Super-Easy Hexagon Shelf DIY

I love hexagons, whether in a honeycomb, on a quilt, or —in this case— as a wall shelf.

How to Make Hexagon Wall Shelves

Bringing the hexagon trend to your humble abode is easier than you might think. New shelving awaits you in the gift box department of your local Target.


  • 12 hexagonal gift boxes (I got mine at Target, though they're not sold online)
  • 12 hexagonal mirrored tiles (mine came from Ikea)
  • 12 pieces of double-sided wall mounting tape

That's it—really.
