when we talk about decorating our house, we also talk about having a cute, unique doormat. and just imagine a doormat made by yourself, with your own hands then it adds value to our decoration at another level.
when I was thinking about making a doormat, the first thing came into my mind was that it should be durable, easy and cheap to make. so I thought why not make it out of straw.
you can create a grid on a paper as a reference to place pieces of straw. or else you can use a cardboard as a base.
first, decide a size of your mat. (the size of mat which I made is 23″ x 14″)
take a cardboard and mark 1 cm on it.
taking this cardboard as a reference cut pieces of straw.
cut required amount of pieces.
arrange the pieces in a design of your choice.
I have arranged them in an alternate pattern. ( 10 rows of each color)
arrange them carefully.
place butter paper on arranged pieces carefully and neatly.
and iron them. ( ironing will stick them together and make it firm)
iron from both sides (back and front)
your mat is ready… use it to welcome your guest…
