Before I share the final product, I wanted to let you all know that there are many ways you can perhaps create one. I did find a couple DIYs out on Pinterest, but as I took a stroll down Joann's one day, I came across some cool stuff that I thought would make a nice one. It all depends on how much work you are willing to spend (and money!)
|stuff I bought|
I first bought an inexpensive bathroom mat at Ross that I wouldn't feel bad if I ended up destroying. Later I got some sequins elastic, some shiny ribbon, and sequins just to have a variety of choices. I decided that the easiest and nicest looking was the elastic. I also bought some really nice Moroccan-looking fabric ribbon (or whatever the proper name is ).
I found a couple yarns that would give that shaggy look to the piece, but the one above is my favorite. I hot-glued everything because after all, I'm not planning to wash this thing...it's for the wall. I did sew my first attempt, which I might show you all later, but for now, I'm not too excited about it! If you are ambitious, start sewing.
Here it is on my wall! As you can see, I also added tassels at the end by sewing them onto the rug. Here's a closer look at my work...
You can either sew/glue the ribbon and sequins first and add the yarn on top, but I liked the effect of doing it the other way around, just to cover my imperfections!
