1. First Cut rug pad to desired size.
The desired rug pad size will help you to decide how many pom poms are required.
Now start to make pom poms enough to cover your rug pad.
I will teach you how to make yarn pom poms.
Take one end of your yarn and start wrapping it around your figures.
The length of your pom pom depends on how many figures you use. I have used three figures to make a medium size pom pom.
Do not forget to keep some distance in your figures while wrapping yarn around them.
If you also wish to make a medium size pom pom then keep on wrapping for 55-60 times.
