DIY No-Sew Pom Pom Pillow + Giveaway

Time: 45 minutes
Materials: pillow, fabric glue, pom pom trim, scissors

DIY No-Sew Pom Pom Pillow (click through for full tutorial!)As much as I love the clean feeling of white walls and white bedding, I also crave color constantly. Since we don’t have any art hung in the bedroom yet, I decided to print one of my Instagram photos on a pillow using Snapfish Home Decor. To add an extra pop of color and playfulness to the pillow, I added some pom pom trim, all without a sewing machine.

Here’s how:

DIY No-Sew Pom Pom Pillow (click through for full tutorial!)You can use any fabric glue for this project, but I suggest using one that dries absolutely clear since the back of the printed pillow is black. It was really easy to make the pillow using Snapfish. You really just upload your photos and customize from there. You can do collages or add text. I kept it simple and just had one image printed. Their site is even tablet and smartphone friendly, so you can upload your Instagram shots and create your own decor wherever you are. Easy peasy for crafting on the go!

DIY No-Sew Pom Pom Pillow (click through for full tutorial!)Since there isn’t any sewing involved when adding the pom pom trim, you’ll want to get it as close to the crease as possible. Apply your glue and press down the trim. Let each section (side) dry before moving on to the next.

I decided to layer another color behind. If you do more than one color, just be sure the layer before is completely dry beforehand so that it doesn’t move while you’re working.

Let glue dry, trim the excess, and you’re done!

  • Andrea

    Love this clever DIY and new way to incorporate personal photos into home decor!

  • Catherine

    I would be torn between using a medallion panel to shake things up on the gallery wall and getting a custom pillow for my son’s room. Love the pom poms!

  • Oooh, this is so pretty! I just love the graphic palm leaf photo you used! And your headboard! How is the quality of the pillow fabric and printing? If I win the giveaway I’d love to order some prints of my wedding photos to add to my living room gallery (that I haven’t made yet, haha)!

  • This is brilliant because I’ve had nightmare experiences sewing pompom trim in the past!

    Printed fabric could make the cutest pompom curtains, too!!

  • Breanna

    You’re speaking my language with no sew ;) Love this!

  • Shannon Crabill

    My sister moved in a few weeks ago and I’m wondering if she could use a Pom Pom pillow in her life :)

  • Wow how cool! I think I would definitely turn one of my pictures into a throw pillow (or maybe turn family pictures into pillow cases for my kids – they would get a kick out of that!)

  • LOOOOVING the colors and I am kind of obsessing over this whole palm fronds/tropical plant vibe that is getting so popular!! So basically the pillow is perfect ;)

    I could ALWAYS use more pillows!!
