i really never thought i’d be using pom poms in a project, ever — but here i am, and i love it. i’m super excited about this pillow because it’s one of the easiest projects i’ve done in a while, and requires literally no crafting skills besides a little patience and something to watch on TV.

sadly i didn’t really do step by step photos because i was kind of winging it, but it’s so easy and self explanatory that you won’t need them.

like i said, i’ve never worked with pom poms before so i just bought some and didn’t know what i was doing. luckily the felt glue was sitting next to the pom poms at the craft store, so i decided to glue versus sewing (which would have been a nightmare, but not sewing obviously makes the pillow more delicate).

i also tried marking with a pencil the spots i’d add the diamonds, but it wasn’t really helping me – so i just started arranging the pom poms out on the pillow and once i liked the shapes, i’d glue away. carefully apply glue under each pom pom and once the diamond shape is down, push the whole piece down with your hand a bit to absorb some more glue. let it dry for 3 hours, but i’d recommend a day before placing it around your pillow insert.

i hope i made it clear enough for you! let me know if i didn’t and i’m happy to answer any questions you might have.

  1. This is the first pom pom DIY I’ve ever liked! So lovely. It would look great on a lumbar pillow, too.

  2. I absolutely love this! Great idea and thanks for sharing! I have some pom fringe curtains which I was surprised that I loved and wanted, so maybe I’m a pom girl after all?

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE this pillow Molly. I may have to try this next week. I have those pillow covers from IKEA all i need are some pom poms. Hopefully it turns out somewhat like yours haha.

  7. This looks beautiful. Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me as maintenance is too high. I made 1 pillow using your technique and it looked very pretty. However the white pompoms attract dust and lint and within a few days they all had grey/black spots which was lint. I could remove them by hand but it was not worth the effort. Did you have the same problem with your pillow?
    Using black or dark colored pompoms would work.
