I did beget some plain throw pillow covers and I'm going to be pursuing up it in the DIY on them. To give them a little bit of a makeover and upgrade them, so if you have any throw pillows that you want to do this too, or you want to go out and get some plain, pillow covers, or a clean white pillow. That would be perfect for this and, if you do like this, let's get started, make the pom-pom pillow. I started by wrapping white yarn around three of my fingers, a bunch of times the more you wrap it. The thicker your pom-pom is going to be so once I was happy with how thick this was. I just used my scissors to cut that and then I cut another piece of yarn about four inches long. I slid that under the yarn that was on my finger and use the two end pieces to slowly slide.
This whole thing off of my hand. Now I'm applying one single knot and when I'm flipping the entire thing over and tying a double knot to make sure that everything is the drawer and in place and that it won't come undone once you've done this to have a loop of yarn on each end. So to take your scissors and slide it through the loop and just start to cut the yarn, you'll see it breaks free and then all you have to do is just form this into a little pom-pom shape. And then you can cut off around the edges to make sure that everything's, even and it's how big you want it to be. The next step is to take your pillow or your solo cover and just lay out your pom poms. However, you want them to be arranged now. You can show them at this point if you want it to be a bit more permanent and last longer, but I'm just going to the fabric we, because that is the easiest and I'm just going to put a little bit of glue on the back of each one. To push them down and make sure that you let this glue dry fully before you actually use the pillow, so I'm just doing that equally spaced in rows of four and then three and then four and so on. Once the glue is totally dried. You are ready to put it onto your pillow and it looks really cute.
This ketchup pillow is my favorite and so easy to make. So I printed off a cactus stencil just but I found online and I used some cake to tape it to the center of my pillow cover. And then I worked in sections and took some green yarn and some fabric glue again, and I just started to glue small sections at a time and put my yarn straight into the glue and make sure that it was nice and secure. And then I just continued on to the next section of the cactus. I did this all the way around the entire thing and then, when I got down to the bottom, I just wrapped it around the bottom portion and use my business to cut it off. And then I work in sections again and just sort of ripped the paper. So that I said, get it out without pulling up and yarn and make sure that your glue is fully dry again before actually using this. And then I just took this little pink yarn hastily made and but basically, I put some glue on that and used it as a little flower on top of my cactus and if it looks really really cute in the today kiss stretch pillow.
I took some painters tape and just put it all the way across my pillow cover - and I use the soap grid - that I have to make sure that the tape was even on both sides. And then I just took some black paint and started to paint above the piece of tape. Now it's going to not be perfect, because this is a pillow cover, so it's not like when you're painting on a harder surface, but I actually like that because it gives it a bit of a more abstract look. And I really like the way that turned out continue painting your line all the way across and then you can go ahead and put down your next piece of tape and I spaced these each about three inches apart. So I just used my little grid here to go down about three inches and then start my next row of paint. Once you reach the last stripe at the bottom, you can go ahead and remove all of your tapes and then you'll see that the bottom of the lines are definitely more rigid industry and I wanted them to be more listed top. So I just took my paintbrush and spread out the paint a bit to give it that look, that I really would wait for it to dry completely and then you're ready to put it on your pillow.
