Hi guys! Time for another quick and simple project of mine! Check out these simple mini floating shelves! So cute, right?
I’ve seen lots of beautiful floating shelf projects out there, one of them is this lovely one by Aniko from Place of my Taste !
I wanted something lightweight and small, so I went to the spanish dollarstore to check and found these wooden mini plates. Apparently, these are “Octopus plates”, you know, to serve octopus, which is actually a common dish here. They looked perfect and small and are so light. I got thin rope and went off to start this project.
At home, I cut strings of rope, for each mini floating shelf I used three, but doubled or tripled them up. I tied them in a knot and glued them under the bottom of each “plate” with hot glue. And then another knot on the top from where I would hang it up.

They look great, hanging from the branch I have put above the dining room window and are perfect for that spot I think.
The leaves I put on these cute shelves are faux as you have probably noticed, and I love how they look on the bare wood and that’s why I chose to not paint the “plates” and leave them as is.
Tell me what you think! I have another one of these plates a little bit bigger! Should I add a third, bigger shelf, or what would you do with these wooden plates??
Thank you for the visit, til next time….
