A rope shelf can be a stylish and functional addition to any room in your home, but you’re not limited to just one on your wall. Wall hanging rope shelves allow you to add shelves around your space as you need them, and the more shelves you have, the better! Here are 10 wall hanging rope shelf ideas that will inspire you to get creative with your shelf display.
1) Wall Mounted Jewelry Organizer
For a decorative solution that doubles as organizational, hang a wall-mounted jewelry organizer. Not only will it keep your studs and necklaces easy to find, but it’ll give you some extra display space in your bedroom.
2) Double Tiered Wall Shelf
Using simple knotting skills you can build a wall shelf with two tiers. Mounted to a bare wall, it’s sure to lend charm and personality to any room. It’s a great DIY project for do-it-yourselfers who want to try their hand at rope work but don’t have much experience in knot tying. From start to finish, it will take you about an hour and cost approximately $20.
3) Succulent Rope Shelves
This project requires a 2-inch diameter, 6 feet long piece of plastic tubing (which can be purchased at most hardware stores for about $4). When you’re finished, it will be a wall-mounted shoe rack. The tubes are easy to cut, so if your shoes don’t fit on one level, just add another tube to give them more height.
4) Wooden Crate Wall Shelf
Succulents are a unique and attractive way to decorate your shelves, adding an interesting plant look without all of the hassle. To create these hanging rope shelves, hang three or four old nails in a straight line along a wall. Then gather some type of soft rope (you can find it at most craft stores) and tie succulent cuttings to each nail by wrapping them around at least twice.
4) Ladder Wall Rope Shelves
If you’re looking for an easy wall hanging rope shelf that also looks beautiful, a ladder shelf is an option. Here’s how to make one: First, take two pieces of wood. The same width as your shelves, and nail them across each other. Then string up some rope between the two pieces and staple it in place. Finally, hang your pots and pans!
6) Mason Jar Wall Mounted Shelf
To make your mason jar wall shelf, you will need a mason jar and some rope. You can either buy or find these items at local craft stores. The amount of rope used depends on how large you want your shelf to be. Cut the rope into long, equal pieces; attach one end of each piece to a mason jar using glue or a small nail; tie knots in each of your strings so that you can use them as hooks for hanging necklaces, bracelets and keychains.
7) Clothespins Turned into a Wall Shelf
A simple clothespin can turn into a wall hanging rope shelf. This project is also budget-friendly, as you can use recyclable or spare items. It’s an easy do-it-yourself (DIY) project that you can work on while watching TV. Make sure to hang your DIY wall hanging rope shelf in your bedroom or living room so that it looks good and makes your space look more organized.
8) Macrame Wall Rope Shelf
Macrame is an ancient decorative craft that requires hand-weaving. If you have some old macrame ropes lying around, you can use them to create wall shelves for your home. The steps are simple: all you need to do is hammer a nail into a wall, loop your rope over it, and keep weaving until there’s enough space for stuff to sit on top of it.
9) Kitchen Towel Holder
Simple to make, and looks great. The great thing about wall-mounted shelves is that they double as towel holders and can be mounted in both kitchens and bathrooms. The only tool you need is a drill to create holes for screws. Just make sure to leave room between them (about 2 inches) so they don’t get in each other’s way when hanging towels on them.
10) Nail Into Something Attached to the Wall
Don’t just hammer your nails into random wood and think it will hold. Figure out where you want your shelves to go and what you plan on putting on them first, then measure that area against a piece of scrap wood to make sure you have enough room for each shelf. Once you do, mark where your nails need to go and hammer accordingly! This is a great time saver if you are planning on making multiple shelves.
