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.

hey there!! that is absolutely amazing!! it reminds me of all different flavoured icecream scoops... yum! Did you use a pom pom maker for this? I've started making them by hand with the cut out cardboard donuts buts its taking forever!! Such a great idea thanks for sharing :)

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!

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.

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.
