DIY Raffia Wreath

2 Materials
2 Hours

I made this quick DIY Raffia Wreath last week. It was easy, fun and inexpensive to make. Here is how I did it.

Steps in making this DIY Raffia Wreath…

Start cutting the raffia into approx 8 inch stripes. Then begin tying them around the wreath.

Cut into stripes

Begin tying, as shown

Continue tying all the way around

Continue tying all the way around the wreath form until you are done with one row. Then you can start on the next row.

keep tying
and tying

like so…

When you get to this part of the wreath tie as shown below…this will hide the metal.

Continue tying all the layers of the wreath until you are done. Once all the tying is done you can trim any excess pieces all the way around.

like so…

Once you are done tying, you may need to trim the edges a bit to make it look even all the way around.

That is it. This project is easy peasy, it just takes a bit of patience as the tying takes a while. I hung it in a few spots in my home just to see where I liked it best.

Optional….You could add a mirror to the middle of this and make it into a mirror as well.
