Gather Your Carpet Squares

You might be lucky enough to have a sampling of carpet squares or tiles in your collection. If not, try Craigslist, eBay or find out if your local carpet store is willing to part with some random samples for a low fee. They don’t all have to be the same size, but they should at least be of the same type, such as deep, fluffy, or thin.

Arrange The Pieces

Lay the pieces together on the floor in the exact pattern that you want. It may take a few tries to figure out what you want the final look to be. You can cut extra pieces to fit inside any gaps.

Trim The Edges

Use an exacto knife or scissors to trim any stray carpet edges. This will keep the finished product looking neat and tidy!

Use Carpet Adhesive

Flip the carpet pieces over in the same exact spot that you laid it out, and apply carpet tape, TacTiles (or even Duct tape), to the bottom. Do this until every single carpet seam is connected together.

Non-Slip Liner

To keep your carpet from moving around, you should consider applying a non-slip backing, such as a shelf liner. You may be able to find this at the dollar store!
