Ever wanted to put a rug somewhere, but you just couldn’t find the right size? Odd shaped areas can be tricky, but you can cut down a rug to fit exactly where you need it in no time at all. With only a marker, a yard stick, utility knife and a hot glue gun, get the perfect size rug to fit your space in just a few minutes.
First measure from the corner in however much you want to trim on each end. I wanted to trim off two inches, so I marked two inches in on each side.
Then draw a line from end to end to mark your cut line.
Next, take a utility knife and cut along the line (using a sharp blade is the key to a clean cut.)
Lastly, run a thick line of hot glue, right on the edge, to seal the rug fibers to the matting of the rug. Let it completely cool and you’re done. You can customize your rug to fit your space in about five minutes – and it’s so easy that anyone can do it.
