You'll want to measure your vent to make sure you get a mat that is the correct size to completely cover the vent. Once you've got your measurements it's time to go shopping. You can go anywhere to find a mat, really. Just make sure you measure before you buy. You'll also want a mat with holes in it so the air can pass through and not obstruct the air flow.

Something like this or this would work great.

Once you've got your mat selected, you'll need two mails and a hammer. You'll secure the mat in place with the nails. Voila! No more ugly vent!
