If you love to recycle and work with materials like denim, then there are a lot DIY projects out there. One really cool idea is a braided rug. People love these, so if you want to make some money at a craft show, they will get bought up right away. They’re too heavy to have to mail, so it’s best to sell them this way.
You can make these any size you want. All you need is a great supply of well worn clean denim jeans. As you can see from the above picture it can be fun to mix up different shades of denim for a cool effect. Basically all you need to make this denim braided rug are strips of denim and upholstery thread and needle.
These denim rugs are surprisingly soft to the feet and would make great rugs for beside the bed or in front of the kitchen sink. If you use it on a hardwood floor, then you should get those anti-slip matts to put underneath it to keep it still.
