Introduction: How to Make a Pom-Pom Rug
Everyone loves a fun and easy DIY Today I am going to show you how to make a Pom-Pom rug in 6 easy steps. This is a cute way to add a little color to any room in your house, weather it is your bedroom, bathroom, or an entryway.
Step 1: Step 1
The first thing that needs to be done is to cut the non-slip rug to the desired size. If wanted, you can measure so it can be a specific size or just eyeball it. There are multiple sizes at the store so cutting may not be necessary if it already the right size.
Step 2: Step 2
Take both the toilet paper rolls and flatten them and place them on top of each other, so the flat part is on top of each other. They don't need to completely flat you want a little space between them.
Step 3: Step 3
Start to wrap the selected color of yarn around the toilet paper rolls, with the holes of the rolls not being covered (vertically). Wrap the yarn around the toilet roll multiple times, about 120 times will make them very full. This can also be done paper towel rolls to make them larger.
Step 4: Step 4
When done wrapping the yarn cut it. Take a smaller piece of yarn and wrap in between the rolls (horizontally) over the other yarn, after that step is finished tie the smaller piece of yarn in a very tight knot, as the knot is being tied take the yarn off the toilet paper rolls. There should be a tail from the yarn tied into a knot.
Step 5: Step 5
Now you will see that the yarn makes loops, take the scissors and cut the loops in half. If desired the pom-pom can be brushed out to be fluffier. Continue to make pom-poms until there is enough to fill the surface of the non-slip rug pad.
Step 6: Step 6
Take the non-slip pad and place it on a flat surface. Lay out the pom-poms on the rug to see how many are needed and make a design if desired. It helps to take a picture so there is a visual to look back on. Remove the pom-poms, then start to pass both sides of the yarn through the holes in the rug, turn the rug around to tie knots on the other side, after that trim the tails of the yarn so they aren’t very long, an inch should be fine. Continue this step until the rug is to your satisfaction.
