DIY Project: Make a Green Bath Mat!
Want your bathroom decor to be a little greener?
My BFF forwarded me this project to make your own bath mat! I surely need one of these for my shower:
Thanks to Curbly for sharing this idea!
The style of this mat takes inspiration from rag rugs but, with the use of towels, is better suited for the bathroom. I mean, what could be more absorbant than a billowing pile of towels beneath your feet? Nothing.
This project is easy and only requires 2 materials:
- Old Towels
- Gridded Matting (sometimes called anti-slip matting)
Cut the matting to whatever size rug you desire. Next, cut your towels into 3/4″ wide strips of 5-6 inches each. Working across the grid, knot each piece facing the same direction. For a thicker rug, knot along every line – or – knot along every other line for a thinner mat. Once you’ve knotted the whole thing you’re done. Voila! You have a “new” eco-friendly bath mat and spent less than $5 in the process (the gridded matting is quite cheap).
