Nothing can serve infinitely long. Even the beloved leather strap after a long use can tear, wear and even get bored. About straps made of artificial materials, you do not even have to say. Their lifespan is too short. However, do not rush to say goodbye to old things. Shake your wardrobes and wardrobes of your friends, collect about 10 straps and try to make an original carpet of straps with your own hands. Carpet of this kind will be an excellent addition to the interior executed in vintage style, retro and even modern. To make a similar carpet from leather belts is a task that is absolutely uncomplicated. It can be done in several ways, the only difference being in the method of fastening the belts to each other. The first option involves the presence of about 10-12 belts, regardless of whether they are natural or artificial, sewed, as well as twine (an ordinary rope will do). Initially, you need to prepare the belt by cutting offbuckles and making them the same long. Now in each of the belts should be made holes on each side, located 0.5 cm from the edge and 2-3 cm from each other. Then sew all the straps together, using a rope for this purpose. Choose the most convenient for yourself rope pulling order. You can sew along, across the belts, cross the cross, etc. If desired, it is possible to replace such fastening with metal clips. On the rug of belts they will look very organic. The second way of making a carpet from belts involves the use of a base. In this case, the straps can be laid out with various patterns in the form of a Christmas tree, a zigzag, a chessboard, etc. The order of preparation of belts is similar to the first. Take care that the belts are not rumpled, otherwise the carpet will become wavy. If you plan to lay out any pattern, the belts need to be cut into several pieces. But in this case, you need to think in advance about the form in which you want to lay out the pattern, and how long the cuts should be. For a basis you can use various dense materials. From the canvas you need to cut a rectangle of the desired size and lay out all the straps in the desired order on it. Before you stick the straps to the base, it's best totreat the inside with a degreaser. Choose special glue, designed specifically for leather and fabric surfaces. After the straps are glued to the substrate, remove excess glue with a cloth. Here such simple ways it is possible to make an original rug. It will perfectly match with a parquet board and a laminate.
