DIY Valentine Heart Pom Pom Pillows

I know I have an addiction to pillows — I can’t help it!!
 
I love making pillow covers. It’s a really inexpensive way to update a space and decorate for different seasons or holidays.

So when I was out and about on Friday, looking for cute fabric for projects, I saw a really cute pillow at Material Girls in South Jordan. A burlap pillow with felt hearts and pom poms. Cute!!
 
I thought about the pillow all day and on Saturday I decided that I really wanted to make one. Of course I had to make a few changes and make it my own. I used white pom poms and a row of white hearts down the center. And then I also made a smaller pillow with one big heart with three layers of felt.
 
I made the pillows as pillow covers so I could insert pillow forms I already had. And that way I can just take them off and store them in my Valentine’s Day bin and get them out again next year. I estimated the cost on these pillows and I made them for just a few dollars each. The felt I bought at the craft store in squares – they are .25 cents each. The burlap was $3 per yard and I used less than a yard for both pillows. The most expensive part was the pom poms. I bought the large pom poms by the yard at Hobby Lobby. And one nice thing about Hobby Lobby is that you can use your smart phone to look up their online coupon. So I was able to get 40% off the total length of the pom poms. Yay!
