diy wool ball glittered letter pillows

pom poms.
pillows.
pretty.

these are the ingredients for 
a quick and easy diy craft to get this:
all it takes is this:
pillows form target's dollar spot, 
wool felt balls from jo ann's or michael's,
and this glittered letter craft kit.
i found the kit at home goods,
aka one of my ultimate fave stores,
for only $4.99.
i was just standing in line to pay for miscellaneous other things that i did not need, when i saw this in the aisle staring at me.

this is what was inside:
i'm keeping the black pillow case for something else later, 
 probably a halloween pillow or something 
and used my pink and orange target pillows instead.

on the back of the kit are the 
easy to follow directions.
i kinda didn't listen to the IMPORTANT part of the directions cuz i got too impatient...
which is why the "s" my sparkle 
didn't sparkle as well as i wanted. 
oh well, live and learn.

they still came out good enough i think.
and especially when i added the balls.
i originally thought to sew them all individually 
but due to laziness, i ended up 
hot gluing them instead,
hoping it would work.

and lo and behold it did!

i put the wool balls in a scatter fashion 
for the sparkle pillow and placed them 
as sun rays for the shine pillow.


so there you have it.
they remind me of candy.
which makes me think, 
i haven't made candy in awhile...hmmm?

  1. These are so cute!! I've found a bunch of those projects (like the one you got at Home Goods) at my JoAnn's, in the clearance isle!!! They keep ours near the back of the store. I'm hoping no one finds it. I've scored several of those kits for my great's to use! We made one for the other grandma for Mom's day. So fun! Gonna look for one like yours!! And yes, BBFF, it's time for CANDY!! Dona
