Picture of How to Quickly Make a Pompom Rug

We have spools of yarn leftover from a yarn art I made last year and they're just sitting in the stockroom so I decided to make a pompom rug for our little girls' playroom.

Step 1: Gather the Materials

Tie the yarns tightly with about 2 inches of space in between.

Adjust the yarn to make a more rounded shape pompom.

Step 4: Tie the Pompoms on the Rug.

Looks great. Way better than anything that you could buy from a store and it is one of a kind.

Thank you. I found it to be too colorful but our little girls love it. =)
