DIY POM POM Rugpompom-diy-rug

Skill level: Intermediate

Cost: $30

Time: 30 minutes


  • scissors
  • 2 toilet paper rolls (empty)
  • wool yarn- various colors, textures and sizes
  • non-stick rug mat


  1.  Stick fingers into the rolls and start wrapping the yarn around both.
  2.  Keep wrapping until you get the size you want.
    1. Reminder that the sizes of each pom pom should be different
  3.  Cut Another piece of string and weave it between the two rolls, so that it is in the middle and wraps around the entire thing.
  4.  Tie that same strand once and remove both rolls by pulling them out.
  5.  Tie an even tighter knot, but leave long strands. These ends will be used to attach the pom pom to the rug mat.
  6.  Snip through the loops the whole way around and then attach to your mat.
