idea! I asked if she would email me some photos so I could see them and share. And she did!
Thank you, Faye, for sending in these photos and allowing me to share your awesome idea. Wishing you every success at your very first craft show :)
If you'd like to make a jewelry display like this, start by drawing your heart shape on a piece of foam posterboard. If you don't want to freehand it, my tutorial shows you how to draw a perfectly symmetrical heart very easily!
Cut around the heart shape carefully with a craft knife.
Choose your fabric - felt, velvet, or anything you like! and make sure you have plenty of excess fabric overlapping all the edges - at least 5 inches. Attach the fabric to the heart using hot glue, stretching it tight as you go around the edges.
You can always trim off extra after the glue is set firmly. If you'd like to cover the back completely, you can cut another piece of fabric using the heart as a template, and just glue that on top of the folded over fabric.
You can cut and attach a triangular shaped piece of foamboard to the back as a stand, but something sturdier like a wooden or metal bracket might be better, especially for an outdoor show where wind might be a concern.
Thanks again, Faye, for sharing your process and your beautiful jewelry! I love these necklaces and I think they look great on this display :)
