Pom Pom Basket – How To Make Your Own Fluffy Pom Pom Bin

Fluffy DIY Pom Pom Bin — Love neutrals? This Fluffy DIY Pom Pom Bin provides a nice bit of texture while hiding those less than neutral unsightly odds and ends!

Love neutrals? This Fluffy DIY Pom Pom Bin adds a nice bit of texture while hiding all your little things that are … less than neutral.

A foolproof way to ensure a color neutral home still feels visually interesting is through texture—lots of texture.

So I’m always on the lookout for ways to introduce tactile elements at my house with both decorative and functional pieces.

For me, Erin of Francoise et Moi this pom pom storage bin project was born out of a need for something to store kids toys in my living room.

It’s a generous 16” diameter by 15” high fabric container that corrals all matters of chaos, with fluffy poms that bring a healthy dose of texture and whimsy to any space.

Don’t have kids? Laundry or outdoor gear are equally at home in here.

Ours is holding our extra throw pillows like the DIY Snowball Pillow. (And if you like the chair nearby, it’s our DIY Woven Stool!)

Materials Needed To Make A Fluffy DIY Pom Pom Bin

Fabric bin

Raw wool roving

Coordinating yarn

Wallet sized (3”x 2”) sturdy plastic card


Tapestry needle

Wrap wool roving around card 2.5 times

How To Make A Fluffy DIY Pom Pom Bin

Slide wool roving off card and cinch in the middle with fingers. Tie yarn around the center of folded wool and double knot.

Cut all 4 loops with scissors and fluff pom.

Repeat with additional poms. I used 18 poms total for this bin.

Thread tapestry needle with both yarn tails of a pom.

Insert needle through both fabric layers of the side of the bin pulling the yarn through to the inside. Double knot yarn and trim yarn tails.

Repeat with remaining poms in an all over pattern. Tame poms a bit by trimming wild tufts with a scissors.


Actually, the BEST part about this project is that it’s truly totally customizable!

If you’re not a neutral lover, you can absolutely use this technique to add a pop of fluffy color to this DIY! Enjoy!
