Rattan Inspired Vase

Today’s craft features a quick & easy DIY Raffia Weaving. You may add some little boho vibe to the venue with this paper raffia vase.

Here comes the tutorial: Cut paper raffia pieces a little bit longer than the mason jar or vase you will use for this project. The number of pieces will vary with the size of the jar. Be sure that the vertical threads are in odd number.

So, start by securing the paper raffia pieces to the jar vertically. You may use hot silicone.

You need to attach it only from one point at the top and the rest needs to be free.

After you are done with the vertical threads, cut pieces, you will need for weaving horizontally.

Glue at one point and start weawing the horizontal thread over and under the vertical ones. Once you are done, glue the end.

Repeat this process, again weaving over and under the threads secured to the jar, being sure to go over the threads you previously went under, and under the raffia threads you previously went over.

Once you complete covering the jar, turn it upside down …

…glue the ends to the bottom.

For the neck of this fancy vase, cut a rectangular piece of cardboard.

Secure the ends to give it a circular shape.

Then twine the raffia arround the cardboard. 

You will have a nice raffia neck.

Secure the raffia wrapped neck to the vase
