Make really easy yarn pompoms and then a rug out of them – a DosFamily DIY

yarnrabbit

All the years I have been doing yarn pompoms by taking two cardboard discs and then filling them with yarn. This was very time consuming But this is a much easier way. I also made a rug out of them. All of this you can watch when me, Della, John & Nathalie was on Tv4′s morning show a week ago!

1. Wrap yarn around your hand. How more yarn you make the bigger pom pom. You can also wrap yarn around a piece of cardboard.

2. When you think you have enough pull a tread in the middle. You can pull it in under and between your fingers or just let the rolled peice slide off your fingers. Tighten with a knot.

4. It will look like a small bow of yarn.

4. Cut the sides of the bow – cut all the loops. Then the yarn will take the form of a pom pom.

5. You can always make trim the “ball” afterwards – you can even make it square.

6. For the rug I used a anti slip rug , that you normally place underneath rugs. The I simply tied the balls to the anti slip rug. You get the best results by placing the pom poms rather tight to each other.

Et voilà – this is what it can look like. You can also make it a square rug or in the shape of a hart or why not as a letter.

    Åh, vad fint! Man kan också linda garnet runt t ex två stolsben och knyta om med några centimeters mellanrum, om man vill göra flera bollar i samma färg snabbt och lätt.

      Dont know. I just bought wool but since it Isin the floor maybe something cheaper will do? It all depends on what you want to make!

    Fantastisk matta! Såg att nån ovan frågade om garn. Sitter också och försöker identifiera garntjockleken. Är det ull och typ drops eskimå..? Älskar färgkombon!!!

      Jag köpte ullgarn på panduro. Ingen aning hur tjocka. Finkar nog med det mesta! Xxx
