How many times will depend on how fluffy you want them and the yarn you're using (thick or thin).

Step 3: Separately cut another strand of yarn

Cut a random strand of yarn separate from the roll you just wrapped (about 7-10" should be good).

Step 4: Tie the new piece between the rolls

Tie the yarn together on one side, but don't create a knot just yet.

Step 5: Remove roll and cut the loop in half

Slide one of the toilet paper rolls out from the yarn and cut down the center of the loop that is left.

Take the other toilet paper roll out and tie the strand that is wrapped around the the center into a tight knot.

Trim the poof so that all the strands are even and consistent with one another. Leave the tail on!

Feed the tail from the separate strand through the grids in the rug mat and tie it in place.

Step 1: Clean your rug and cut loose strands

Vacuum your rug and spot-clean any major stains. Cut away any loose fibers or pilled threads.

Step 2: Prepare your light paint

Use a foam roller for better coverage. You can use any light paint color you would like.

Step 3: Paint your rug in two coats

If you'd like a flat base, you may have to apply several coats of paint.

The tape will act as guidelines for you to draw out your pattern accurately.

Cut out the desired geometric/bohemian-style shapes and trace around them with a Sharpie marker.

Bohemian style rugs are full of patterns that are overdyed or muted with a blend of bright colors.
