How to make a pom pom rug

Have you ever seen a pom pom rug? We love them because they are very original, fun and totally customizable. To make one you will only need a bit of rope, pompoms and adhesive … super easy!



  •  Pair of scissors


  •  Instant universal adhesive
  •  String
  •  Pompons


1. Prepare the base of your pom pom rug

This project is very simple: the process consists mainly of creating a rope base for the carpet and gluing all the pompoms on it.

For the base, what you have to do is take your rope and wind it in a spiral and on itself, applying glue to all the rope joints, so that you end up with a circular and compact base. When you have achieved the desired dimensions, cut the string and close the base with a point of glue.

We have used the Ceys brand SuperUnick as an adhesive, which is multi-surface and instantaneous, which is why it helps us to glue both the rope and the pompoms.

2. Glue the pompoms

Second and last step! It is time to glue your pompoms on the string base. Get creative and design your rug to your liking. We decided to make our design a bit “chaotic” and multi-colored, with pom-poms of different sizes. How would you do it? You can play with the pompoms and their colors however you want: write messages, make shapes, drawings … take the rope as a canvas on which to create.

Take each pom pom and apply a dot of adhesive on it. Then, go placing them one by one on the base according to the design you have in mind, until it is completely covered.
