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.

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.

  1. 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.

  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 🙂
