Hello Remodelaholics! I’m Tasha and I blog over at Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body about thrifty DIY projects and home renovations. You may remember my first contributor post about how to transform an outdated, cultured marble vanity with concrete or my popular post about how we built a wood screen to hide the ugly utility boxes on the side of our house. I am very much a Remodelaholic, so I know I am in good company here 🙂 But sometimes even Remodelaholics need quick and easy projects, and that is what I have for you today.
Our 5-year-old twin girls share a bedroom. Since they started kindergarten (SOB!!!) I am updating their bedroom just a bit to phase out the princess decor that they have outgrown (SOB again!). Designing shared kids spaces can be challenging. These stellar shared kids spaces are amazing and underscore that every touch in the room matters, even the bed skirts. But high-end/designer bed skirts are expensive, am I right? The only bed skirts that seem reasonably priced are plain, plain, plain. So I knew to get the high-end, embellished look I wanted I was going to have to DIY it. That said, my sewing skills aren’t stellar so I opted for this semi-homemade pom pom bed skirt and it was so easy. Trust me, you do not need any sewing skills for this project. In fact, if you don’t have a sewing machine, you could use this no-sew method to achieve the same look without sewing at all!

- Bed skirt (this is the bed skirt that I purchased from Target–I got it on sale for $19.99. There are similar bed skirts available here on Amazon as well.)
- 3/4 inch pom pom fringe trim (I used about 10 yards per bed skirt–this is the exact trim I used)
- Sewing machine
- Zipper foot for sewing machine
PS: If you love the bedding, it’s a duvet from Pottery Barn Teen here. 🙂
1) Iron your bed skirt.Turn your bed skirt inside out. Then pin your pom pom trim along the bottom of your bed skirt (be sure to pin it on the back side of the bed skirt).
2) Turn your bed skirt inside out. Then pin your pom pom trim along the bottom of your bed skirt (be sure to pin it on the back side of the bed skirt).
3) Sew it into place. I don’t have a zipper foot for my sewing machine, but in retrospect, it would have made things a lot easier. I had to keep moving my pom poms out of the way of the sewing needle. I will definitely invest in one the next time I sew pom pom trim onto something again.
4) Place your pom pom bed skirt onto your bed and admire all the cuteness! Then pat yourself on the back for creating a high-end looking bed skirt for around $30. Win!
Take a look at the finished pom pom bed skirt. It’s SUCH a great addition to my girls’ room. And I have to confess, I kind of want to start adding pom poms to everything all over my house now. It just looks so happy!
If you love this project, be sure to pin it for later!
