I used to be shopping via my Instagram feed the opposite day after I got here throughout a submit from one among my favourite inside design companies Leclair Decor. I immediately fell in love with the pom pom pillow on the sectional, I simply HAD to have it! Sadly I wasn’t in love with the $189 price ticket. So what does a DIY fanatic like myself do? I determine the way to make my very own!
Right here’s a detailed up of the unique pom pom pillow:
And right here is how my DIY pom pom pillow turned out:
- A throw pillow
- 13 pom poms
- A needle and thread
I lucked out on this DIY challenge as a result of I already had the right pillow to brighten. I knew straight away that I wished to make use of black pom poms for this pillow. I’ve been having a little bit of enjoyable including black accents into my decor these days. My condominium wanted a little bit of drama!

I sourced the yarn from an area greenback retailer for a whopping $3 (a steal in comparison with the unique $189 pillow). After you’ve made the pom poms, merely sew them on utilizing a needle and thread. All in all this DIY pom pom pillow took me an hour to finish and price me $3. It may not be as prime quality as the unique, however at a fraction of the price it makes me one completely happy DIY’er.
There are a lot of methods to make a yarn pom pom. The best method for me is to easily loop the yarn round my hand round 25 occasions. Reduce the yarn, leaving a string round 10″ lengthy. Gently pull the yarn off your hand and tightly wrap the 10″ string across the heart. Tie the 2 ends of string collectively tightly, creating a number of knots. The yarn will now be in a bow form. Reduce all 25 loops on every finish of the bow, and fluff up your pom pom. Trim to form if wanted.
After getting 13 pom poms its time to begin stitching. A quite simple needle and string pierced strait via the center of the pom pom is all you’ll must safe it in place. I copied the precise sample of the unique pillow, however be happy to make your personal!
I’m actually pleased with how this pillow turned out. I believe it provides a enjoyable mixture of texture and sample to my lounge, becoming in completely with my trendy boho fashion.
