Copper Pipe Shelves

Sometimes ideas pop in your head at the least expected time.  I had bought these awesome Copper Pipe Hooks and they sat in my garage for weeks/months.  Suddenly yesterday I was like, “SHELF!”  And that my friends, is how the creative craziness starts in my head.  Today I am really excited to share my Copper Pipe Shelves with you.

Supplies:
The first thing I did was cut my cork coasters in half.  They were a little flimsy, so I traced the coaster onto some cardboard to act as support backing.

I then used hot.glue to secure the cork and cardboard.  Then, I made a little mark on the under side as to where my copper pipe bends would sit.  A little hot.glue was applied.

I decided I wanted a little bit of color, so I added some washi tape to the top of each shelf.

These are small little shelves, only 6″ in height so they can’t hold a ton of weight but I thought they were a perfect little air plant holder!

This was such a quick and simple DIY project and I’m glad I’ve finally joined the copper trend.  Don’t worry, I’m not giving up my gold love, but a little copper added to the mix is always a good thing.
Have you joined the copper trend yet?  What have you made with it?

  1. I’m making these when I move for our apartment…they would be great for my keys, sun glasses, and other little things I don’t ever leave home without. I’m thinking of putting them by the front door for sure…great idea 🙂
