DIY Bath Rug

Oh boy I can't wait to do this. Probably another fantastic five dollar display of awesomeness!

Give your old towels a second life by transforming them into a super soft, eco-chic bath rug.
It’s an easy to do project that requires very little concentration. It may take you a while but it'll be worth it once you’re done!
1. Decide how big you want your bath rug to be by measuring the dimensions on the floor
2. Purchase gridded matting and cut it to those dimensions. (Can be bought at a craft shop or basic hardware store, as this usually sits under floor rugs to avoid slipping.)
3. Cut the towels into 5-6” long pieces, approx. 3/4” thick.
4. Knot each strip along the grid, ensuring they all face the same way.
Tip: For a thick, full mat, knot along every line. For a thinner mat, knot along every other line.
