I recently bought some amazing rag rugs from Five Below and I just can’t believe they are only $5.00. These rugs will give you amazing pieces of material. There are so many things you can create with these rugs. I want to create some fun and colorful trees out of the strips of material from these rugs.
The supplies I will be using are:
1. Rag rug from Five Below
3. Seam ripper
4. Paper mache cones or styrofoam cones.
5. Hot glue
You will use the seam ripper and scissors to cut the rug apart.
You will be amazed at at the amount of material you will get from one rug. These strips of material are so colorful and they are all different sizes.
Once you have your strips of material you will start to wrap them around the paper mache cone. I started at the top and added a touch of hot glue to help hold the beginning in place.
You will continue wrapping each piece one after another.
You might want to twist a few of the pieces as you wrap them around the cone. I added more hot glue to bottom to help hold the strips in place.
These are so easy to make and you can make them in a variety of sizes. My rugs are from Five Below but you can also find them in Walmart. I hope you will get creative and give this a try.
