Hanging Circular Shelf

5 Materials
1 Hour
We got a little crafty in our office bathroom, again. This time around, we created a crazy simple hanging shelf to add interest to our space. I love how it turned out because it’s simplicity lent so much to it’s form. Keeping the elements raw, the shelf took on a fun BOHO vibe that only was accentuated when we decided to use it to display some of our happy succulents. You have gotta love a project that is inexpensive, whips up in a snap, and makes a room feel furnished. Win-win-win!!

  • 12″ wooden disk (mine was purchased at Ace Hardware)
  • drill
  • sisal rope
  • old hook hardware
  • 1 screw hook
Start by drilling three holes in the disk, making sure to keep them equally spaced for balance.
The length of rope you cut depends on how low you desire your shelf to hang from the ceiling.  I chose to cut mine about three feet long.
Insert a piece of rope down into one of the drilled holes and pull it up to tie it off.  Repeat this for all three holes.
Bring all three pieces of rope up to a centered apex.
Wrap them through your hardware and tie them off.  This may take a little fussing in order to keep things balanced and straight.
Now, simply install the screw top hook into your ceiling and hang your new shelf!
Cute as a button, if you as me.
Happy crafting!

    That is really cute. We were thinking of making 2 for side tables by our bed. Love this idea. Thank you for sharing.
