Five Rugs You Can Make With Recycled Materials

5. Wine Cork Mat

This project, found on CraftyΒ Nest, makes use of wine corks to create a simple bath mat. Even though it was created for use in the bathroom, it will easily translate into a doorway or foyer rug. Since this requires a good amount of corks, you may want to ask friends to save some for you or inquire at a local wine shop to see if they can save you some after they have tastings.

Have you created any rugs using any of these materials? What other recycled materials would make great rugs? I would love to hear some of your ideas and see some of your projects. Feel free to leave any comments or links.

  1. Thank you for including my coffee sack rug! I’m off to check out the wine cork rug because I produce a lot of corks! I love all the ideas. I have a rope rug – but I purchased it. Next time I will make it! I make T Shirt Blankets and have lots of t shirt scraps and polar fleece. I’ve knitted a rug with the t shirt scraps. Now I’m going to try to knit with polar fleece strips. I think it will be soft for a bathroom rug. I’ll let you know how it goes as I plan to make a tutorial!
