DIY Raffia Monogram

Raffia Monogram

I might be that last person to jump on the monogram train but darn, they are cute. The letters are wrapped in yarn, washi tape or covered rhinestones. A fall monogram needs something more festive like raffia, which is what we are using today.  I found a cute letter style cut out of wood and thought it would be the perfect specimen to make a fall decoration.



Wet Raffia

The wooden letter that selected is about 6″ high.  I wet the raffia in a large bowl to make it pliable.

Wrap Raffia

Take strips of the wet raffia and wrap it around the letter. This gives a nice wrap and the raffia does not crack and break when wet. When the strip is completely wrapped, tuck the end in, under the wrap on the back.

Continue doing this until the whole letter is covered. If you are impatient, like me, get the hairdryer out and blow dry the wet raffia. Once the entire letter is covered, glue any lose ends if necessary. Now it’s to decorate!  Hang your new fall monogram on your door or sit it on the mantle!
