Make a rug out of pom poms!
This is a great project to bust your stash of yarn! The rug is super soft and feels great on bare feet. :)

  • How to make a mat/rug. Pompourri Rug - Step 1
    Step 1

    You'll need some plastic rug grid and yarn of course. You can find rug grid at many fabric stores. I was lucky enough to find mine at the thrift store.

    Once your poms are made, tie them to the squares on the grid.

    Step 2

    You'll need to make quite a few poms! But, it's soooo worth it!

    I put non skid on the back.

    I haven't figured out how I will keep this clean other than shaking it out. I'm keeping mine on the side of my bed so my bare feet hit it's royal softyness every morning. No dirty shoes for this baby!

Great idea!! Whenever I see those lovely, expensive yarns, on clearance I can't resist buying it. Over the past several years, I have bought a lot of yarn, but not a lot of one color/type, so I am always looking for creative & innovative yarn projects that incorporate a variety of colors and yarns.

How adorable and fluffy soft that looks. Great idea! May suggest using Scotch Guard to help keep it clean. You use several thin coats, letting it dry in between. To wash it I would fill your bathtub with enough lukewarm water to cover then some gentle detergent like Woolite and just gently agitate it a little with your hand. Then rinse with cool water and lay flat or hang to dry.
