But this rug spent more time looking like this than working like a rug...
So I made it into a non-slip rug! Wahoo! Basically I just made this lovely diamond-design with my trusty hot-glue gun all over the bottom of the rug. Worked like a charm!
It still slides around a little bit (especially if the floor is dusty), but it doesn't crumple anymore, and it pretty much stays where I want it to be! Win for this Mommy!
UPDATE: I just washed this in the washing machine (I did NOT dry it in the dryer, the spin cycle was enough... plus, it was 112 degrees today... all I have to do is stick it outside for 10 minutes and it's dry!) And it washed up great! The glue is all still on the rug and it sticks great again! (I also mopped so all the fine dust that was letting it slip is gone!)
