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.You can make an outdoor rug with an old garden hose! #DIY #gardening Click To Tweet
Basically, all you do is coil the hose around itself and use zip ties to secure one coil to the next.
While you coil, make sure that the ends of all of the zip ties are on one side. The side with the ends will be the bottom of your rug.
When you get to the end of the hose, make sure to secure it to the rest of the rug so that it doesn’t flop outwards.
Now, just give your new outdoor rug two coats of spray paint.
My hose was about 100 feet and it made a rug that is around 3 feet in diameter.
