How to make Mini Copper Pipe Shelves?
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 a more durable support backing.
Here are my cut coasters and the cardboard backing ready for assembly.
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.
My oh my, I quickly fell in love with these three little shelves.
- Start by cutting your circular cork coasters in half. They may be a little flimsy, so you can then trace the coaster onto some cardboard to act as supportive backing.
- Using a hot glue gun, secure the cork and cardboard together. Then, make a little mark on the under side (on the cardboard) as to where your copper pipe bends would sit. A little hot glue was applied to hold copper in place.
- If you want a little bit of color, you may add some washi tape to the top of each shelf.
- Hang your completed Mini Copper Shelves in your home and enjoy!
