Use sand­pa­per to re­move any rough edges from the piece of wood and en­sure it has a smooth fin­ish. Cut the leather belt blank in half and mea­sure 2cm from each end for where the holes will go. Make a hole at each end us­ing punch pli­ers. You can widen the holes as needed by punch­ing a lit­tle more from around the first hole. Hang the leather straps in place on your wall hooks and slot the piece of wood be­tween the loops to fin­ish. Take care not to over­load the shelf.
