to make a custom linen rug for just a few dollars.
It is an interior rug, which can be used in the living room as well as in a bedroom.

Step 1: Components and Tools Needed:
- Cardboard - The size of the carton depends on the size of your carpet - free -
- Double sided adhesive -2$
- Linen twine - 3$ for 90m -
- a ruler
- a meter
- a pen
Step 2: Prepare the Pattern
- Cut the cardboard into the desired shape and size for your rug. This will be the pattern of your rug.
- Draw lines inclined at 45 ° to the edge of the cardboard. Lines will serve as a guide for laying the adhesive
- Lay the adhesive along the lines. Fully cover the carton.
- On the back of the cardboard, place a strip of adhesive on all edges
Step 3: Paste the Twine
- The twine will be glued in the same way as the adhesive, at 45 ° to the edge.
- Cut pieces of twine slightly larger than the sticking length in order to stick the ends to the back of the rug.
- Remove the protective strips from the double-sided adhesive one by one and stick the piece of twine.
- Cover the entire rug in this manner.
- Remove the protective strips from the double-sided adhesive at the back of the rug and stick the twine that protrudes over it. Glue a strip of adhesive all around the back of the cardboard to mask the first layer.
Step 4: Result
You now have a custom carpet to decorate your interior. I made it rectangular, but I could have done it in the shape of "L" or circular, very large or very small ... the only limit is your imagination! Share your creations!
