Twig Wreath from your local craft or floral store. Give it a nautical touch by hanging it off a rope, and decorate it with Beach Finds that reflect the season. Shells in rich tones of orange and browns for example. Or paint the shells.
On hard surface, tightly coil rope so it starts to make a circle. As circle gets bigger, apply duct tape to rope so coil doesn't unwind. After coiling rope to desired rug size, add extra layer of duct tape that lays in one direction. Trim ends that go over outside edge of the rug. Flip over to see finished creation. For this rug, 5/8-inches in diameter and 90 feet long rope was used. Rug was 3 ft wide when finished.
