Do it yourself / /
There is nothing more relaxing than laying in comfortable, cozy, soft pillows. Even better if you have a pet, a good book, and a cup of coffee--an ideal afternoon break! These cheerful pillows in cheerful colors would be the perfect pieces to give some life in your living of bed room. Take some time after work or during the weekend and make them on your own. We guarantee that the first one won’t be the last one you’ve made!
To create this pillow you’ll need:
- Yarns in different colors
- Two toilette paper rolls for making the pom pom balls
- A pillow case
Depending on the size of the pillow case you should determine the number of balls you'll need to make. For a standard size 60 × 60 cm you will need about 50 pom pom balls.
Put the beginning of the yarn in between the two toilet paper rolls and clamp them down in the middle with your fingers.
Start wrapping the yarn around the rolls for about 120-150 times. The more yarn you wrap, the fuller the pom pom ball will be.
When you finish wrapping take another piece of yarn, about 12 inches long and slide its both ends down in between the toilet paper rolls and tie a knot to secure it. Carefully holding the yarns, slide them off the toilet paper rolls.
Take the scissors and cut the yarn loops (few at the time).
Using scissors again trim the pom pom ball to so it looks nice and even.
For the finishing step place them straight next to each other on the pillow case and fix them with glue.
