Continuing our DIY holiday gift projects this week is a super easy pom pom heart pillow that was inspired by an instagram pic from the lovely Anna Spiro of Absolutely Beautiful Things.

Love the look as much as I did? Here are the DIY steps achieve the look.

Most of the supplies can be found at your local craft store and your office supplies. You can use any striped pillow you like, but I found one at Ikea for only $6, which was a perfect ticking fabric.

Step 1: Cut your paper in half and draw your heart. Now you can grab any heart image from online and simply print it out to use it for a stencil, but I thought the pillow was sweeter if you drew it yourself.

Step 2: Cut your heart out and use the stencil to trace your pillow onto the pillow with a sharpie. Placement is up to you, but I found the stripes helpful in centering the heart by going in 7 stripes from each edge.

Step 3: Pick a color combo for the pom poms and start gluing into place with Fabri-Tac.

Step 4: Once your pom poms are all glued let them fully dry/set (approximately 1 hr). Since I have a little man around the house that loves to play decorator and play with all of my pillows I decided to protect my pom poms a bit more and stitch them into place. I thought it would be hard to get needle/thread through a pom pom, but it was super easy to do.

STEP 5: Place in it’s new home! Don’t you love all of the pattern play?

Close up:

So, what do you think? Are you ready to tackle this project. It came in under $10 for me, because all I needed to pick up was a pillow cover ($6) and a bag of pom pom’s ($2). Everything else was already in my house.
