Pom Pom Pillow

Before I started working for the funnest ribbon and craft store in the whole wide world, I thought Pom Poms were only for Cheerleaders and cheering your favorite team onto a victory! Hehe! Little did I know that Pom Poms were also used for making some of the cutest crafts EVER, just like this absolutely adorable and easy Pom Pom Pillow by the always fabulous Kim from A Girl and A Glue Gun! This pillow is covered in yummy Pom Poms of delicious colors that is eye catching and one of a kind! Enjoy!

HI! I’m kimbo from a girl and a glue gun. My daughter’s birthday is coming up…and I’m surprising her with a total room redo! So I feel like everything I’ve been crafting is pink and cute and ruffly and pom pomy. And this pillow is no exception!

I got fun Pom Poms from The Ribbon Retreat. They also have a couple other sizes! The mini is soooo cute!

And ironically…I found this striped fabric in my stash! So, I used the lines as a guide and pinned it along. ..keeping the pattern as I go! (I got 2 yards of each and for a regular 16×16 pillow it was perfect! I had about 3 inches left over!)

Okay..I actually sewed some…and then hot glued some, and if you look at the picture you can’t really tell the difference! So if sewing isn’t your thing…hot glue is an option!!!

After you get it all on, you are going to snip off all the little poms along the edges of both sides so you can sew it without them in your way.

I ended up making an envelope back (go here for step by step instructions)

and just sewed the front to the back!

It’s so cute! I freaking love it! I can’t wait for her room to come all together!

    Oh, Kim! You have really outdone yourself with this perfectly adorable (or adorably perfect–your pick!) pillow project! I love the different colors, sizes, and styles of the pom pom trims you chose!

    I must confess that I actually cringed a bit when I saw the title of the post, because my experience with pom pom pillows goes waaaaaaay back to my youth and visits to the homes of elderly relatives and family friends. Even as a child, I thought that they were, um, “tacky”!

    But not this sweet, colorful, and bouncy pillow! It’s perfect for the bedrooms of both little girls and teens–and perhaps in more subdued shades, perfect for grown-up girls’ rooms, too!

    Now, of course, I don’t own nor do I know how to use a sewing machine… but I would buy a white or light solid-color pillow, ideally one with a removable insert. With a disappearing ink pen (the kind in which the ink is at least supposed to disappear within 48-72 hours on its own, without having to wipe it off with water), I’d draw straight(ish!) lines on the front, then hot glue the trim in place!

    Thank you for sharing another fun project, Kim! xoxo
