DIY: Hexagon Shelves

A hexagon shelf made out of ice lolly sticks. Yes, you read that right, ice lolly sticks. This is the amazing creation posted over on make and do crew’s site, that shows you how to make your very own hexagon shelves, for all of just a few pounds.

Hexagon shelves have been rising in trend over the last year or so, but to buy them they’re not the cheapest of items. Especially if you want to build up a wall of them, you can practically hear your money draining from your bank.
