DIY Hand-Stitched Rug / Wall Hanging

Have you ever been to IKEA and just think to yourself, man this place is like the Disneyland of DIY projects? I mean, IKEA hacks have officially barfed all over the blog/Pinterest world. There are so many ways to creatively use their products, and honestly, they're just so affordable. Since I've become slightly (not slightly) obsessed with weaving, I decided to do an IKEAdjustment of my own. 


I picked up the SINNERLIG Rug and hand-stitched my own design! It was so fun, easy, and for under $30, it doesn't break the bank.


All you need is a tapestry needle (because it's sturdier and longer) and some wool yarn. 


Then just start stitching! This part is really up to you. I wanted my design to feel unexpected and organic, with some tribal elements mixed in for structure. The rug is made of seagrass, so the rigidity of the weave creates these small spaces that are perfect to sew through.


The hardest part of this DIY was whether to use it as a wall hanging or rug!
