Pom poms make me happy.  Colorful hearts make me happy.  So, I combined the two into this fun Pom Pom Heart Pillow that’s a sweet addition to any decor.  You know you need a heart pillow somewhere in your home, don’t you?!

This is a quick project.  I made it while watching Downton Abbey one evening so there’s no major concentration required…lol.  The pom poms were made with my super cool and crafty pom pom maker that I’ll share with you in another post.

Pom Pom Heart Pillow {DIY}


Here’s a look at how I did it…


pom poms

Gather up a bunch of trimmed pom poms…I used 22 pom poms for my heart.  To give you a little perspective on the size I will tell you that this is a simple 17 inch pillow.  The completed heart is 9” x 9” full of 2 inch pom poms.

Pom Pom Heart Pillow Tutorial 2

  • I cut an 8 inch heart out of wool felt…you know how I feel about wool felt. {It’s the BEST!}
  • I simple started attaching each pom pom with the embroidery thread to the edge of the heart.  I started at the top working my way around.
  • I only used two large stitches for each pom pom so it was a quick process.  You might need to adjust the number of stitches depending on how much your pillow will be handled.

Pom Pom Love

  • I completed the edge and then filled in the center with pom poms.  Don’t you love it?!
  • There are many ways it can be attached to the pillow, but I added just a few stitches along the edge so I can remove it later without damaging the pillow.  You could just glue it with fabric glue.  Whatever makes you happy.

I made the pom poms with this Pom Pom Maker from Amazon {below}…just follow the easy directions and you can make a ton in minutes!  It’s the easiest way I’ve found to make them.  {Yes, you can make them using cardboard…but I liked this little tool so much better!!}
