How To: Make a DIY Pouf Ottoman from an Inexpensive Floor Mat

created at: 07/23/2012

Floor poufs are hot decor items that typically carry hefty price tags. What if I told you that you could make one for about $10? You'd flip, right?? Well, get ready...    

After spotting these $250 poufs from West Elm, blogger Erika Brendle knew she had to make her own. A search for the perfect fabric left her uninspired until she spotted these $3 floor mats from IKEA. Bam! They were perfect. A little bit of measuring, cutting, and sewing later, she had herself a stylish pouf -- all for less than $10! Check out how she did it over on her blog Retropolitan.

Does Ikea still sell these rugs for so cheap?

Thanks for showing me that it's possible. I"ve always wondered....but wondering doesn't get results. Well done!

Q. - Did you encase the filler in something or just pour it in?

Q. - Any tips on needle type/size?

It looks nice, however it would look even better if the red lines were 'lined' up. Awesome job.
