Learn How To Make A Braided Rug From Old T-Shirt’s

Instead of tossing away those “old” T-Shirt that you have in the back of the closet, recycle them and make an unique and awesome rug. This DIY idea is challenging you to put your creativity to work and make a beautiful colourful rug. And when your DIY project is all done you only have to find it a spot in your home and you will change your home design completely.

To get started, you will need the following materials: of course, the main character in this home project, old T-Sirt’s (make sure you have different colours), scissors, tape, tapestry needle, sturdy canvas, water based “Aerosal Polycrylic Protective Finish” and also black yarn.

Follow the instructions: Start by defining the T-Shirt rug size. Depending on the size you’ve decided, cut the canvas. Take each T-Shirt and rip long strips from each one. Take different colour strips and begin braiding. Make lots and lots of colourful braided ropes using the T-Shirt’s strips until you cover the entire canvas. Use the tape for the ends of the braided ropes. Using the glue, glue the braided ropes to the mat. Its important to leave braids hanging on each part of the canvas. Using the yarn and needle, stitch the braids edges to the base of the rug. Now its save to take the tape down from the braids edges. The last but not least step of this project is to seal the braided rug using “Aerosal Polycrylic Protective Finish”. And voila!!! Enjoy!!!
