This is a really easy fun project for anyone! I thought I’d make a quick tutorial to show you a simple easy way to make your own Area rug on a budget.
So I really wanted an Area rug for outside on my patio, so I shopped around to find something that I liked. I found so many beautiful rugs, but they were way out of my price range. So I asked myself, what is it about this rug that I like? I’m a pattern junkie, I love Bohemian and Moroccan patterns. I don’t know if you would call me cheap or just a DIY addict, but most of the stuff I see in the stores my first reaction is “Oh I could make that!” So that’s exactly what I did. I went to my local Home Depot store and bought a large canvas drop cloth, it cost me about $20. Compared to the rugs I was looking at, this was a great deal! AND I could design any pattern I wanted to make it my own. The size I chose was 5×7″, but you could go bigger or smaller depending on the size rug you want to make.
To make your DIY Area rug your also going to need some fabric paints. I used paints by Fabric Creations, and you’ll need some Textile Medium.
