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.

  20. Super jolie!!! et question lavage ?les pompoms tiennent?merci

  21. Hey! I love this idea. Do you think hot glue would work instead of felt glue?

  22. 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.

  23. Great Idea to use pom poms in a pillow. I really want to try it as fast as possible. Here is my blog: Mandala tapestry
