Woodland Inspired Rug

Materials: Hampen

I can’t take credit for the toadstools, I used a wonderful tute and I followed the instructions here using felt I had at home already, trimmed patches off the Ikea Hampen rug which was a bargain £10 and glue guned them in place.

It doesn’t sound very technical now I’ve written it like that, but I absolutely love how it turned out!

    I love this idea – I went promptly to Ikea and purchased the Hampen rug. Unfortunately, the rug has horrible smell (off-gassing) and the fumes were so noxious in my daughter’s room I had to roll it up after about an hour. I’m taking it back before I even got to the mushrooms!
