STEP 1

Trim and fold down the open end of the milk carton. Close the opening using sticky tape.

STEP 2

Cut the milk carton open, by slicing diagonally across the smaller ends and then, cutting lengthways down the carton. One carton creates two shelves.

I used 3M strips to attach my shelves to the wall. What little cute things are you going to display on your milk carton shelf?
