Who loves a cute pom pom? ✋✋

There's just something about pom poms that are so appealing right?

When I was a little girl, I remember my mom showing me how to make pom poms using cardboard circles. I was amazed!

But there are so many different ways to create these fluffy round balls of yarn. You can click here to see how I made a pom pom garland for Abby's room when she was little. I simply used my fingers to make the pom poms for this adorable garland.

Today I'm showing you how to make a pom pom using this pom pom maker. I've read about them, but had never used one and I was curious if it would actually make the process easier.

How to make a pink pom pom pillow

Before we get started, obviously you're not limited to pink 😍

I chose to make a pink pom pom pillow because it matches the other pink decor I have in my home currently, like my Valentines Day mantel with vintage floral garland and my new Valentines Day DIY wreath, and the blush pink I added to my dining table for winter.

I love pink, and it's a great color that can transition from winter right through to spring, but you use a color that you love! I just changed up my dining table decor and can't wait to share my simple Valentines Day tablescape with you! Watch for that next week. Not getting my weekly newsletter? Sign up here!

The video tutorial walks you through the process of making the pom poms, as well as how I attached them to the pillow. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO.

Here are the supplies I used.


Before you make your first pom pom, you need to decide how many pom poms you want on your pillow. I was going to do 4 rows of 4 pom poms, but decided to do 3, 2, 3, 2 and space them out differently. I kinda love how it turned out!

Aside from burning my finger on hot glue (I think I hid it pretty well in the video, but I was in pain...and I still have a blister!), this pillow was so easy to make!

I just found some finger tip protectors from the dollar store that I'll have to use when I hot glue stuff...'cause it's hot and it hurts when you get it on your fingers!

Just set aside an hour or so to make your pom poms. You'll need to keep track of how many times you wrap the yarn around each side of the pom pom maker, so all your pom poms turn out the same size!

And remember that super fluffy pom poms should be made with fluffy yarn. If you like the casual, imperfect look like my pillow, then use cotton yard. No matter what yarn you choose, you'll still need to give your handmade pom poms a trim, so have a pair of sharp scissors handy!

This is a great project to do while you're listening to music or watching TV. It's rather mindless and relaxing!

I chose to put the pom pom pillow on our vintage inspired daybed because I love how restful it looks! I've linked to all the products below in the SHOP THE POST widget. Don't forget that you can shop my house, room by room!
