How To Make A Wreath Craft Show Display or Storage

How to make a wreath craft show display or storage display by SouthernCharmWreaths.com

How to make a wreath craft show display is also a great way to store your wreaths. If you are a fellow wreath maker like me, then I know you crave more storage, crafting space and smarter storage solutions. I want to share with you my idea for storing my wreaths until I sell them. It’s so easy and no tools are required! This display would also be perfect for displaying your wreaths in craft shows; you can easily disassemble and reassemble as needed because this requires no tools. This took me 15 minutes to construct and cost less than $50.  I use four of these in my home which helps, I really need to make more and use only during the busy fall and Christmas seasons.

What you will need

15 Heavy Duty Cable Ties (I used TwistTail 14.5″)

9-12 “S” Hooks (31 cents ea)

Assemble The Base
Line up two of the shelves vertically side by side and use cable ties to secure tightly in 5 places. I secured 1 on the top, 1 in the middle, 1 on the bottom, and then in between those areas for a total of 5 ties.

Side one should look like this.

Now attach the third shelf to the two just connected, again secure in 5 places using cable ties. Note: I attached the cable ties in the same areas all the way around. Your display should now look like this.

Now twist off the excess cable ties.

Hang Your Wreaths
Now you can use the “S” Hooks to loop onto your wreath hangers and attach to the shelving grids. The feet on the bottom of these shelves are already covered with protective coating from the shelving unit itself so it won’t scratch the floors.  I found this display to be very sturdy and level. I was prepared to use a 2′ x 2′ square piece of plywood and drill holes into in order to zip tie the display to that for a stable base, but I don’t need to. It’s sturdy on its own.

Like I said, these would be great for using during craft shows alone or combined with other display methods. If using for a craft show, you should weight the bottom so that the wind doesn’t blow them over.  To anchor the bottom, get a piece of 2′ x 2′ or 3’x3′ plywood and use screw clamps to attach to the wood.

What do you think? I hope this was helpful to you. I store my wreaths on these until they are sold. What are your wreath storage ideas?

Happy Wreathing,

Julie

    Thank you for taking the time to share all of your videos with others. This is such a wonderful idea and one that I will certainly use immediately! God bless you for using your gifts to help others.

    Julie this is brilliant 🙂 This will be perfect for when I move to my mom’s and turn her basement into a work space.

      I love this idea. I purchased a home in January and I plan to use this idea in my garage.

  3. Rhonda on August 14, 2013 at 10:33 pm

    What a wonderful idea! And I actually have some of these that were leftover from a closet organizer that didn’t quite fit right. LOL!

  4. Lisandra on September 7, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    Love this! Do you think it would work as a four panel display to be used as a wall backdrop/divider?

    • Julie Siomacco on September 17, 2013 at 11:29 am

      If the wreaths were not as wide or the shelves were wider, it should.

    I finally was in a craft fair on Oct. 19, 2013. I had 10 deco mesh wreaths since it was a small one. I used your idea using the medal shelves. Great idea. I only sold 4 of my wreaths. I was pleased being my first fair.

  6. Angela Thomas on February 5, 2014 at 11:32 am

    This is such a great ideal. I wished I would have came across this during the Christmas Holidays. I will be using in them for the spring. Thanks so much Julie you are truly a blessing to me and many others

    My husband made these same displays for me to use at Craft Shows and they work wonderfully.
    I also use these displays for storing my wreaths.

  10. Theresa Tolliver on March 28, 2014 at 12:27 am

    Thank you Julie for sharing your ideal for the displays. I have a craft show in April and I was needing something to display my wreaths on. I didn’t know what I was going to do so Julie you saved me a lot of worry. Thank You so much for your helpful advice.

  11. Suzan on November 6, 2014 at 3:21 pm

    Julie,

    Thanks for the great idea for displaying wreaths at a craft fair. What do you store the wreaths in for transportation to the craft fair? That is my biggest concern.

    Thanks,
    Suzan

      Susan,,
      I know it has been a long time since you left this questions but , what is the answer to transporting the wreaths to the Craft store? This is my first? Thanks, Nancy

  12. Shannon Stocks on November 11, 2014 at 12:14 pm

    Julie,

    How would you secure these to the ground for an outside event?

    Oh, BTW this was/is a genius idea.

    Thank you,
    Shannon

  13. Debbie on January 1, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    What a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing. I was looking for someway to display my wreaths and this is perfect. You are so creative and your wreaths are absolutely beautiful. I love the Easter decor you used in the Easter wreaths. Is your place of purchase available for the public? Thank you again for sharing!

  14. Gladys on July 8, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    Hi Julie

    Thank you for sharing your creative ways to display wreaths.

    I purchased the shelves in white and connected them, but I only did two.
    I will be in a craft show July 18? 2015 I. Kings Mountain, NC

    Again your wreaths are stunning

    will be involved in my first craft show August 28, 2015…and having been looking
    For some way to display my wreaths. Thank you for sharing. Amazing, as always,
    Thanks Julie.
    Love your ebooks and your updates.

  16. Cathy shaw on April 13, 2016 at 12:15 am

    I use a wooden dowel or pipe hanging from wire supports from the ceiling to store my wreaths on at home. (Just like a curtain rod). You have helped me solve how to display my wreaths. Great idea and thank you

  17. Carol on November 28, 2016 at 9:02 am

    I can’t wait to try this great idea!!! I have a craft show 12-3 in Sparta N.C. I can’t wait to try this!!! I was so worried about space! Thank you for this wonderful idea!

  18. LaFawne on December 23, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    I made a four sided one to use in my craft room for storage of my own holiday wreaths. Thanks for the idea!

  19. Lynda on August 5, 2018 at 12:44 pm

    Here it is August 2018, and you continue to be a valuable resource! Thanks! I
    m just planning to participate in my first craft show in December, any new thoughts>

  20. Pam on October 2, 2018 at 3:19 pm

    This is a wonderful idea, I love it for an inside craft show. You are amazing Julie! Thanks so much.

  21. Marji Lane on November 1, 2018 at 2:08 pm

    Thank you for this great idea! I’m getting ready to try to sell my first group of wreaths at a small craft fair for the first time. This solves my problem of how to display them vertically in a small area without taking up a lot of space. Where can I buy the Closet Made shelves?

    • Nancy W Smith on December 2, 2018 at 8:46 am

      Marji
      I found mine at Lowes and it cost about $45 total. Very easy to
      assemble. I’m trying to figure out the best way to get my wreaths
      to the craft show. How are you doing that?
      Thanks, Nancy

      • PR on September 12, 2019 at 5:37 pm

        The first year we did a craft show we put each wreath in white garbage bags & carried them in that way. This way we already had bags for them & they are super light. Last year we still used the bags but put into a 35L bucket. We are going back to just the bags. Much less to try to hide.

  22. Linda on October 31, 2019 at 12:03 pm

    love it, thank you. my daughter just started her business and she is doing a show.
