How Do I Bind a Rug?

Answer

The first step in binding a rug is to measure the rug's edges to ensure that they are of the desired length after which the carpet binding should be lined up along the edge of the rug. The rug edge should then be pressed down onto the exposed adhesive on the carpet binding. You should then plug in the glue gun then apply hot glue to the carpet binding and work until the entire side of the rug is finished.
