Copper Magazine Stand | DIY

You will need:

  • Hem tape (2cm wide)
  • Scissors
  • Steel ruler
  • Iron
  • 8 x 90° copper elbows (22mm diameter)
  • 2 x 430mm copper pipes (22mm diameter)
  • 4 x 350mm copper pipes (22mm diameter)
  • 2 x 230mm copper pipes (22mm diameter)
  • Fabric (445 x 1470mm)

 

What-you-need

First, to get an idea of what you are working with, build the copper pipe structure without the fabric.  Then remove the longest pipes – you will use these for the making up of the fabric part.

Measure and cut 4 pieces of hem tape – 2 long and 2 short for the respective sides of your fabric. Using a steel ruler and an iron, make a 2cm wide crease for your hem around all edges of the fabric. The width of the hem will depend on the width of your hem tape – it needs to just cover the hem tape otherwise you will get stickiness all over your iron!

Next, place the hem tape under the hem and apply heat using the iron to stick it down – start with the long sides before doing the short ones until your fabric has a neat hem all around it.

Bring in the short edges to meet in the middle, the one side over-lapping the other by 2cm. Make sure the join is equidistant from the two short ends.

mag4

Measure and cut 3 pieces of hem tape, 2 long and 1 short. Use the short one to stick the middle join down, applying heat with the iron to do so.

mag5

Place the two 430mm copper pipes inside the folded fabric, pushing them to each side. Use the 2 long pieces of hem tape to do the final sticking down of the sides, again, applying heat with the iron to do so.

Now, with the pipes in place in the fabric, reconstruct your beautiful new magazine stand. Voila!

Did you have to cut the copper piping? I am at the supply store & all they have are long pieces. The copper pieces also have printed ink going down the entire piping. Did you have this issue as well?

We had the copper piping cut by the hardware store… and no we did not have writing down the side of ours.
