Hi there! I’m so excited to share this DIY for the boho wall hanging I made with you! I made this to hang in our daughter’s nursery…I’ll be sharing more on that soon, too! I came across this style on Pinterest, but was only finding sites in Australia that don’t ship to the US. After looking at a few of them, I realized the material used is raffia, so here’s my take on it 🙂
This is an easy DIY, it is just time consuming. So pop on your favorite show or movie and let’s get to it!
- 2 hoops (10” and 6”)
- Raffia (I purchased 3 bags, I wasn’t sure how many I would need..I used one full bag..I would definitely recommend 2 bags minimum since some of the raffia pieces are skimpy
- Hot glue gun
- Cotton rope
- Monarch butterfly

Begin with the 10” loop. Take about 10 pieces of raffia, fold them in half with the loop up top. Place the looped raffia behind the hoop and pull the bottom through – essentially knotting it on the hoop.
Continue until the hoop is full. Be sure to push each piece close together as you add them on to avoid any gaps.
Once complete, cut the raffia to the length you would like.
Begin looping raffia on the 6” hoop, follow steps 1-3 until complete.
Measure the rope to fit the center of the smaller hoop – create a circle with the rope. Using a hot glue gun, add glue to the rope to secure it in place.
Flip over the hoop and using hot glue, glue it to the opening. Flip the hoop back over and use hot glue to secure the butterfly.
Center the smaller hoop over the larger hoop and use a few pieces of raffia (about 2-4 strands) to attach the small hoop to the large hoop. Be sure to do this on each side and the top and bottom.
Ta-da! You did it! Let me know if you have any questions and please share with me if you make this DIY yourself!
