I follow the super amazing blog UCreate and each month they have a "Craft with Me" project. This month was PAINTED RUGS. The pictures she posts are amazing. Swoon-worthy craftiness all over rugs.
I knew I wanted to get my craft on and paint a rug, but I was also alarmed by the thought of PAINTING A RUG. lol.
I didn't take any before pictures because I didn't really know how it would turn out, but here's the finished project:
I took the grimy, old rug that was in the house when me moved in and painted it the color of our living room. HAHA Mr. ST I got my own set of tools out, opened the gallllllon of paint, painted a rug and YOU DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I DID IT! :-P
I used my Cricut to cut out the flip flop template and I pined it to the rug to keep it in place. I then used a cheap-o foam brush and stenciled in the flops with some regular old craft paint.
I also used the Cricut to cut out the Welcome letters from the Life's a Beach Cartridge.
The rug was missing something so I also added some starfish that, again, I cut out with the Cricut.
This was a RIDICULOUSLY easy craft and one that EVERYONE can do.
I can hear what you're thinking... 'Great, amazing, fabulous rug and all, but this has nothing to do with weddings...' YOU ARE WRONG! Think about painting a personalized RUG to use in the ceremony, or for the reception during cocktail hour. SWWWOOOOONING. I've got some Wedding Rug Ideas already flowing!
