Pom-Pom Pillow

January 4, 2013 by 42 Comments

Tis’ the season for Pom-Poms; they are just so happy and fun!  After finding much inspiration in blogland,  I decided to make some pom-poms to cozy up one of the pillows I recently purchased.  The yarn I used was left over from another project and I had enough to make 6 – 2 inch pom-poms.


I used a piece of 4 inch cardboard and wrapped my yarn around it…about 50 times.  Then I slipped it off the cardboard and tied the middle. With the yarn being secured in the center,  I snipped the loops and gave it a good trim all over.


The pillow came from World Market and was purchased at a discount. I decided to change the look by attaching pom-poms to the buttons.  I simply glued them on .

Now isn’t that cute?  The pom-poms gave this pillow some character, cozied it up a bit?


That was a fun craft…really simple and quick.  My kinda project !

The weekend is just around the corner…I hope you have a great one!

    Very cute.
    Pompoms were a craft that I learned as a child. I loved doing chicks in soft yellow and then glued a tiny red beak… might think of this for Easter.
    Wishing you a lovely weekend,

    What a great idea! I pinned it to my “repurpose, recycled” board even though it’s a new pillow. You’ve totally remade it!

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    I may be adding these to something unexpected soon. Let me think…

    Those are just so cute and add so much personality to that pillow! I think you are right, a thick fuzzy yarn makes them
    look full. Thanks for sharing that idea with us. I saw your post over at StoneGable blog party.
