Top Five Copper DIYs

The copper trend is one that has taken the interior design world by storm and it’s one that we at Coggles can definitely get on board with. Copper is simple, rustic and industrial, making it a great addition to any home – especially since the surge in popularity of minimalist, Scandi-chic interiors.

We’ve been looking at ways we can incorporate it into our own homes, and have come up with our top 5 DIYs; an inexpensive and creative way to bring this trend to life.

Copper Hat Rack

First up we have the hanging copper hat rack, which we discovered on A Pair & A Spare. This simple tutorial only requires four items: copper pipe, scissors, pegs and rope, and is a stylish way of displaying your hat collection or a few items of clothing.

For the full tutorial, head to A Pair & A Spare.

Copper Pipe Wall Sconce

If you’re feeling slightly more technical and are looking for a new, industrial light fixture, try your hand at the DIY copper pipe wall sconce by Claire Zinnecker at Camille Styles. A simple design that is fully customisable, this would work really well as a reading lamp.
