From 3D maze rugs to eco-friendly bathmats to room-sized chevron rugs, we’ve shared quite a few DIY flooring projects here on Curbly. But this rope and pompom rug definitely takes the cake when it comes to originality and, well, straight up pizazz!
The original rug pictured was created as part of a window display for clothing brand Free People, but after heeding cries from fans and patrons, they decided to share a tutorial for making your own. Lucky us, right? Whether you choose to use it as a runner in a hallway or give it the wall hanging treatment as a piece of textile art, there’s no denying that it’ll add some serious flair to your home. Here’s what you’ll need:
- a large piece of cardboard
- black marker
- rope in various sizes and colors
- neon twine

This could be made using canvas as the base instead of cardboard. However, I still don’t see it being washable-rope would not wash well! I will make mine using canvas or some type of heavy upholstery fabric as the base.
