DIY Shag Rag Rug {Tutorial}

I have spent the past 4 weeks making a Shag Rag Rug for Riley's nursery and am thrilled to say that it's finally complete!! It was one of the easiest projects I've ever done; however it was by far the most time consuming, but it was WELL worth it!!! It turned out better than I imagined and looks just like the ones that retail for $600+

Checkout my DIY Shag Rag Rug Tutorial!! I hope you enjoy!

Cost: $110 Difficulty: Easy

    What kind of material would you use to make this? It's just a darling rug! Also where would you get the netting (not sure what you would call it) that you put the material through? It would be fun to make a heart rug.

      Cheryl E It is some kind of rug non slip mat... I saw some in Lowes the last time I was there and it clicked. If you go into the area at Lowes that has area rugs you should be able to find it.

      Cindy Wayson It was a non-slip rug pad. You can get them at Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. I purchased mine at Lowes, it was style selection brand.

    I have made similar ones for years. I crochet a grid to the size I want. Use a latch hook and attach the shag strips, I get the no slip backing and paint it on, It makes the rug stick to the floor and also permanently attaches the knot to the grid.

    I love it. You have the patience of a saint to take on this task and a lot of love in you to o it for someone else. And if something nice cannot be said, then nothing should be said at all.

    Funny how I came across this. I'm redoing my bathroom and have been wanting a plushie red rug. I thought I had found one only to go back and look at it again and decided it didn't look very good. I think this will work great! And I'll be able to get that
