You could hang your round floating shelves opposite a feature wall, using the feature wallpaper to line the tins. Check out my blog post to find out how to adhere paper to a non stick surface. What will you use as weights to keep the paper flat whilst it dries?

    you could also use 3M tape or apply a magnet on the wall, depending on the weight you want to put in them.
