How To Make A DIY Pompom Pillow

For today’s monthly creative blog hop, I’m jumping on the pompom bandwagon and sharing a DIY Pompom Pillow.   

I received a pom pom maker for Christmas and let me tell you, this thing is addictive! Let me show you how I took an existing pillow and updated it with pompoms.

This easy addition turns a cute, but simple pillow, into an absolutely adorable pillow!

This maker is great because you can make four different size pom poms. For the pillow, I went with the large size and used my favorite thick and quick yarn.

I started with a DIY Canvas Pillow that I made from this tote bag. It already had a cute gold hello on one side:

I don’t sew at all! I would love to learn, but for now, I resort to lots of no sew projects.

Canvas bags are great to turn into pillows if you don’t sew because 3 sides are already sewn. You just cut off the handles and add Poly-Fil .

Then either close it with fabric glue or Stitch Witchery. It works like a charm!

You can see an easy tutorial for how I painted the deer silhouette here.

I followed the instructions exactly and made four good size pompoms for the corners of the pillow.

Simply tie each pompom to the corners of the pillow. Again, if you sew I would definitely recommend sewing them, but they seem to be pretty secure.

Also, this pillow is more for decorative use so it should hold up!

Here is a great YouTube video for using the pom pom maker if you are more of a visual person:

I will be sharing my Winter Mantel tomorrow and wanted to show you a peek of the pompom garland I made for the mantel. I told you these were addicting!

[…] If you follow me on instagram you know that I am a Chalk Couture Designer and have been having so much fun creating with the gorgeous transfers they carry. You can check out their line of products here. I updated the entryway bench with a collection of DIY deer pillows. The two burlap pillows were made using Chalk Couture and pillow covers from the craft store. As I don’t sew (yet) using pillow covers and transfers is an inexpensive alternative to Holiday pillows, which can be costly.  You can see how I made the middle pompom pillow here. […]
