How To: Add pompoms to your Photo Cushions

You may have seen that we launched our lovely new range of photo cushions last month. We’ve had help from interior design blogger, Love Chic Living, on the best way to style our sofa using the cushions, so we decided to come up with a DIY idea of our own – adding pom poms!

The idea is so simple, and you can even get your kids involved making the pom poms. All you’ll need for this project is…

Photo Cushions – as many as you like

Wool – in any colour

A needle & thread

Scissors

Cardboard

Step 1:

Start by cutting circles out of the cardboard – the larger the circle, the larger the pom pom. Simply wrap the wool around the cardboard in a circular motion, when you can’t fit anymore wool through the centre of the cardboard, tie a knot and then cut around the outside edge of the pom pom.

Top tip: Wrap a piece of wool around the middle of the pom pom to keep it secure. You can fluff it up using a (clean!) fork.

Step 2:

Repeat step 1 four times until you have 4 pom poms. Now, it’s time to start sewing!

Sew each pom pom into the corner of the cushion – ta da, you’re done!
