4 Creative Ways to Display Your Collections
Personal collections are things that you desire, so don’t hide them. Here are unique ways to put them proudly on display!
From collecting photographs to keeping an array of stylish hats, we each have our own personal collections. The challenge has always been how to keep them organized and stashed neatly.
If you're feeling extra creative and want to add a couple of accents to your space, you may choose to put your collections on display. Here are 4 kinds of collections and how you can put them out there for everyone to see and appreciate.

Fill up an empty wall with your charming hat collection. Using sturdy wall-mounted hooks or pegs, create a downward line with your hats. Remember to keep the arrangement just high enough so you can still reach the topmost piece. Display hats in varied textures for a more playful appeal.
Create a handmade photo label for your camera collection by framing simple line drawings of each camera. You can search the web for drawings or silhouettes of cameras, then print them out. Set your pieces on top of a ledge or a table. These labels will designate where the cameras will go after you use them. You may also organize your photos by neatly stashing them in drawers.
Check the back of your kitchen cabinets for empty jars. Use these jars as dainty storage for your button collection. Segregate buttons by color, size, or make. Display your loot on your work table for easy reach while crafting, or on your console for everyone to appreciate.
Extra tip: Jars in uniform shapes or sizes make for a more organized display. Re-use old coffee or tea canisters for this purpose.
Dedicate a few shelves in a room for your decorative plates and ceramic ware. Stick to a color scheme for a put-together look, and store away pieces that wouldn’t fit the palette. Equally distribute both colored and white elements to balance the display.
Extra tips: If you have limited shelf space, dedicate an occasional table to hold your plate collection. You may also tilt the bowls or randomly stack teacups for a more carefree vibe.
