Winter might be over, but it doesn’t mean we still don’t want to bundle up and get super cozy. Also, if you make one now it will be ready for next years Winter. Where you expect windows, doorways, attics, and other such areas of houses and buildings can allow a lot of heat to escape, and it gets replaced by much colder air.

One area in particular that’s often overlooked is floors. If you have hardwood or solid flooring in your home then you know just how freezing they can get. The easiest solution to eliminate cold floors is to throw a rug down, but that can get very expensive very fast.

Nice, thick, quality made rugs are usually quite pricey and if you need several of them they’ll cost you a lot. Instead of searching all over for a rug that fits your budget and style, try making one that’s affordable and exactly what you want.

It’s not as hard or impossible as you may think to weave together a rug. With this tutorial from Expression Fiber Arts you can create a beautiful, thick, durable crochet rug that will keep your toes warm on all those upcoming chilly nights.

The rug shown in the video is made from gray merino wool roving that has been crocheted together by hand without using any tools. Wool roving is a thick bundle of raw fibers that have been lined up neatly and made ready for further use, they usually get spun into yarn.

This project took a total of 7.5 pounds of roving to complete, so keep that in mind if you plan on making the same one or a larger rug. If you use a pricier type of wool, like merino, it will be a lot more expensive than if you use less costly materials, such as cotton or bamboo.

To make the rug it’s best to refer to the video tutorial. The woman showing you how to do it, Chandi, has a bunch of helpful pro-tips and hits on a lot of details that a brief overview would lack. This is one of those projects that’s easier to do, and turns out best, when you have a visual guide showing you exactly what to do every step of the way.

If you already know how to crochet then you’ll easily pick up the process. If you’re not familiar with crocheting, don’t worry! This is something you can definitely do and the video thoroughly explains and guides you through it from start to finish.

The pace is slow enough so that you can better see exactly what to do, and that makes it very easy to follow and replicate. When it’s all over you’ll end up making a beautiful, thick rug that will last a lifetime and keep your feet warm all winter long. Check it out and give it a try!

Man Squirts Food Coloring Into Cup Filled With Rice. When He Adds The Egg It’s Stunning!

Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition in many households this time of year. Perhaps the most well known method is coloring eggs with a Paas decorating kit. It seems to be sold everywhere and contains color tablets, stickers, egg holders and even a little wire egg-dipper contraption that can barely hold an egg. The whole thing is very convenient but also filled with chemicals. There is an equally easy and convenient way to dye eggs that can be done with things already on hand and, most importantly, naturally.

All you need is hard boiled eggs, dry white rice, food coloring, cups and lids or some other type of covering. Be sure to use cups that are large enough to hold an egg with enough room left over to shake an egg around in. For an easy ‘lid’ you can secure the cup opening tightly with saran wrap. Begin by placing about 3-4 tablespoons of rice into a cup.

Drop in at least a couple of good squirts of food coloring (you can always add more later to get a darker or different color), and mix it up well with the rice. Now you can place an egg into the cup, secure a lid on top, and shake it gently around. You should be able to see the food coloring start to transfer from the rice onto the egg. When you like what you see, take the egg out and set it aside to dry off. That’s it!

Get experimental by using more or less dye and longer or shorter shake times to get different results. Its super simple and affordable to do, not to mention easy to clean up. Best of all, you can eat the eggs afterward since the coloring is only on the outside shell and no heat or chemicals are used in the process.
