- 12″ x 18″ plastic canvas (Or any size you prefer) – If looking in the craft store for this, check near the embroidery supplies.
- Assorted pom poms – You will need a lot of poms! We used about a pound for this rug. You can also buy packs in a single color to match a specific room in your home.
- Hot glue gun
- Glue sticks for hot glue gun
- Wax paper
- Nonslip rug pad
Cover your work station in wax paper. Hot glue will seep through the plastic canvas — this keeps the pom moms secure, but you don’t want any glue getting on your table!
Put a drop of hot glue on a pom pom and stick to your plastic canvas. Watch your fingers, as glue will go through the plastic weaving.
Alternate colors and sizes, gluing pom poms to the canvas until completely covered. Remove any loose glue strands.
Cut a piece of nonslip rug padding to fit and glue to the back of your canvas. This will keep your rug in place on the floor and prevent sliding when stepped on. Allow glue to dry completely before using.
