Glowing Rope Rug DIY

October 30, 2012

Is this not the coolest idea?! Think of all the other possibilities! This would be really cool for the kids room and you could use it in place of a night light. Via Johanna Hyrkas. To make: Crochet around a rope light. To do this on your own I would recommend using spun wool roving like this, this or this. And use a skip knot (tying the fabric to your hook to begin), a chain (creating a ‘braid’), a slip stitch (pulling your hook through the stitch to join), and a single crochet (sc, the basic stitch in crochet). Keep the rope between the stitches. Get more instructions on how to make a rope rug from Upcycle Magazine.

Looks cool and I was going to make one, but when I called a led rope light manufacturer they thought it was a bad idea. They said the rope is not meant to be walked on and they would consider it a fire hazard :(

Do you think it is safe to use a a wall hanging? I am thinking of hanging it amongst glow in the dark stars to represent the moon.

What size is the rug and how much wool did it take?

What length rope lights are used in various sizes? An 18 foot rope light would make how big of a rug? 24' rope light? 30' rope light?
