how fabulous are these rope rugs from free people ?
they were created as displays for their stores and the display artists
were nice enough to write up a DIY so we can make our own.
(the permalink keeps coming up as a blank page for me
so you have to scroll about 2/3 down the page to view the directions)
anyways, looks like all you need is :
a large piece of cardboard, black marker, scissors,
rope in various sizes and colors, neon twine, pompoms
...and a ton of patience...
i'll have to add this one to my list!
