Wood (Poplar, 5 1/2 x 24)
Drill bit (match the size to your cord/rope)
Gold macrame hoop, 2 inch
Trim wood to appropriate size. The shelf featured here is 5.5 inches x 17 inches. Sand edges. Drill holes using appropriate size drill bit.
Lightly sand drilled holes.
Cut two pieces of cording, 3 to 4 feet. Thread one piece up through the holes on the left side, and then the other cord through the holes on the right, pulling the cording up from the bottom.
Pull the left and right sides of the cording to meet evenly at the top. Loop the four pieces of cording through the metal ring.
Determine how long you want your shelf to hang from the gold ring. Secure the cording onto the ring using hot glue. Fold the cording over the ring and glue.
Take two pieces of the cording and wrap around the other two pieces of cording. You will wrap around four or five times.
Trim the ends of the rope that you wrapped around the other cording.
