Craft Fair Props

Last year I used paper mache’ mannequins to display my jewelry at holiday craft fairs.  The mannequins were eye catching and worked perfectly for displaying both jewelry and scarves.    A huge advantage is that they are very lightweight to carry.  Trust me, if you have to carry your props and supplies a long distance, weight is everything. And here’s the best part:  they’re so cheap to make (brown paper bags and glue).  I used book pages as my last layer and printed a crown for the front.  I finished by added a few rhinestones, jewels, and a ribbon around the neck.  If you want to give your mannequin an antique look, spray it lightly with Walnut Ink.
