STEP 8: Secure the pom pom
Take the other toilet paper roll out from the other side of the poof and tie the strand that is wrapped around the center into a tight knot.

STEP 9: Cut the other loop
Now cut the looped side of the poof down the center as you did with the other side.

STEP 10: Trim and shape
Now trim the poof so that all the strands are even and consistent with one another. Leave the tail on! Do not cut the strand wrapped around the middle as it will serve as the anchor to tie the poofs to the rug mat.

STEP 11: Tie on your poofs
Now for those of you who are only using pre-made poofs, here is where you can join in the fun! Grab your pre-cut rug mat and place your poofs to make sure you have enough to cover the mat and also that they are positioned as you would like. One by one use the tail and feed it through the grids in the rug mat and tie it in place. Be sure to tie a nice tight knot so they stay in place.
Keep tying all the poofs until you are complete. The back should look like the picture on the right.
