If you are visiting from Gratefully Vintage welcome! Isn’t her home so warm and cozy? So many great decorating ideas! For today’s monthly creative blog hop, I’m jumping on the pom pom bandwagon and sharing a DIY Pom Pom 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 pom poms. This easy addition turns a cute, but simple pillow, into an absolutely adorable pillow!

How To Make A DIY Pom Pom 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 pom poms for the corners of the pillow.
Simply tie each pom pom 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 they 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 pom pom garland I made for the mantel. I told you these were addicting!
