Hooked rugs are fun projects to do. However, a large hooked rug project can be a little difficult to manoeuvre while working on the project. Making a rug hooking frame is very simple, and will hold the rug tight so the working surface is worked on easily. This rug hooking frame is made out of plastic PVC pipe and is very lightweight.

Things you need

  • (4) 3-foot lengths of 2 inch PVC pipe.

  • (4) elbows

  • PVC Glue

  • (4) snap clamps

  • Hacksaw

  • Measuring tape

Measure and cut the PVC pipe into 4 three-foot lengths with the hacksaw, or have the lumberyard cut it for you. Dry fit first for proper fitting.
