DIY POM POM RUG SUPPLIES
Plastic Canvas – You can use any size you wish, but I used a 12×18. If looking in the craft store for this, check near the embroidery supplies.
Pom Poms – I used packs of assorted sizes and colors. If you are trying to go for a particular color theme you can buy packs of individual colors. You will need a lot of poms! I used about a pound of poms.
Hot Glue Gun
Glue – lots!
Nonslip Rug pad (optional)
HOW TO MAKE A POM POM RUG
1 Cover your work station in wax paper. Hot glue will fall through the plastic canvas and you don’t want it sticking to your table!
2 Put a drop of hot glue on a pom pom and stick to your plastic canvas. Be careful of your fingers!
3 Alternate colors and sizes, gluing the pom poms to the canvas until completely covered.
4 Remove any loose glue strands.
5 If you want, you can cut a piece of nonslip rug padding to fit and glue to the back of your canvas.
Now you have a beautiful fun and colorful rug for your living room, bedroom or anywhere else you can think of!
