Raffia Mirror DIY | Amazing Boho Decor

6 Materials
50 Minutes

Hey guys! Today I wanna show you how to make a raffia mirror. If you like the bohemian or coastal decor, then this DIY is definitely for you! It’s a very easy project and it adds an organic feel to your home. So, let’s get to it!

Cut the raffia cords

I started by unfolding the raffia cord and then I took one cord and with the help of a ruler I cut off the cord at 10″. I used this cord as a guide to cut all the rest I was going to need. And I’m going to need a LOT!

Straighten them with an iron

Next, I wanted to straighten them because as you can see they are bent…so, I laid down a pillowcase on my table but you can use a towel if you want and then I put a bunch of the raffia cords on top and then I covered them with another pillowcase and with the help of an iron, I ironed them and put them aside.

Attach the raffia cords to the metal ring

Then, I took three to five cords, that is depending on how thick the cords are, and then I folded them in half to create a loop and then I put the loop under the metal ring and then passed the cords through the loop and pulled tight to secure them.

Place the mirror

After I attached all the raffia I needed, I then took my trusted glue gun and poured hot glue all around to the back, and then I placed my mirror on top and pushed it down to help it stick.

Place the hanger

When it was all nice and secure I took a piece of raffia, folded it in half to create a loop, and then made a knot. I placed it on top of the back of the mirror and hot glued it in place.

The reveal
