Add some cozy, boho vibes on your couch with this pompom throw pillow DIY. Tutorial below!
I love adding new things in my home as often as I can. Seeing as I work from home, I spend the vast majority of my time in the same space, so it’s bound to get a little boring faster. Which ultimately has a very negative effect on my creativity, and that’s just something I can’t afford. Plus, I’m super passionate about both interiors and DIY projects. So, introducing something new every once in a while, even if it’s something as small as a new vase, a tiny trinket dish on my nightstand, or a throw pillow like this one here, goes a really long way.
Often these are things I myself have made, painted, DIYed or whatever, which let’s be honest, shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing as I’m a DIY blogger and this is a DIY blog insert laughing-with-tears emoji. And so is this boho pompom throw pillow I’m actually talking here. My grandma sewed this white pillow cushion cover for me, and did a pretty darn great job too tbh (yet another thing on the “ask grandma to teach you to” list). And this other throw pillow with flowery print was not looking good at all for a while now haha. So, for some time I changed it and used just the plain white cushion cover. Until I got the idea and then found the time to add some pompoms on it and bring it to live a lil bit.
It’s a fairly simple DIY project, in fact I turned it into quite the Sunday movie + craft night. I watched Deadpool 2 while making the pompoms, and what can I say? Except there are only like a handful of ways to spend a Sunday or things to add to the Sunday I’ve spent that would make it better. Okay, so I’m gonna cut it here, and let’s see how to boho pompom throw pillow DIY.
Boho Pompom Throw Pillow DIY.
– Yarn in different colors
– Pompom maker *optional (if you don’t have, see how to make pompoms here)
– Needle + additional Yarn Thread for each pompom
– Throw Pillow Cover + Insert
1. Decide the colors and number of pompoms you want on your throw pillow. Make as much.
You don’t want your pompoms to be dense and to have a precise round shape like these for example. So, whether you’re using a pompom maker or cardboard or your fingers, just don’t use that much yarn. Also, make sure that you tie each pompom real tight. I wasn’t doing so and some of the pompoms kept falling apart and off the throw pillow by just touching them, so I had to spend extra time to fix them. If I’d paid just a little more attention to this part instead of Ryan Raynolds’ spandex butt haha…
2. Decide where you want each pompom to go on the throw pillow and start sewing. And by sewing I mean just put the thread through the pompom back and forth a few times, and then squeeze it through the throw pillow cover, again going back and forth to secure the pompom to the pillow cover. Now that the pompom is sewn, secure the thread on the inside of the pillow cover (photos below).
3. Put the pillow insert in the throw pillow cover and voila.
