Start by marking your dowel at 4" mark and cut the first piece at this point. Then use that piece to have it as a guide to cut the rest of them. You will need 16 pieces of 4" in length and another 16 pieces of 3 1/2".
Rattan Mirror DIY | PINTEREST INPIRED
Do you like the bohemian style? Then I've got you covered! Today I wanna share with you how to make a rattan mirror that was inspired by Pinterest. I saw this bamboo, rattan, raffia sort of mirrors popping up all over Pinterest and I wanted to recreate one. I think they are beautiful and nice and I can't wait to show you how to make one!
Then I marked the back of the mirror a little bit above half of an inch and draw a circle.
Hot glue your 4" dowels at 12 o'clock, at 6 o'clock, at 9 o'clock and at 3 o'clock and then another 4 dowels between them and then another 8 dowels between the last ones. I hope it makes sense!
Lastly, hot glue your 16 shorter dowels to fill the gaps between the longer ones.
Grab your raffia cord and pour a little bit of hot glue to secure the end and then weave it in and out every other dowel. I weaved three rows of the raffia cord and then glued the end of the cord.
When you're done and you're happy with how it turned out, glue the hanger. All I used was the raffia cord which I looped and hot glued it at the back of my mirror.
Well, I'm absolutely obsessed with this rattan mirror! I enjoyed it and I hope you enjoyed this DIY as well!
