Gift presents for kids: Kokeshi Display tutorial

Hi Everyone! Janis here, from Pinecone Camp. Thought I’d share a pretty simple d.i.y. that I did for a li collection of vintage Kokeshi that I’ve had for years.

I had started out with wanting to display 6 kokeshi, but one had an unfortunate accident. I snapped her head off. Too hard to glue at this time ;) I decided on the sizes of boxes I wanted, and measured out the pieces on a scrap of plywood.

Since I didn’t want this to be too labour intensive (my mind starts to wander at a certain point), I just used wood glue to assemble. After gluing, I snapped on some rubber bands to keep it all together while drying.

I cut the fabric to fit the bottom of the box then, using a little spray glue, attached it to a piece of card board. I wanted it to be easy to switch up back drops, if I decide to display something else….like my collection of deer. You can easily pop out the back drop this way.
