I turn plastic into excellent DIY doormats. I use newspaper bags, bread wrappers and anything flexible that can be cut into strips. A 3-by-4-foot mat requires approximately 50 newspaper bags to make.
Other than the bags, a big, fat crochet hook, some time, and a little creativity is all you’ll need to make an upcycled plastic rug. Use any basic mat or rug pattern, and remember that no one will check your work for mistakes.
