Easy to sew tassel pillow home decor

The playful tassel design for this pillow will look good in any room. We think teens and those looking to decorate a dorm room will especially love this decor pillow.

Tassel Pillow Pattern

Coordinate the yarn tassels with any room theme or keep the pillow completely neutral. We love the idea of a solid pillow with the same color tassels. Let those tassels really shine by adding texture and intrest.

DIY Tassel Pillow Tutorial

The method used for attaching the tassels ensures they remain secure. Pick your own pattern and position for placement. Every tassel pillow will be unique.


  • Start with your pillow form. The one used here is a 12″ X 24″ pillow.
  • Fabric for pillow front and back*. This will need to be the size of your pillow form, plus 1″- so in this case, two 13″ X 25″ pieces.
  • Zipper- no shorter than 5″ less than the size of the pillow form
  • Chunky Thread or yarn in the tassel colors you would like.
  • Batting or fusible fleece for the pillow front
  • Erasable marking pen for marking tassel locations
  • Sewing machine
