To begin, neaten up the edges of the leather straps with scissors, and then make a small mark on the strap to indicate where the screw will go.

Step 2

Taking care to line up the marks, repeat Step 1 on your second leather strap. This will ensure that your shelf sits straight.

Step 3

Step 3 - fold one strap in half with the ends meeting and affix the screw through the strap into the wall

Fold one strap in half so the two ends meet, creating a loop. Then affix the screw to the mark you made in Step 1 and fasten the leather loop into the wall.

Step 4

Repeat Step 3, and measure the width of your shelf to determine where your second loop should be fastened to the wall. There should be some space overhanging the straps.
