I got some left over carpet with matching colors ,cut it to match the step,inserted metal rings at the corners....


Hi Danoren, great idea. I noticed the edges of your carpet are a little frayed... since that is probably plastic carpeting, you can melt the edges a little with a propane torch and that should cure the fraying (I'd remove them from the step before doing that).

Best wishes.....

I made these from some indoor/outdoor carpet, they've been on for a year and look new. I had some narrow aluminum strap from some other project. Used some self drilling metal screws to attach them. If I need to replace it, just uncrew the straps, cut some new carpet, re-screw. Ya Iknow, one of the steps has the pattern different. The piece I bought was only big enough to cut that way. It seems like everyone that see's them out camping notices.

Used liquid nails to hold carpet. Carpet does not have rubber backing. Outdoor carpet purchased at Home Depot off of a large roll.
