When I was a kid, I was fascinated with raffia. But for all my hours of playing around with it, I never did manage to make anything useful out of it. Enter Chyanne from Off the List. She came up with these ingenious raffia bowls! [how to make a raffia bowl]
Make a bowl from raffia in autumn colors and fill it with apples for an instant harvest-themed centerpiece, use one to corral stray odds and ends while you work on a craft project, or put one in your entryway to hold keys and other leaving-the-house essentials. For a more rustic look, try substituting twine for raffia.
