I recently made faux succulent planters and wanted a unique way to display them, and do it on a budget. I came up with the idea for a floating shelf!
Cut about 50 pieces of yarn, each about 1 1/2 yards long. Tie a knot in the center. This will be placed in the center of your wooden plate.
Split this yarn into 4 parts and place the knot on the middle of the wooden plate with each of the 4 parts going in opposite directions. Twist or braid your yarn on all 4 sides.
Find somewhere high to hang it, then tie a big knot at the end of the yarn, bringing it all back together.
