My hose rug I made from old hoses and a large bag of black zip ties
I started on the ground zipping my hoses together. I started with 31 inch long hose and started to bend it around and around.
I quickly decided to do it on a table. I can't sit on the ground like I used to when I was younger
Cut one hose and added another one in a different color. I also found not to pull the zip tie to tight. Just enough to hold the hose securely to the previous row. I didn't measure how far apart I placed the ties, I just placed them were I thought it needed to be held to the previous row. I would say the average is about 4 inch apart.
Break time..need food! After all, it is the 4th of July
Had to move to a bigger table. You may want to start with a larger table to begin with. You can see hubby working on his table he tiled in the background. I will share his work in a later post.
Look at all those ends
Break time (this is taking longer then I thought it would, lucky it is so nice outside and it's a relaxing task) For those asking if it's hard on your hands...not at all. But using a needle nose pliers even makes it easier.
Finished up, but to dark to clip the ends or even get a good picture. Just in time for the fireworks.
Next day..Mike clipped all the ends.
Love the way it turned out and it feels like walking on crocs. I may have used more zip ties then needed. But I figured if some broke it would not make a difference. I used four different hoses. The end size is 61" by 35" I think I may even make a round one when I get some more old hoses.
