Jodi of the cute blog, A Yummy Life, approached me with this great project she did in her home and I thought it would be fun to share is with you guys.
This time of year I’m always itching to redecorate and Jodi found a really inexpensive way to add a colorful new rug to your home on a small budget.
Here are Jodi’s instructions…
Materials you need:
1. 9 Mainstay Kitchen Rag Rugs from Walmart. They were $4.95 each and they’re not with the regular rugs, they’re located on the aisle with oven mitts.
2. 1 large doll needle
3. Embroidery thread. I went with a silver color.
-Stitch two rag rugs together connecting the ends. Add a third rug creating a long strip.
-Create two more strips with the remaining rugs.
-Then stitch two of the longer strips together connecting the rug knots. This part takes a little bit longer as you have to stitch threw the knots of the rag rug. (It’s best when kids are asleep and you have a good show on)
-Add the third strip on the other side and voila you have an 8×10 area rug.
I know how expensive rugs are and I want a new one every few months it seems. This was an inexpensive way to create a colorful and fun rug.
