It's no secret that Chevrons & zig-zags are popular. They can be described as "restrained chaos" and are both classical and fresh. We've featured a DIY tutorial in the past, but this time around I've found one that involves Rit Dye…and you know how much I like to get messy, huzzah!

Sarah over at Leaf House took on this bold and daring project by first taping off the pattern with painter's tape. Each section was then sprayed with dye and blotted with towels (lots of towels) to help ensure even coverage. We think it looks great and cost a small fraction of what one from a retail establishment would be.

This idea would work out splendidly on those short pile rugs, or even wool and natural fiber rugs that you so often find on Craigslist. To get the full step by step scoop on how this rug was made, hop on over to Leaf House | Hand Dyed Chevron Rug Tutorial to see how it's done!

Thanks Sarah!
