I have some leftover astro turf and want to wrap my steps with it. Looking for suggestions on how to attach it

I make my own. I use outside carpet from a big box. I use a grommet kit I bought there as well. Then attach with stainless steel springs. Just like the step pads from camping world but about $30 for 2 complete sets (4 step pads total) including springs, carpet and grommet kit. Now when I need more I only have to buy the carpet and grommets( when they run out). Time to make 2 sets...about 30 mins.

2000 Cherokee, LEDs, solar, inverter, etc. '07 Tundra 5.7L DC-LB, modded as well.

What's a grommet? All I know is it comes in a kit.

X2 on the Industrial Velcro, just make sure you clean the steps with acetone before applying the Velcro. We were lucky 2 yrs ago while shopping at Lowes in Kissimmee, FL, they had a box of (24) 18" x 18" self sticking outdoor carpet tiles for $14. Used 3 for our steps and they work great.
