Step 4: Weave the doormat
There are hundreds of ways to tie knots. These close up pictures show what I did. If you come up with better ways, go for it!
First we will connect the straight rows, alternating with 5 or 6 modules in each row. Use two pieces of rope, crossing each other as they go through the middle hole, and tie a knot at the end before add a new concrete piece.
I unraveled the ends of the ropes to create little golden tassels! Like on these DIY rope shelves!
Never too many tassels in life!
Then the diagonals.
Until you have THIS!
If you plan to move this 30 lb mat a lot, you can weave them in two sections- one with 2 rows, the other 3. The weight will keep them in place.
Super excited about our one-of-a-kind concrete doormat! Thanks to Quikcrete team for hosting the #QUIKRETE1BagWonder contest that got me started on the concrete fun again! =)
