Create a rug entirely out of pom poms!

Step 1: You'll Need

Picture of You'll Need


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

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? :)

maize (author)Muniosi2013-06-30

heh heh. :)

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

Brilliant!

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 :)

maize (author)Nashipashi2011-10-09

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!

cutecraftz (author)2011-08-05

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!

foobear (author)2011-08-03

neat!

scoochmaroo (author)2011-08-02

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.
