I absolutely love this project idea. I have a ton of areas in my house that would benefit from little rugs like this (and probably bigger ones too).
I think this is a great way to use up old yarn. You could even probably upcycle the yarn from old sweaters and blankets too if you wanted. I would also think this would be a cool project to get the kids involved with as well!
Small rugs are a great way to add color, texture, and comfort to a room. But they can be expensive and there aren’t always perfect options available. Though it isn’t usually thought of as an item you can make yourself, there is a very easy DIY rug method that only requires yarn and scissors.
To start this project, you’ll need to make a bunch of yarn pom poms. There are also pom poms you can buy from craft stores, but if you don’t want to use pre-made pom poms, you can make your own. Choose a color of yarn and wrap it around your fingers or a fork, then tie a strand around the middle so that all of the yarn is held in place, and then cut the ends of each loop of yarn.
