Today, I’m going to make a craft that combines two of my favorite things…pom poms and drop cloth! My neutral pom pom pillow cover made with drop cloth is perfect for cozy winter decorating.

As I mentioned before, I’m no stranger to pom poms or drop cloth. I made a Neutral Pom Pom Holiday Wreath last year, and I’ve featured these drop cloth pillows twice before, too. First, there was the Neutral Pumpkin Pillow and then the Dollar Tree maple leaf pillow in my Fall Patio Decor post.
Neutral Pom Pom Pillow Cover Inspiration
We recently purchased new, oatmeal colored couches from Pottery Barn. I want a neutral look in the living room, so we also bought a jute rug and a reclaimed wood coffee table. To achieve a cozy, neutral vibe, I’m planning to make a bunch of drop cloth pillows. Adding pom poms is the perfect winter touch!
- Neutral pillow cover – I made a simple envelope style out of drop cloth, but a store bought cover works too. Mine is 18″ x 18″.
- Pillow form (same size as the pillow cover)
- 2 skeins of fluffy white or off white yarn
- Embroidery floss in a neutral color
- Embroidery needle
Make the pom poms by winding yarn around four of your fingers. Keep going until you have about 1 1/2″ on each side of your hand. You may choose to use a pom pom maker…I’m just old school lol!
Carefully remove the yarn from your fingers. Put the ball of yarn on top of a 12″ long piece of yarn. Cinch the yarn ball in the middle and tie a knot.
Cut all the loops on both sides. Trim the pom pom until it takes on a round shape. Continue making pom poms until you have your desired amount. I ended up using 12.
Place the pillow cover on a flat surface and arrange the pom poms in your desired pattern. After I’d taken this photo, I removed two pom poms so it was even on all sides. Initially, I was going to have pom poms going all of the way around, but I didn’t have enough yarn.
Thread the embroidery needle with embroidery floss, knot the end and pull it through a pom pom. Sew the pom poms to the side seams of the pillow form. Put the pillow form into the pillow cover, and you’re done!
I styled mine on a neutral chair with a furry throw in front of our White and Pink Christmas Tree.
It’s snowing today here in Connecticut, and the pom poms remind me of snowballs. I’m going to sit in this chair with some hot cocoa and enjoy the winter wonderland outside!
I love to mix white with shades of off white, along with different textures. It just amps up the cozy factor!
I hope this inspired you to make some pom poms! It’s a fun and relaxing craft that can be used in so many ways. Next on the hop is my friend Debbee from Debbee’s Buzz. She’s sharing a cute crochet zebra craft…perfect for gift giving!
