Faux Sheep Rug | DIY

My room is so far from being what I want it to be, I'm a very slow decorator. I enjoy my bed and the wire baskets underneath but other than that my room is just random things I've had for years. I've never had a vision for it until now, I feel like I have a grasp on things. Some of those things take more time (and money) than others, so for now I'm working on the small projects.

Originally, I had my giant doily rug on my bedroom floor but with the fall and winter months arriving I wanted something a little more cozier.

This rug cost $12 and took 15 minutes. Enjoy!

Materials: 1 yd. faux sheep fabric, scissors, hot glue

Flip your fabric and roughly sketch the shape you want. As you can tell, I drew a few different shapes and then cut around it making changes as I went. Cut out your shape. Finish by gluing strips of hot glue on the back so it doesn't slip if you are placing it on tile or a wood floor.
 I really love this rug because I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for a trend that I may not be in love with in a year or so. I also love it because I plan to layer it over a kilim rug that I'm saving for!
