DIY Copper Magazine Display

DIY Copper Magazine Rack @themerrythoughtWe’re finally caught up on emails around here and feeling a lot better and more focused! Now I’m busy getting all packed up for a week up at the lake! Before I head out, I want to share how to make this super simple magazine rack. It’s a simple way to put those stacks of lovely magazines out on display! DIY Copper Magazine Rack @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
1/4″ Copper Tubing
Hoop (I found a small wooden one in the macrame section at my local craft store)
Tubing Cutter
Hot Glue Gun

How to make it:
-Cut three 12″ pieces of copper.
-Wrap string around metal hoop a few times and tie a knot underneath.
-Feed string through each end of the tubing until it comes out the other end.
-Repeat for next rung. For last rung, feed string through one side and slide the copper over. Tie a knot in the string and then center the piece of copper – the knot should be hidden inside the tubing now.
-Adjust the rungs to make sure the spacing is even and they are all level and then use hot glue in the end of each tube to keep the strings in place.
-Hang and enjoy.DIY Copper Magazine Rack @themerrythoughtDIY Copper Magazine Rack @themerrythoughtDIY Copper Magazine Rack @themerrythought

    I love this! We have a pile of copper pipe sitting in our basement from our plumbing upgrades… I’m sure I can find enough matching to make this!ReplyCancel
