How to Make an Outdoor Rug with a Water Hose

I needed a cute little outdoor rug to add some color to my hammock area. Luckily, we were about to throw out an old hose. I snatched it out of the trash and went to work.

With just some zip ties and spray paint I was able to get just the look I wanted.

My hose was about 100 feet and it made a rug that is around 3 feet in diameter.
