Introduction: Pompourri Rug

Create a rug entirely out of pom poms!

Step 1: You'll Need


Plastic rug grid (can be purchased at fabric stores)
Yarn
Scissors
Pom Pom Maker

Make your pom poms and tie them to the rug grid.  It's that easy!

Step 2: You're Done!


Once you're finished, you can purchase some non skid to attach to the back.  I put mine on the side of my bed to enjoy every morning in bare feet.  I don't recommend letting shoes dirty it!

How long did it take to make all those pom poms? I'm moving into a new apartment in September and might make a black, grey and white one for in my bedroom :-)

How's that you've laced your shoes? Mind making or at least linking to a guide for that? :)

heh heh. :)

It's called 'lattice lacing'. Here's a site with a bunch of different ways to lace your shoes.

Yes, I used a pom pom maker and it goes so much faster! You can buy them at Joanns and use your 40% off coupon, which makes them very affordable. They sell them in packs of two, each a different size. Have fun!

AWESOME!! That is really cool! My mom taught me how to make pom poms with washers and I never really new what to do with them. Now I do!! :) Great idea!

Show us more! I love this idea, but I want to see how you made the pom poms and what your technique for laying them out and attaching them to the rug is.

maize (author)scoochmaroo2011-08-02

I used Pom Pom makers from Joanns. Use your 40% off coupon. They're the best and easiest way to make the poms. Didn't really have a technique for laying them out. :) Just tied them to the rug grid as I went along.
