5 lovely DIY raffia projects

The ABC Crafts Series...R is for Raffia!

I love raffia, and colored raffia in particular, and I mostly use it to embellish wrapped gifts, especially those that are handmade by me. But there are many more amazing uses to raffia and I decided to use this week's edition of the ABC Crafts Series to show just a few of them.

All the projects are simple and easy to make and come with clear instructions and materials lists. Check them out below!

I hope you've enjoyed this little list of ideas, come back next week to see what I'll be sharing!

In case you missed previous posts, the ABC Crafts series will be covering one (or more) crafts for each letter of the alphabet during 2016. Each roundup features 5 links, grouped around the major theme. All links posted will be DIY tutorials with clear instructions and/or free patterns, so that everyone can easily replicate them.

I've created a specific page for the series, which will include links to the crafts already covered, and a list of upcoming topics. You can find the page here. If you have suggestions for any of the topics, feel free to leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I will try to include your ideas as much as possible (with proper credit)!


Happy Thursday!
