Got old garden hoses? Turn them into rugs!
Got old garden hoses? Turn them into rugs!

I haven’t really paid much attention to our rugs. For me, as long as they serve their purpose, I’m good. If ever an old rug needs to be replaced, I go to the nearest store and buy the same kind. After all, they’re all the same, I thought.

But, boy, was I wrong.

This is another great project where you turn trash to treasure.

When my daughter had a recycling project in school, I was pleasantly surprised. She shared with me that one of her classmates was able to convert an unused water-hose into a rug. I can’t imagine it at first, but she showed me this DIY tutorial about making one. I decided to give it a try.

In all fairness, it’s actually good project. It benefits me greatly since 1.) we do not have to buy new rugs now and then, and 2.) we have a number of broken hoses at home. Perfect.
