Ok, so this has to be one of the easiest Ikea hacks out there. You know those faux sheepskin rugs that have been flying out of the bins lately? Well, simply buy two, sew them together, and voila! You now have a fabulous rug that is extra long with a fun, interesting, organic new shape. It is perfect for a hallway, beside your bed, or in an extra long and narrow area.

I used a thick multifilament polyester thread meant for canvas and upholstery to make sure they stayed secure. I hand sewed the lining edge of both rugs together. It took me about an hour from start to finish and cost a whopping $20. Not bad. So go throw on a mindless movie and start sewing your rugs together!
