Patriotic Pillow DIY


Hey everyone!  It’s Tuesday and with that being said I find Tuesdays to be one of my favorite days.  It is kind of boring and quiet which is perfect for a little DIY.  This patriotic pillow is just the thing for our upcoming holiday, a holiday I noticed I don’t have much decor for.  I am thrilled to be able to supply my July 4th bin with more decor, so grab the kiddos and have them help as this pillow is ever so easy and fun!

Items needed:

  • Poms in red white and blue
  • Fabric glue
  • White Pillow

As simple as that supply list is, so is the actual construction of this pillow.  It took me about 10 minutes to apply the poms and a few hours to let the glue dry.  The idea is to glue the poms with your fabric glue in the design of an American flag.  I glued about eleven blue poms in the top left corner staggering them with four poms on the first row, then three on the next row, and then again four poms on the third row.  A total of three rows of blue poms spaced about a finger space apart.  Of coarse, your design will depend on the size of your pillow,  you may need to add more poms or space them further apart to fill the front of your pillow.  Next, I added the red and white poms to imitate the red and white stripes of the flag.  I continued the rows that I started with the blue poms and worked my way down the pillow altering the red and white poms.  I  spaced the red and white poms about two finger spaces apart.  I staggered the red and white poms with each row as well to create a less unified look.  Once finished follow the directions on your fabric glue for dry times, I let mine dry for about three hours before I placed mine on my porch.

There ya have it, folks!  It’s just that easy and added so much more to my porch in celebration of our upcoming holiday.  As I said before, my decor bin for July 4th is slim pickins so this was a great budget-friendly addition.  If you have any more budget-friendly, DIY , simple decor ideas for this great American holiday, please share as I always have room for more decor!


Happy DIY Tuesday!  Let’s get creative!
