I made this pillow more than 2 years ago, and still love it! I actually ended up giving it away as a gift to a family member, and have wished for it to be back in my Christmas decor stash ever since. It is absolutely time that I make one again! Who doesn’t love a pom pom Christmas pillow after all? The Grinch maybe…
