Like a lot of crafty folks doing shows I’ve cobbled together a lot of displays over the years. Here’s one for displaying bracelets!
You’ll need: a pool noodle, cut into segments (mine are 8″ or 20cm long). A hot glue gun, a box cutter or utility knife, fabric scraps to cover the pool noodle pieces
Step 1.The pool noodle chunk on the left has had the bottom quarter cut off of it. This mades it a little smaller (so my bracelets fit around it if I want) and a little less roll-y. You can leave yours round but I cut the bottoms off all of mine.
Step 2. From your fabric scraps you’ll want to cut a piece that is a little longer than your pool noodle and a little wider than the length around the noodle. My fabric pieces ended up being 12″ by x 10″ (30cm x 25cm).
Step 3. Run a neat glue line and press the first edge of material down into it.
Step 4. Roll the noodle neatly in the material and run another glue line along where the second edge will go. Press the second edge neatly. Trim threads and glue strings.
Step 5. Tuck the ends into the pool noodle center or trim, fold and glue down or both. I plan on sticking fancy buttons to cover the ends so for now… just tucked.
Step 6. Ends all tucked.
Step 7. The first batch of bracelet logs or displays. I want more. I have fabric but lacking in pool noodles.
One of the displays in action!
Pool noodle hint: these are FABULOUS for holding tools like sharps and knitting needles. Cut yourself a chunk, shove it into a mason jar and stick pointy things in it. Voila!
