I’ve been wanting to make a diy pom pom rug for the longest time and I finally had the time to create it recently. My daughter really wanted one for her room so we made hers first. My two sons now each want one so I’ll be making a couple more I guess! 😉
What’s step one? First choose your yarn colors! You can choose as many or as few as you please. My daughter chose these colors and she didn’t do a bad job if I say so myself! You don’t have to use this particular yarn, but the one I used is Craft Smart yard from Michaels.
Next step is to make the pom poms. I’ve seen people use paper towel holders to spin their yarn around, but I just used my hand. Just take the yarn and go around as many times as you wish. The more times you go around, the more fluffy the pom will turn out.
Cut a piece of string and lay it on the table. Once you have your desired amount of string that you wish around your hand, cut it off and place it on your single string.
Next cut open the loops. Trim your poms until they are even and the length you want. Fluff them all up!
So. Many. Pom. Poms! Love it!
Now it’s time to tie your pom poms to your nonslip rug underlay. I got mine at the Dollar Tree and this thing is huge! I had to cut it up to the size I needed.
You can make your colors go in a random order, do a pattern or use the colors to spell out a name. This is the fun part!
Make your rug any shape! My daughter and I chose to make hers a rectangle, but you can cut your underlay into any shape you want.
We love it and she loves stepping out on her rug when she wakes up in the morning she says 🙂
Let me know if you have made one of these before and how it turned out!
