Recycled Blanket Rug


This is the coolest way of making a rug that I have ever seen.

What you do is you take old blankets and cut them into strips that are wide enough to fold into a tight thinner strip (these are your coils). You wrap them around each other in a spiral to make the shape and use a glue gun to hold everything together. I don''t think this is machine washable though. The idea for this comes from craftzine.com
