Hanging shelf
duration: 0:0:32

A hanging shelf is an elegant alternative to a night stand, perfect for keeping books, journals, and even your alarm clock close at hand when you head to bed at night.

You will need:

  • Slice of a tree stump
  • Ball of white yarn
  • Scissors
  • Resene paintbrushes
  • Large wooden beads
  • Resene testpots in Resene Pink Terrace, Resene Unwind, Resene Wishlist and Resene Quarter Gargoyle

Step one. Taking the tree slice, paint it completely using Resene Pink Terrace – one layer should cover it while also allowing the beautiful wood grains to show through.

Step two. Paint the wooden beads. We’ve used Resene Unwind, Resene Wishlist and Resene Quarter Gargoyle. Leave to dry.

Step three. To make the holder, you will need four sections of yarn. Cut 40 pieces at the length you’d like the shelf to hang. We used 1.5m lengths of yarn.

Step four. Divide the pieces into four sections (ten pieces of yarn each). Tie the sections together at the top with a knot.

Step five. With one of the sections, wind the pieces of yarn together to create one thicker piece. Repeat for the other three sections.

Step six. Knot at the bottom at the height that you’d like the shelf to sit.

Step seven. Hang the yarn holder from the ceiling – we used a copper hook – and carefully place the painted tree stump within the sections. You might need to adjust it a few times to help it hang evenly.

Step eight. To finish, thread the beads at the bottom, securing with a knot for each one.
