There are two sides to everything, shelves are no exception.
For most of us keeping things organised can feel like a constant battle. Declutter your space with this simple idea.
This hack will save you a few seconds, a few times a day, and oh man are those few seconds satisfying!
For this project we used
Step 1: Choosing your magnets
For this project we are using the super strong neodymium magnets from our sugru + magnets kit.
You can try this project using your own neodymium magnets + sugru, but make sure the magnets you choose are strong enough to hold what you are going to hang.
Step 2: Take down your shelf
If you can, take down the shelf you are attaching magnets to. It will make mounting the magnets a lot easier.
Use a pencil to mark where you want to position your magnets.
Step 3: Smudge the sugru
Top Tip: Make sure the surface you are applying the sugru to is clean.
At first it may appear sugru will not stick to some porous surfaces, oh but it will… let us explain. To bond sugru to porous materials like wood, build a small base layer of sugru first.
Top Tip: sugru bonds great to itself, so it's easy to build up the base layer one little piece at a time.
Smudge a pea sized piece into the wood with your finger, and make sure you get a good bond. Repeat this until you have a sugru smudge just a little bigger than the magnet you are attaching.

Step 4: Build a pyramid
Using the rest of the minipack, squidge a sausage of sugru onto the back of the magnet and press it into a pyramid shape.
Step 5: Squidge
Carefully and firmly press the magnet onto the shelf, so that sugru squeezes out around the edge of the magnet.
Enjoy that moment, it's sooo satisfying :)
