Making a DIY pom-pom rug is a fun and creative project that can add a cozy touch to any room. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating your own:

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Yarn in various colors
  • Rug mat or non-slip rug pad
  • Scissors
  • Pom-pom maker or cardboard circles
  • Marker (if using cardboard circles)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks


1. Prepare Your Pom-Poms:

  • If you’re using a pom-pom maker, follow the instructions to make pom-poms in your desired size and colors. If you don’t have a pom-pom maker, you can use cardboard circles instead:
    • Cut two identical circles out of cardboard, with a hole in the center of each.
    • Stack the circles together and start wrapping yarn around them until the hole in the center is filled.
    • Use scissors to cut the yarn around the outer edge of the circles.
    • Slide a piece of yarn between the two cardboard circles and tie it tightly around the wrapped yarn. Remove the cardboard circles, fluff up the pom-pom, and trim any uneven edges.

2. Plan Your Design:

  • Decide on the pattern and arrangement of colors for your rug. You can create a random pattern or follow a specific design.

3. Attach the Pom-Poms to the Rug Mat:

  • Lay out your rug mat or non-slip rug pad on a flat surface.
  • Use a hot glue gun to attach the pom-poms to the rug mat, spacing them out evenly according to your design. Be generous with the glue to ensure the pom-poms are securely attached.

4. Fill in the Gaps:

  • Once you’ve attached all the pom-poms, go back and fill in any gaps or sparse areas with additional pom-poms as needed. This will help create a fuller and more cohesive look.

5. Allow the Glue to Dry:

  • Let the glue dry completely before moving or using the rug. This will ensure that the pom-poms are firmly in place.

6. Trim any Excess Yarn:

  • Use scissors to trim any excess yarn sticking out from the pom-poms. This will give your rug a neat and finished appearance.

7. Enjoy Your Pom-Pom Rug:

  • Once the glue is fully dry and any excess yarn is trimmed, your DIY pom-pom rug is ready to use! Place it in your desired location and enjoy the cozy and colorful addition to your home decor.

Creating a pom-pom rug is a creative and rewarding project that allows you to customize the colors and design to match your style. Have fun experimenting with different yarns and patterns to create a unique and personalized rug that will brighten up any room!
