MY INSPIRATION

I found this pillow at Anthropologie and fell in love with it. They are very well made and the pom-poms make then sassy and fun. You can see them HERE.

Great room with fireplace and chairs with a pom-pom pillow on each.

HOW TO MAKE A POM POM PILLOW

Don’t you love diy’s that don’t have a long commitment? I made this pillow in a couple of hours one afternoon!

And it’s not rocket science. Once you get the knack of making the pom-poms you can whip them out in about two minutes and thirty seconds. How do I know? I timed myself making a pom pom. It took two minutes and eighteen seconds!

Then it’s a matter of gluing the pom-poms on to the pillow!

HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Nothing complicated here! You will need just a few things to make this delightful home decor DIY.

Here’s what I used to make this DIY…

  • pillow 18 inches or more (my pillow was 22 inches)
  • yarn (see my yarn HERE and HERE)
  • pom-pom maker (see it HERE)
  • scissors
  • hot glue

I chose two cotton yarns. One in white and one in a cream color. I like the look of cotton pom-poms for this sweet project.

The first thing you need to do is to get to know your pom-pom maker! It’s a funny little gadget! Once you get comfortable with it you can become a pom-pom making machine!

The instructions were on the back of the package the pom-pom maker came in.

Here’s how the maker looked while I was making a pom-pom.

This DIY is not rocket science! You can make as little or as many pom-poms to embellish your pillow!

I liked the look of the Anthropologie pillow so I used it as a template, of sorts!

After I made 14 cotton pom-poms I gave any long ends a bit of a haircut with my scissors. I trimmed up any overly long cotton yarn strands.

I really wanted the pom-poms to be a bit wild. So I didn’t cut every strand all precisely the same length.

I placed the pom-poms on the pillow cover and when I liked the spacing and design I hot glued them down. It’s that easy!!!

I have another pillow cover just like the one I used to make the pom-pom pillow and will make a matching pillow!

Just think of all the beautiful pillows you can create!

  1. Love this post. I’m a pompom kinda’ gal. Definitely making a few. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These pillows are really cute. Did you mix the white and cream yarn in one pom pom or just ordered 2 different colored yarns for separate pillows? Thanks

  3. So cute! But I think I would have sewn them to the pillow cover. Then I could re-style them when my taste changes. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Have a blessed day!

    1. I have a huge basket that most of the toys fit in. I put it in the corner of the sunroom. When they play with them the toys are everywhere. I just embrace the chaos and love having them when they are here.
