An Australian woman has shared how she made a stylish raffia wall decoration for under $50 using supplies from Bunnings Warehouse.
Keira Rumble, owner of Krumbled Foods, decided to make the decoration herself after discovering similar designs retailed for $180 or more.
She made a trio of circular wall hangings using only three materials that cost a total of $47.40 and shared the DIY process with her 404,000 Instagram followers.
Keira used Grunt Craft Raffia Rope, Command Medium Clear Adhesive Wall Hooks from Bunnings and bought three craft rings from Spotlight.
Not only did she save money by making the decoration herself, she also enjoyed the creative design process.
But while the craft project was simple to make, Keira said the method was repetitive and time consuming complete.
‘This makes it an easy project to multitask and do while watching television (I created mine whilst watching Schitts Creek on Netflix) or alternatively it’s a great way to relax and unwind after a long day,’ she said.
She started the craft by measuring the desired length of the raffia and cut it into equal lengths, then began folding the pieces in half to thread through itself and attach onto the ring.
She continued this process until the look was achieved and each ring had a suitable amount of raffia.
‘Make sure to bunch your raffia in a cluster and in different sizes as this really makes a difference with creating an overlap,’ Keira said.
‘Make the project your own by adding other details – for example you could try adding shells or a mirror.’
She then stuck the adhesive wall hooks to the wall and placed the gorgeous decorations above her bed.
The social media post swiftly received more than 12,000 ‘likes’ from Keira’s followers who were more than impressed with the result and some were inspired to make the design themselves.
Previously on Instagram, Keira has also outlined how to make a DIY timber bedhead also using material purchased from Bunnings Warehouse.
