There’s a whiff of Spring in the air, if you aren’t still trudging over snow, so it’s definitely a good time for projects that create great pieces for the garden. Anything to help make that perfect outdoor living area to enjoy in the warmer months.

We found two great outdoor rug DIYs from two of our favourite creative maker blogs – A Beautiful Mess and Apartmenttherapy .

The first from ABM is a great, fun project, weaving your own rug from scrap fabric and finishing with a protective spray.

The second from ApartmentTherapy is a stylish idea to make an outdoor rug with waterproof fabric and then create a design on it waterproof acrylic paint.
