Craft with Resene from Woman magazine

Spruce up your outdoor area for spring soirées in the sun with a simple but stylish rug you can personalise with your own design.

How to make a stylish rug

You will need

  • Resene dropcloth
  • Resene decorator's sponge
  • Resene masking tape
  • Your preferred measuring tools
  • Scissors

Step by step instructions

How to make a stylish rug:

  1. Design a pattern for your rug (A).

  2. Protect your floor by putting down a Resene dropcloth.

  3. Find the centre of your rug and mark with tape (B).

  4. Tape the pattern onto the rug, leaving the areas you wish to paint bare, and covering the areas you want unpainted. Use scissors to cut clean corners on the tape (C).

  1. Using a Resene Decorator’s Sponge, press your chosen Resene paint colours over the bare sections of rug (D-E).

  2. Once dry, remove the tape (F-G).

  3. If you wish to add more to your pattern, repeat steps 4 through 6 using more of the same colours or adding new Resene colours (H).
