DIY Mandala Yoga Mat
I really like with the ability to DIY up EVERYTHING and that extends to stuff you won’t usually assume to DIY. When I discovered some beautiful hippie-style mandala wall tapestries on Amazon I ordered SEVERAL. I used to be so happy with the standard for the cheap worth I paid and am tremendous excited to have handful of tutorials coming at you utilizing these beautiful items of material over the approaching months.
After I noticed this explicit tapestry with its darkish navy background and brilliant pink, orange and teal mandala within the middle I knew precisely what I wished to do with it. The very second I noticed it I believed “that’s going to be my new yoga mat”.
Now I wasn’t terribly positive how nicely this was going to work out and I used to be NOT about to wreck an costly mat so I purchased one for about $11, additionally off of Amazon. The excellent news is I didn’t wreck a dang factor. Huzzah! My mat is simply in regards to the prettiest factor you’ve ever seen and I’m SO KEEN to get began on my journey to be a daily yogini!
For this mission you will have:
- Yoga mat
- Cheesy glue
- Low-cost bristled brush
- Mandala fashion tapestry wall hanging
- Wax paper
First up you’re going to wish a tapestry wall hanging. In amazon seek for “tapestry wall hanging” and tons will pop up, some as low-cost as like $7! Woot! This explicit one value me about $10.
You’ll additionally want a yoga mat. This one is tremendous skinny and value about $10, additionally. A fast notice, the stinking folds on this factor are a BEAR to get out.
Apparently all people with 4 legs LOVES this factor so maybe we’re off to begin!
Unfold out your tapestry and resolve what a part of it you’d like in your mat. I actually wished the middle proper smack dab there within the middle of the mat however I felt like that will have wasted far an excessive amount of of this beautiful material. I made a decision as an alternative to make use of half of the mandala and place it off middle on the mat.
Trim your material to have 1-2 inches of additional off of every aspect of the mat.
Working in sections a couple of foot large start brushing Cheesy Glue onto the mat. Roll the material onto the glued sections smoothing it out as you go alongside the size of the mat.
Now since I don’t have tons and tons of unused flooring house (like in visitor room that isn’t presently stuffed with baskets and baskets of fresh laundry) I used a closet door to dry the mat and material out. Enable the glue to dry for a couple of hours after which apply glue to the sting and the underside of the remaining material. Fold the material inward to the again and use clothespins to maintain it securely in place whereas drying.
To make issues simpler than what I went by reduce a small piece of wax paper and place it on both aspect of the yoga mat in between the material and the wooden of the pins. I didn’t do that and I’ve been peeling some wooden away the place the pins obtained caught to the material when the glue inevitably seaped out a bit by the weave of the material.
As soon as dry head out to your serene spot and get your yoga on!
Now isn’t that simply probably the most beautiful yoga mat you’ve ever seen? I’m in LOVE with it!
