On-trend rat­tan spices up a vase col­lec­tion

To make: We bought our nat­u­ral rat­tan from a fur­ni­ture up­hol­sterer and ap­plied a light coat­ing of wood stain as the colour was a lit­tle yel­low. Choose straight-sided vases (try for a group of vary­ing heights if you’re do­ing more than one). Cut rat­tan to size. Us­ing very small dots of hot glue on the rat­tan, wrap around the vase and se­cure the join at the back with more hot glue. The eas­i­est way to do this is to place the rat­tan on a flat sur­face and roll the vase along it, glu­ing as you go.
