DIY Hanging Photo Shelf

Last month we shared a recent summer adventure to some of our favorite spots in Rochester. We documented the day using the Kodak Moments app and had some of those photos printed as Moment Cards. Once they arrived in our mailbox, we wanted a pretty place to show them off, so we made this little shelf to display some of our favorite things – photos and plants!DIY Hanging Photo Shelf @themerrythought for @kodakmomentpinsDIY Hanging Photo Shelf @themerrythought for @kodakmomentpinsDIY Hanging Photo Shelf @themerrythought for @kodakmomentpinsDIY Hanging Photo Shelf @themerrythought for @kodakmomentpinsMaterials:

– wood (we used a 1-1/8″ thick pine board)
– miter box
– table saw
– hole saw
– sandpaper
– leather straps
– leather punch
– hammer & nails

Directions: Cut wood to length using miter box (ours is 16″ long). Use a table saw to cut a slot across the center of board, we made our slot half the length of the board (8″ long). Use a hole saw to cut out a hole the size of planter right underneath it’s rim, centered on the other half of the board. Sand shelf as needed. Cut two leather straps to desired length (ours are 33″). Punch holes at each end of leather straps. Use hammer & nails to hang leather straps, creating a loop for the shelf to slide in. Slide in wood shelf. Add planter & photo.
