DIY Pom-Pom Heart Shirt

Make a pom-pom heart shirt for Valentine's Day - or any day!

Here's a shirt that is bound to make you happier if you wear it! It will put a smile on a lot of others' faces too. ;) This DIY pom-pom sweatshirt is fun way to jazz up an old shirt or sweatshirt for Valentine's Day in under 30 minutes with no sewing required.

I sported my pom-pom sweatshirt at my last day at the Alt Summit blogging conference in Palm Springs. The colorful Saguaro Hotel made for the perfect photo shoot backdrop. A shoutout to my friend Jeran of Oleander and Palm blog for snapping these pics!

How to Make a Pom-Pom Heart Shirt


1. Lay your shirt flat and then center your heart template in the middle of the shirt. Use a ruler or measuring tape to help make sure it is centered. Hold the template in place (you can add a little masking tape on the back) and trace around the template with a pencil.

2. Slide a protective piece of cardboard or plastic between the front and back of the shirt to prevent the fabric glue from seeping through to the other side. Add a generous bead of fabric glue around the heart outline, working on a small section at a time.

3. Press the pom-poms into the glue and work your way around the heart. Let dry completely overnight! If you want, you can also use a needle and thread to sew the pom-poms to the shirt for added hold.

Note: I have not yet attempted to wash this in the washing machine! While the fabric glue will hold the pom-poms, they are delicate and may deteriorate and lose their fluffiness in the washing machine. I will update this once I find out! In the meantime, I say hand wash or dry clean is best.
