Shelves are objects that are present in all houses. We use them for different things: support ornaments, have books or CDs arranged in a tidy way and in a straight line, just as to give a feeling of peace to one's mind. They are also used for that purpose, to help us to have the house in order and to give a good impression when receiving guests. They must look good and be noticeable.
The so-called hot silicone can be used to glue cardboard, wood, and many other materials. It is especially useful in electronics to fix significant components and prevent them from moving or detaching from the board that contains the printed circuit. It generally appears a lot in DIYs, as it is truly remarkable and can unify anything making sure it won't come apart! If you haven't used it yet, this is your moment. Just be careful.
Out of Cardboard
For this cardboard shelf, you need to cut thirty pieces of double-sided cardboard into 14x10 cm. Stack the pieces one by one. Help yourself with wood glue, since this way the shelves will be stronger and thicker. To prevent the cardboard from moving while the glue dries, you must tape each end with paper tape. The tapes are removed once it is completely scorched. The next thing you have to do is join each cardboard with the others giving it a hexagon shape with hot silicone.
Once the shape is ready, you need to get rectangular cardboard more considerable than the hexagon. You are going to support your frame on that base and cut the excess part with a cutter. This is to give it more outstanding durability and to be more resistant to the shelf. The next step is to paint the color that you like the most. We recommend light green, but any color will be beautiful. Make sure to paint all the sides and that the color of the cardboard does not show. Done! Your floating shelf is ready to be released and used as you prefer. If you like it, you can make more hexagons and have many shelves.
