How to Upcycle Cake Tins into Round Floating Shelves
My imagination has been sparked by #OneMetreChallenge being run by Off the Wall. The company is running a competition to see what people can make/create/do with one metre of wallpaper. Regular readers will know that I love to upcycle and recycle – what better than to transform old cake tins into shelving?
Fancy your own round floating shelves?
To line your cake tins with wallpaper you will need:
- Cake tin
- Adhesive – E3200
Ensure your tin is clean, removing any traces of grease.
Draw round the tin bases on your wallpaper, trim carefully. Check the wall paper fits.
Sand the base of the tins, breaking up the non stick surface.
Clean the surface to remove any dust.
Apply glue adhesive to base of the tin.
Apply wallpaper, and weigh down to prevent curling of paper as it drys.
Your cake tin shelves are ready to hang on the wall.
However if you fancy adding a splash of colour you could spray the sides of the tins.
The biggest dilemma was choosing from the wide variety of wallpapers available:)
Flat baking trays instead? Convert them into magnetic noticeboards.
