A Fun And Comfortable Cork Rug DIY

This DIY cork rug will be useful anywhere in the house.  I think the comfort of this rug will be perfect in the kitchen where I spend time standing.  Color can be added with the string used to tie the cork together.  Thanks to Dream a Little Bigger for the idea.

I was perusing the clearance aisles on a rare trip to Michael’s when I saw lots of neat stuff. Metal wheels that I don’t quite know what I will do with and cork circles. Now these circles I knew exactly what to do with because I had this idea in my head for ages BUT I couldn’t think how to get so many uniform circles. These weren’t quite as thick as I had hoped but they did just fine considering they were just over a buck a bag and I used 2!

For this project you will need:

  • Cork circles
  • Hemp cord
  • Drill

Here are my cork bits. Again, Michael’s look through clearance. For my size rug you’ll need 2 bags. Not sure what size my rug is and I can’t really tell you but we’ll get to that in a bit… but it’s a LARGE size bath mat.
