Sunday Observer - - OBSERVER HOME - Www.diynet­work.com

This is an easy DIY that will us e up yarn stash in a heart­beat. It’s also a great way to add a bit of color and tex­ture to a space with­out spend­ing a lot of money.

Use medium to bulky weight yarn in var­i­ous colors to cus­tom­ize your space.

You’ll need:

Yarn (medium weight or bulky) Scis­sors

Non­slip rug pad or rub­ber con­tact pa­per



To make the pom poms, in­vert a chair and wrap yarn around two of the chair legs about 40 times. Tie off the ends, and then tie a length of yarn in the mid­dle of the hank of yarn looped around the chair legs. This will se­cure the hank. Re­move the hank from the chair legs and lay it on a ta­ble. Mea­sure down the hank a cou­ple of inches (depend­ing how big you want your pom poms to be) and tie it off, leav­ing the tails of yarn. Do this all the way down the hank of yarn. Cut in be­tween the tied off sec­tion, keep­ing the space on both sides of the tied sec­tion as even as pos­si­ble. Once it’s cut, you will be able to see the pom pom form.

Trim the ends to make the pom pom tas­sels the same size. Slip the tails from the mid­dle of the pom pom into the gaps on the non-slip rug pad and tie with a dou­ble knot to se­cure. Re­peat with an­other pom pom un­til you get your de­sired size of rug. Trim the ex­cess non-slip pad that the pom poms do not cover.

Lay out your rug and en­joy! Don’t be sur­prised if it’s claimed by a furry friend.
