This is a really fun DIY project to make unique book shelves for a kids room. The idea comes from Ken Wingard and he talked about this DIY tree bookshelf on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family show. Home & Family airs weekdays at 10/9 am on the Hallmark Channel. Here is the tutorial for how to make a tree branch bookshelf for kids.
Easy Tree Bookshelf DIY For A Kids Room or Nursery
This creative DIY Tree Bookshelf is perfect decor for a kid’s room or a nursery and the shelves can hold everything from books and games to diapers and baby wipes. The DIY Tree Bookshelf Materials are quite simple and this is a great project for the beginner level do-it-yourselfer!
DIY Tree Bookshelf Materials:
arts & crafts foam
1 x 4 wood
2 sided tape
How To Make A Tree Branch Bookshelf :
The tree is painted on the wall with acrylic paint. You can find templates for the art on the hallmarkchannel.com website and I have included the link at the end of the article.
Cut the arts & craft foam into the leaf and fruit shapes you want.
Paint the cutouts and allow to dry. (Optional)
Use 2x sided tape to apply the foam cut outs to the wall.
Take the 1×4 wood and cut it into long and short pieces. Use the short piece and screw it to the long piece to make the L. Paint the wood and L brackets to match wall tree color.
Then attach the shelf to the wall using L brackets and wall anchors.
