DIY Floating Shelf

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!

First I created my little succulent planters.

Then I picked up a round wooden plate from Home Depot, and grabbed my yarn and scissors.

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.

Carefull place your board in the middle of all the yarn, making sure it's level.

    I did this when macramé was popular...way back when. *sigh* Too old to remember, but it's a great idea!

    you could get a plant hanger and just measure the size of the plate to make it would fit
