I've been wanting to create a DIY rattan mirror for a while but rattan reeds are only manageable up until a certain thickness. Larger reeds, like the kind used to make furniture, are hard to bend even if properly soaked! Was that going to stop me from making a rattan mirror? Of course not, if something doesn’t work, you start looking for workarounds!
I tried a few designs and materials and finally landed on the right one. Guess what, it’s not rattan, it’s raffia AKA “faux” rattan because the overall look is very similar! So grab a bunch of natural raffia and read on to find out how to make a rattan mirror (the easy way)!
