Easy DIY Felt Pom Pom Pillows

Accent pillows are one of the easiestĀ things you can use to change the look of a sofa or chair in your home, and they’re also one of the easiest DIY projects to do. I wanted to bring a little color and fun to a bench I have in my living room so turned to my fabric scrap collection for something to make pillows with. I had some felt and pom poms and thought they would be perfect pillows for the holiday season. To be honest they might stay well after that.

To make a basic pillow you just need to cut a piece of fabric to the size and shape of the pillow you want to cover. Leave about an inch on each side for seam allowance. Sometimes I cut the fabric on a fold so I end up with one longer piece rather than two pieces. Either way works fine.

Turn your pillow case inside out so the seams are inside. By the way you can do these steps with fabric glue like liquid stitch if you don’t have a sewing machine.

Insert your pillow stuffing and then use a slip stitch or fabric glue to close the open end.

Next figure out where you want to apply your pom pom trim and use fabric glue to adhere it! Easy!

I also cut some of the pom poms off and glued them on in a random pattern.
