If you want to add a little personality to a room, why not paint an area rug. That's right- PAINT an area rug. Okay, so you won't paint the entire rug, just some decorative elements, such as a shape or name, but the result is still the same- a unique, one-of-a-kind, personalized rug, (drum roll please......) MADE BY YOU.
One of the great things about this project, is that it is simple, doesn't take a lot of supplies, and is relatively inexpensive. Remnant carpets, and small area rugs placed in front of doors make the perfect size, and aren't too large that you feel you need to fill the entire space. Check out THIS article, to learn how to personalize an area rug for yourself.
For this project you'll need acrylic paint, cookie cutters, area rug, and a fabric paint brush.
