Have extra yarn? Have friends with left over yarn... scoop it all up!
Step one: I made the first pompoms while watching TV in the evenings. As I made them I threw them in a basket until I had enough to make the rug. I made the first pompoms with an empty toilet paper roll initially, but then found this set of Pompom makers at Hobby Lobby. Much quicker and easier. ll
Step 2: While watching TV, I cut the canvas to the size I wanted and trimmed the sides for a finished edge. I made this one to be the length of the crib. Should you want to have a specific pattern, draw it on the canvas at this time. This one was a collage so no pattern needed here.
Step 3: While watching TV in the evenings, I sat on the floor with my basket of pompoms, tied the pompoms to the canvas in a random order.
Step 4: Enjoy! My grandaughter LOVES her soft bedroom rug!
