This vase cover project appeared in our feature, Weave It In, all about modern home décor pieces made from wicker, caning, jute, rattan, rush, and other durable fibers.
Trim a sheet of caning to a vase’s height and wrap it around.
The natural curvature will hold it in place, but you can secure it at the ends, if you like, by working matching cord through the weave.
