I love hexagons – whether in a honeycomb, on a quilt, or —in this case— as a wall shelf. I have this thing for DIY Home Decor in case you have not heard. Bringing the hexagon trend to your humble abode is easier than you might think. New shelving awaits you in the gift box department of your local Target.
12 hexagonal gift boxes (I got mine at Target, though they’re not sold online)
12 hexagonal mirrored tiles (mine came from Ikea)
12 pieces of double-sided wall mounting tape
Arrange your gift boxes in the pattern of your choice. Remove the lids and set aside for another project.
Remember that you have hexagonal wall mirrors from Ikea that you bought on an impulse and knew you would get around to using someday.
Using double-sided wall mounting tape, attach a gift box to the center of each mirror. Take a picture of the arrangement on your phone to use for reference.
On the wall where you want to mount your shelves, mark the center spot. Start mounting your mirrors to the wall, starting from the center and moving out, looking back at the photo you took if you need to. The Ikea mirrors came with their own wall-mounting stickers.
Fill your groovy new shelves with small trinkets and bask in their glory.
