Pompourri Rug

 Last week I posted a little pom pom teaser.  No one guessed what I was making with all of those pom poms.  I finally finished the project yesterday.  It's my new rug!

 I found some rug grid at the thrift store and have been saving it.  I first thought of using rag strips, but when I saw this rug I was inspired to make one.  It takes a while to get enough poms and it's simple to construct.  Just tie them onto the back of the plastic grid.  I'm getting some non-skid backing for it so the yarn threads will be hidden. 

 It's a great stashbuster and I'm more than pleased with how it turned out.  It's softy on bare feet and I'll step on it every morning when I get out of bed.

This is the only time any shoes will grace this rug!  Promise!

This is a great idea. I love it. I've been making pompoms on my train to work as I bought a pompom maker a few months ago. I was going to make some pompom bunting but you may have converted me to making a rug. :)

Oh frickin love it! HOw long did it take for you to make ALL those pom poms??

It took me about two weeks to finish all the poms. I made them while watching my favorite television programs or sitting outside in the sun. I like quick craft projects and seem to get ADD when they take too long, so doing this in free spaces of time worked best for me. :)

That's so cool (or should that say cosy!)

I recently got a few sizes of pom pom maker - so easy to use compared to pulling all the yarn through a little hole in the middle.

Love all the different colours xx

So clever. A fellow crafter pointed me in your direction and I am now pom pom mad too, Poming at any opportunity!

Can you tell me about washing it? I am currently making a pom-pom wreath and would *love* to make this but would be worried to put it in the washer/dryer because then all the pom-poms would fall apart...
