Default Craft Show displaying headbands

Hello -
I need some ideas on how to display my headbands and beanies. I've looked for some child sized mannequin heads but can't seem to find any. I don't want to just have them in a package, I want them to be nicely displayed to attract more fair goers to stop. My first craft fair is the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving so I need to act on this quickly.

Any ideas are welcome - including ideas on displaying my merchandise.

Thank you,
Linda

Also of ladies just use the foam women heads from Sally's. I've also seen baby dolls used, etc. You can also buy the smaller styrofoam balls and cover them with something and stick them on a dowel. Covered oatmeal cans work well, too. Just take a look around your house.
My first show...I used an industrial sized plastic wrap roll! I covered it with velvet and it worked out great.

I have a styrofoam ball and cut it in half and stuck it on a black metal candle holder.

I display my kufi's on a styrofoam ball attaching a top a dowel. I actually have four of them set to different heights and I display two toddler and two infant hats on the display. The inventory is then placed in baskets right next to the display. The 5" balls work well for the toddler hats and the 4" balls work well with the infant hats. Don't remove the plastic so you can easily place the hat on the ball.

For the baby headbands, I use my shipping boxes (which are rather small and rectangular). I have two of them stacked tall on top of each other and then I can fit at least 7 headbands around them. I made a few of these displays so I can show a lot of them on display.

Hope this helps. :-)

For headbands, I've seen a wide cup that was decorated. I use something from Southern Living at Home actually--it's a plant holder thing. It's called the "Rosedale Plant Holder" I put all of my Christmas headbands half in/half out to display them. I use the large one of the two that comes in the set. (no, I don't sell Southern Living things!!)

I also have a black iron narrow stand that neatly stands next to my table. It is hard to describe and I just happened upon it when a local business shut down. I don't have pics of it, but when I do, I will try to post!

Good luck!
Amy

I made my own display out of styrofoam balls, a couple dowels, a styrofoam block and some fabric.

I have also seen the heads at hobby lobby for $5-8 each.
