About Latch Hook Rug Kits

If you want to make crafts but are a little unsure of your creativity skills, a latch hook rug kit might be the answer. Because they are so easy to use, they are quite popular with kids and teens, and you can find a vast inventory on eBay. Each kit comes with a plastic canvas made up of small colored squares that create a picture. The kits also include small pieces of yarn, and you simply match the color of the yarn to the color of the square, pulling it through with a latch hook tool. You may need to purchase the tool separately, depending on which kit you buy. Once all the yarn is in place, you can use the finished product as a rug or wall hanging. Latch hook rug kits feature patterns ranging from characters like Winnie the Pooh to real-life animals and nature scenes. Christmas kits are also popular, as are vintage kits from the 1970s and 1980s. They make excellent gifts for young people who are just learning to sew or work with their hands.
