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 :-)

If you really want to make this quick check out my instructable

How many different colors of yarn did you use?
How big was the plastic canvas
Awesome idea, it's now on my to do list

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.
