Crochet and rope rugs are fun, functional, decorative, and a great way to use up odds and ends, as well as yarn that’s too scratchy for anything else. Now that the sun is shining and lovely breezes are blowing, interiors can start to feel a little drab and dusty. A colorful rug might be just the answer you’re looking for.

So instead of having to settle for a design that you’re not totally in love with, or having to spend way too much for that dream design, do the (not so) unthinkable and actually make your own rug.

Bath Rug With Rope

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

These clotheslines work perfect for this crocheted rug. They’ve got just just enough softness and loft and are still stiff enough to feel worthy of rug material. Get the tutorial at Mama in a Stitch.

Sea Turtle Rug

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

A perfect rug for children’s rooms, particularly with any sort of ocean or reptile theme. So fun! Get the tutorial at Ravelry.

Painted Rope Rug

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

Sturdy rope and silicone paint combine to make a rug that can stand up to wet shoes and boots. Use thick rope and silicone paint to create a chic doormat that will add a splash of color to any entryway. Get the tutorial at HGTV.

Mandala Floor Rug

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

Isn’t this just gorgeous?! Lovely in pink, but easily done in a neutral or darker color as well. You can make it from Zpaghetti or make your own T-shirt yarn! Get the tutorial at Tuts+.

DIY Rope Art

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

This tutorial is technically for rope wall art, but the results could totally be a rug. Glue together a rug with charmingly uneven ends, or just paint a ready-made one. Get the tutorial at Brit + Co.

DIY Nautical Knot Doormat

Rugs have a profound impact in a home: they can tie a whole room together, serve as a designated play or reading area, introduce some color or texture to a dullish area or act a focal decor piece.

You can go full-nautical by using sailing or lobster ropes, but these also look lovely when done with a natural jute or sisal. Get the tutorial at Cornmaiden.

Save these rugs for later! Don’t forget to follow A Matter of Style on Pinterest for more great decorating ideas or check out some of the gift decorations available in store.
