Candy Swirl Pillow Remix

Candy Swirl Pillow Remix

I was browsing through Instagram, and I came across a fun living-room set up that was decorated in shades of grey and white. There were a lot of yarn accents including a collection of throw pillows throughout the room. Several were fun knit or crochet looking patterns that really caught my eye. It really started to give me some inspiration.

Some of you may recall, last Halloween, Nate and I wore cosplay costumes inspired by Willy Wonka. Part of the set up we had included the Candy Swirl Pillows. Today, after seeing all the fun ways to dress up a room with throw pillows, I decided to embellish my already existing pillows with some poms to give them a little fun boho flair! This is the Candy Swirl Pillow Remix! Simply put, I took an old pillow, with a little bit of tweaking, I made it new again! How fun it is to add a small detail and change the look of this project!

Here is a step by step photo tutorial of how I made my poms.

I received this cute pom maker from, so I am using that today. You can click the first photo below to shop for these fabulous pom makers!

First I wrapped the yarn around each of the wooden pieces (there are instructions in the pom making kit to walk you through)

Then I cut the yarn.


Once they are both wrapped and cut, I put the outer pieces on the spokes of the inner wooden pieces.

Then I squeezed with one hand, and cut the strands down the middle with my other hand.

That’s what it looks like when all the pieces are cut! I had to be sure not to let go of it at this point!


Then I took a long strand of yarn and tied a few knots around the center of these little strands, as you can see in the photo below.



Then I popped off all the pieces and a pom was made!!



I trimmed any longer strands to make it a perfect pom!




Here is the pillow I made and added poms to the outer edge!
