turqoise home decor. | I bought my fabrics at a local cloth store.
Every time I make dinner and try to eat on the countertop my dishes slide around, so I needed to fix that situation More
The first thing I did was roll out the grip mat material and cut a measured portion out that would work as the shag rug base. Next, I folded the mat and drew half of a heart with the sharpie before I started cutting along the line that would ultimately give me the cute heart shape that I was going for (creative home designs). After that was done, I took out the fabric and ironed out the strips and then cut along the lines so my strips would all be even and the shag rug would look like it was made by a professional you know what I mean? Then, using the kebab sticks, I pushed alternating strips through the holes in the grip mat and pulled it through the other side with my fingers. If you are doing a craft similar to this, it is easier to start the process in the middle and work outwards. I kept checking the flip side to make sure that my work was looking neat on the other side (spanish style home decor). I will admit I took some breaks because as simple as this is, it can become so tedious. What see in the photo is my finished counter shag rug and I think it looks pretty amazing for my first try.
