During the holiday season, I became obsessed with this GORGEOUS pin on Pinterest from On Sutton Place
Man. Looking at this picture again more closely gives me some serious pom-pom envy. I mean... Look at those poms poms! They're beyond perfect! how did a human make those??
But I digress. Amazing idea, right? However, being that I'm often a few steps behind on keeping up with holidays I just didn't get around to attempting this great DIY this year. I couldn't get this pillow out of my mind though, so I tried to think of other ways I could use this idea. I so love a good monogram and I also love that monograms look great all year round, so I decided to do a big "J" for our last name using pom poms. I also decided to try it out with a black and white pillowcase for a lil dramatic oomph!
Here is how I made it:
I started with the pom poms Here is the tutorial for how to make the pom poms:
The poms poms were definitely the most time-consuming part. I made 22 pom poms for my J, which is WAY more than I thought I would need. Just a heads up, don't feel bad if you try making a few of the pom poms and you're like WHAT the what? My pom poms totally don't look anything like this! Keep at it and just trim away if they're uneven. I did a lot of trimming :/.
Then all you need to do is turn on your hot glue gun and glue those babies on! I took the pillow cover off to figure out where to put the J and for the gluing. And that's it!
