Holy crap has it been ages since I’ve written about any Funko! It’s partially because my blogging schedule fell to pieces over the summer, and partially because there hasn’t been much for me to talk about in terms of my Funko. BUT! As I was putting together my new art area (post coming soon) I had brilliant idea (if I do say so myself 😉 ) for new Funko shelves since the ones we had were entirely full. Voila! Marvel Collector Corps boxes as DIY Funko shelves!
I’ve saved every single Collector Corps box that we have received (we skipped two different boxes for lack of interest) because the art and design on them is just great. However, I didn’t have a clue what to do with them. They’ve just been sitting stacked in a corner of our bedroom this whole time. But when I made a new art area, I ended up freeing up some wall space and it just hit me – I should hang those suckers and put Funkos on them!!
It worked like a charm. I attached the boxes to the wall with two medium Command Strips on per box. The strips go at the top (back) of the box, on the left and right. If the specs are to be believed, each box should be able to hold up to 12 lbs. Certainly enough for a few Funkos! These were seriously the easiest DIY Funko shelves I’ve made. We built other shelves out of wood, but that involved lots of measuring and assembling and what not. For these, you literally slap on some Command Strips and go.
And though it’s hard to tell, there is actually enough room on these boxes for two layers of Funkos (one in front and one in back). I need to make/find something to be a riser and then I could have a second layer if I wanted to! This has opened up a huge amount of space for our Funko collection, which is good as we were maxed out on space before. Now it’s just the constant dilemma of which ones we keep displayed in the living room, and which ones end up in the bedroom. I rearrange a lot.
I hope you like my super simple DIY Funko Shelves! There’s still plenty of space on the wall to more in as we get more Collector Corps boxes in. Though honestly, this does not have to be done with just Collector Corps boxes. Any kind of lightweight square/rectangular box would work!
Have you ever made any DIY Funko Shelves? If you get Marvel Collector Corps, do you save your boxes?
