A friend of mine is expecting a baby and she is in the process of decorating the new nursery. She asked if I could help her come up with some unique decorating ideas. She had her color palette all picked out and I went in search of some DIY projects we could do for a baby’s room. On pinterest I saw a very popular idea for making a DIY Pom Pom Rug that I thought would look awesome in the nursery.
Pom Pom rugs can be used in any room of the house not just a nursery. You can color coordinate them to match any room you want a soft squishy rug under your feet whether it be by your bed, in the bathroom, or in front of your favorite chair. I don’t recommend these as door rugs where high traffic dirt and grime will get on them.
These are really easy to make, the most time consuming part is making all the pom poms that you will need to complete the rug. There are several methods available for making DIY Pom Pom Rugs and I’ve included the 3 most popular ways below.
The 1st is a technique for making pom poms is by wrapping yarn around your hand as shown below.
The 2nd way to make pom poms is to use cardboard rings instead of your hands. The video below will show you how it is done.
The 3rd technique for making pom poms is to use a tool called a Clover Pom Pom. You can buy them at Amazon for under $6:
