If you’re wanting to add some additional shelving to a room but don’t want any majors jobs or installation, hanging shelves may be just what you’re looking for. They make for fairly easy projects and give you just the extra storage or decor space you’re looking for. Here are 10 fabulous DIY hanging shelf projects.
1. Put Together Some Leather
What a nice accent piece this leather strap shelf would make for any room! Put as much or as little as you’d like on the shelf to capture the feel you’re looking for. All you’ll basically need are some leather straps, screw hooks, and wall plugs. Love it! Find the tutorial on Burkatron.
2. Wood Plate Decorate
Decorate with a wood plate floating shelf. Make your own using nothing more than a round wood plate and yarn or twine. Wood plates can be found at Home Depot. Floating shelves create such welcome variance to a room! The succulents were a great choice to put on the shelf. Get more details from Place Of My Taste.
3. Dim Sum, Anyone?
Anyone care for some Dim Sum? Well, perhaps not for a meal, but how creative is this round hanging shelf using a Dim Sum steamer basket?! Make the shelf with another piece of ply wood and then attach some rope or twine. Dim Sum steamers can often be found locally in Asian marketplaces or Sur la Table. You can also find them on Amazon and other online stores. Learn how to make your own round hanging shelf here from A Pair & A Spare DIY.
4. Throw in the Towel

I’m in love with this dual shelf and hanging rack! Although the baby clothes are adorable hanging from the wood rack like that, you could also drape special quilts over the rod. What a precious look this adds to a bedroom! Find the picture tutorial on Triibe.

Repurpose IKEA shelf brackets into hanger racks in a closet for more clothing storage. Isn’t it great when one item can be used in multiple ways?
