Dignitet display






Materials:
3 dignitet curtain wire kits

Description:
As a frantic hoarder of tickets, postcards and other bits of general stuff, I was looking for a practical, attractive way to display (and rotate) treaured mementos.

The Dignitet curtain wire system provided the perfect solution. Simple.

    Kudos Shel! This is one my favorites in a while…especially since I’m like you and just CANNOT let go of anything that makes me feel the least bit sentimental. My problem is that I don’t think I’d be very good at rotating my trinkets; I’d probably just end up adding more wires :-p

    after submitting this, i did a quick google search and realise now that this is far from an original idea! still, such a simple and fun display should be shared me thinks.

    jennie, we are yet to see how well the plan to rotate works; so far, i have just added. ah well, we have plenty of wall height to go skywards! :0)

    Great idea. I love this system in general.

    The only problem I’ve noticed with this system (I just did this two weeks ago!), was the clips imprint the postcards slightly.

  5. love it! this would be so great for kids’ art projects!

    If you get some of those crafty foam shapes and put them between the clip and the postcard, that might help

    Speaking of clips, where did you find the clips? Are they an IKEA item?

  8. shel says:

    the curtain ring clips are also ikea, part of the dignitet system.

  9. Great idea! I was looking for a way to display our kids’ art work and was thinking frames but I like this idea much better.
