We’ve been spending a lot of time inside lately. With heat in the high 80’s and 90’s this week, it’s just been too hot to spend every afternoon outside. That means that we’ve been trying to keep busy inside.

Time to open the craft box!

It’s no secret we’re not the most crafty here, but there are a few crafts that are so nice and simple that even we can manage. This is one of those crafts.

How to Make a Pompom Rug DIY

This is a pretty simple craft, so most of this you’ll likely have on hand anyway. The hardest piece to find is probably the plastic canvas. You can find this in a craft store near the embroidery section, but it may just be easier to pick it up on Amazon.

What you’ll need

  • Plastic Canvas. Any size is fine, but we used a 12 inch by 18 inch piece. This plastic canvas is the crucial piece to making this craft easy and fun. We found the best price on Amazon. See prices here.
  • Pom Poms. We used different sizes and colors in a multi-pack. We used packs of assorted sizes and colors. About one pound of poms is right for the 12 x 18 size piece. See on Amazon here.
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Glue for hot glue gun
  • Wax Paper
  • Nonslip pad for rug

The steps to do this are pretty simple, but it does take a little bit of time to put together. This is the perfect craft to do in front of a good Netflix binge, or a HGTV marathon.

Here’s how to put your pompom rug together

Place wax paper all over your work station. This is to keep hot glue that falls through the plastic canvas from sticking to your table.

Put a drop of hot glue on a pom pom and stick to the plastic canvas. This is hot, so make sure that your fingers don’t get burned.

Alternate sixes and colors of poppoms until the canvas is covered.

Remove loose glue strands.

Tip! Add a piece of nonslip rug padding to the back of the canvas with hot glue.

These pompoms are very neat and equal lengths of thread on both sides (before cutting), but I think there are much easier ways to make them (and more than one at the time). I respect your effort though. Love how you came up with the rug idea, I would like to use it for my babies’ room 🙂 Thanks for sharing.?
