A CLEARANCE RUG TRANSFORMED INTO A WALL HANGING

hello there. hope all of you are well and enjoyed a relaxing weekend.  i finished up my weekend project and was able to transform this $9 clearance rug into a wall hanging.  this was pretty easy and did not require alot of time or money. read on to see how i transformed it ...



i folded over the top (and sewed into place) a pocket so i could insert a wooden dowel for hanging.  if sewing is not your thing, you could use a large needle and thread some string or yarn along the top of your rug and knot the strings around your dowel.

next i took some yarn ... worked it into the rug (using a needle) and knotted it on the back to secure.

i added some fringe to the bottom by using the needle to pull the yarn thru and knotting it into place.

finally, i added some twine to the dowel to create a hanger.

and this is the finished project!

i decided to keep the colors neutral since it will be hanging in our dark blue half bath.  but if i come across another rug, i may try my hand at creating one with more colors + designs.

that's it for now ...

peace to your heart.
later.

  4. I'm trying this!! I've been wanting to try weaving, but without access to a loom and not wanting to invest in such a thing, this is the perfect compromise to have some lovely texture on the wall. Thanks for sharing!!
