It’s a challenging time for the country and the world. While we’re quarantined, many of us suddenly have time on our hands. Some find that keeping busy with work helps to fight boredom and worry. If you’re wondering just what you’ll do stuck at home over the next days or weeks, now is a good time to work on some DIY projects, the kind you might have wanted to try but didn’t have the time for.
What Kinds of DIY Projects?
It’s always a great time to make a rug out of a carpet remnant. If your kids are home from school, they can help you with this project because Instabind is very simple to use. All you have to do is cut your rug to size, measure the perimeter, then order the Instabind style and color of your choice, and apply it to the carpet remnant using a glue gun. Instabind is great for updating the interiors of cars, boats, and motorhomes too if yours need some sprucing up before you take them out of storage in a few months. Check out the video:
Another kind of project to tackle would be a more involved Easter craft with your kids. If you’re thinking of dyeing Easter eggs, why not try decorating DIY Easter eggs with hot glue. You can make all sorts of fun patterns using a hot glue gun. Most of our customers use hot glue guns for work, but glue guns are also excellent for crafting. You can use them to make baskets or nests or projects for any school theme your kids are now studying at home.
It might be a good time to learn a new skill too, like rug carving, rug hooking, or braiding rugs. We have all the supplies you need for making rugs, carving rugs, and then adding non-slip backings to them so they will not slide on your floors and cause accidents. Making a rug really is an art and one that Americans did throughout the history of this country in order to add beauty and comfort to their homes and cabins. It’s the perfect practical, traditional craft.
For any flooring project involving nails or staples, we have those too. Give us a call at 1-888-800-BOND for any question you might have about our inventory of supplies. We’ll be happy to help you find the right ones.
