For some odd reason, I have an obsession with floating ornaments and DIY’s that use the space between floors and ceilings to fill a room with art. In today’s tutorial, we have DIY Hanging Wooden Tablets that add a beautiful rustic and earthy feel to any room.
Thanks to Mein Feenstaub for creating this awesome diy, we can now easily prop ornaments, flowers, mini-vases and cute little DIYs onto these hanging wooden tablets. The gold chains can be replaced with copper or metal chains, thick gut or string. With that being said, let’s get on with this tutorial.
Tools And Equipment:
- A wooden plate-shaped however you please. Round discs work best for this tutorial.
- Metal or copper chains, thick gut or string.
- A drill
- 3 Wooden Beads
- 3 Chain Rings
Using precise measurements, mark three points on the wooden plate/disc with the same distance. This will ensure that when you drill holes and insert the chain, your wooden tablets will hang straight.
Drill three holes all the way through the 3 marked points.
Now, here’s where things get a little tricky. We’re going to cut the chain into 4 separate pieces, 1 long and 3 short. All 3 short pieces of the chain must be the exact same length. 10 cm per piece seems idea for a regular sized disk.
From the long chain, bend and curl the end of one side into a hook, insert all 3 chains into the hook and then curl it to lock the chains into place.
Thread all 3 chains through the holes in the wooden disc.
Now, thread the chains through the 3 chain rings and curl the last link for all 3 chains to prevent the wooden rings from sliding through the chain.
Prop these hanging wooden tablets up in rooms that need a bit of oomph! Play around with the design and customize it using things like feathers, beads, paint and carvings to add some of your personality to this wonderful DIY.
