My DD's class at school are making advent calendars for sale at the Christmas Fair at the end of Nov. They will be A4 thin card, 25 of them.
I am racking my brains to think of a way of displaying them other than flat on a table, we could add hanging loops to them, but how to hang them, without spending much/any money on racks. Has anyone got any suggestions? Thank you.
Could you make a rack out of cardboard? Am thinking long thin triangle shape, calendars lean up against it. Would have to have lip at bottom to stop calendars slipping down. How about pegging them to said bit of cardboard? Or, you know a picture frame has that thing at the back so you can prop it up if you don't want to hang it, something like that made of cardboard? Or hang from say a bit of dowell, maybe cane that you use to prop up plants, then would need way to hang up cane.... HTH!
Thank you, I think a combination of some flat and some propped up is the way to go, so the big cardboard rack with some on it and some in front would be a good way to go.
I was thinking about the dowelling idea, as you say it's working out how to prop up the dowelling. Anything we do will need to be fairly robust as the room is packed and the tables get jostled and knocked.
That might be good, we have got some felt notice boards in the hall. I have got loads of curved bamboo plant supports in the garden shed, am thinking I could do something with these too. Thank you both for your ideas!
