Picking out rugs is sooooo hard for an indecisive like me, so I thought I would go ahead and make one…. turns out that was just as hard to decide on. Nonetheless, I made a fun and fluffy pom pom rug and thought I would share my experience. It is great, because you can customize the colors and textures of the rug as well as the size and shape! With some pre-made pom poms, a bit of yarn for some custom ones, and a rug mat you are in business to make this great pom pom rug!

STEP 2: Make your own pom-poms
If you are making any pom poms for your rug, you will need the next 10 steps. If you are just using pre-made pom poms, you can skip ahead! The first step for making your own large pom is to grab 2 toilet paper rolls and, while keeping them together, wrap yarn around the rolls a bunch of times. Depending on how fluffy you want and the yarn you are using (thick or thin) you can wrap it anywhere between 16-40 times.
STEP 6: Tie it together
Tie the yarn together on one side, but don’t create a knot just yet. Wrap it between the toilet paper rolls again and tie it in place, but again hold off on creating a knot.
