A simple rug can do wonders for pulling together a room. If you find the right one, it can not only be functional, for instance, preventing echoes in lofted spaces, it can also be incredibly aesthetically pleasing. But you don't have to empty your bank account to find one that checks both these boxes. With just a few cheap materials, you can craft your own rug and customize it entirely to your space and design preferences...here's how!

You'll need some jute or sisal rope, a hot glue gun...

And a needle and thread.

You can also opt for a sewing machine.

Start by winding the rope around itself, gluing as you go.

If you're making an intricate design, like so, you'll want to sew in key places.

This will ensure that your rug doesn't fall apart easily.

But you can go as simple...

Or as elaborate as you'd like.

It looks beautiful either way!

Simple, beautiful, and it costs you next to nothing. That's the best kind of DIY, if you ask me!
