Introduction: Recycled Slip-proof Galaxy Rug
If you would like to add little '' outer space'' to your room you will love this idea of making your own galaxy rug. I made it slip-proof so it's safe even for children !
By the way I felt little overwhelmed sitting on this rug and watching ''Gravity'' lol
Step 1: Materials and Tools You Need :
- old black jeans
- acrylic paints
- spray bottle
- seam ripper
- hot glue gun
Step 2: Fabric
cut ''the legs'' as you can see on photo , upper part can become nice shorts ;-) (photo 1)
with help of hot glue gun glue both parts of the jeans in one piece
you can sew them as well (photo 2)
Step 3: Bleaching
fill the spray bottle with bleach and create galaxy shape with it
Step 4: Painting
put the first layer of white color with the help of sponge or brush (photo 1,2 )
next with the help of comb or / and net splash paint over galaxy and create stars (photo 3 )
with flat brush paint more visible stars (photo 4)
Step 5: How to Secure the Painting ?
iron whole painting and voila :-)
Step 6: Finishing
fray the edges using seam ripper
Step 7: Slip-proof
cut out from slip-proof silicone mat 4 small pieces in heart shape for example, next glue or sew them to all sides of the rug
Step 8: Ready Rug
Voila ! slip-proof galaxy rug is ready, put it on a floor or table or use it as a pad under computer or cover with it chair , couch ...
this rug is just perfect for meditation, to feel the connection with the universe, or reading some fantastic sci fi books like Solaris by Lem ( great book by the way!)
