West Elm Knock Off Floor Pouf

West Elm Knock Off

Seriously you guys, I’ve been coveting these floor poufs since the first time I saw them. I don’t know about you but I don’t have an extra 250.00 laying around for a glorified floor pillow. My first thought when I saw the price was “Wow that’s a utility bill payment.” LOL. I’m so cheap. So On I went poufless and sad. That is until I was perusing pinterest for insperation and I found this fantastic tutorial over @ Retropolitan She took a 3 dollar IKEA Rug and made one! Right up my alley. Cheap, gorgeous, and easy. Not to mention the ENDLESS possibilities with fabric choices.

I pretty much followed her tutorial to the T. The only difference is I didn’t add a zipper to mine. The only reason I didn’t do so is I just didn’t have one at the time. So instead of adding a zipper I just hand sewed the pouf shut after I stuffed it. Just a side note Stuff the pouf much more than you think you should. It makes it look so much better when it’s tighter.

Supplies You’ll Need:

*** This is Per Pouf****

  • 3 Yds of fabric (This is the fabric I used it was on sale for 5.00 dollars a yard. SCORE!!)
  • 1 and a half bags of bean bag filling. I could Only find it at K-Mart (each bag is 11.99)beanbag
  •  Sewing Machine
  • Needle and Coordinating Thread
  • Zipper if you choose to add one

After you gather your supplies just follow Erika’s Tutorial and you’re done.

This project took no time at all, and I’m so happy with the end product!



Thanks For Stopping By.

  • This is beautiful, I prefer the DIY one over the bought one. That is crazy for the price. I have some smaller poufs but I think a bigger one would be more functional. I love this idea!

    • Thank You! Not to mention the bigger ones are more practical extra seating for adults. Have you ever seen a grown person try to use on of the smaller ones as a seat? Hilarious! But not to flattering, I’d actually like my guests to return.lol

  • This is great! Pinning! I’d love for you to link up to the Be. YOU. Tiful Link Party :) http://wp.me/p2LtB9-sc

  • This is awesome and I MUST make one!! I am with the other person that commented, I think the one you made is even prettier than the West Elm Piece!! Nice Job!!


  • I love this! AND I love the fabric you used! Thank you for sharing, I found it through the Cook It, Craft It, Share It link party.

  • Turned out great! I need one of these!

  • Utility payment… hahahaha I think the exact SAME thing when I see the prices for poufs. (and other things) I also have pouf obsession what is with these little squares that go on the floor that have me drooling uncontrollably? It’s not like I lounge around on the floor all day, (i wish i did though) if I did I would never get up again. Not with out a lot of panting and a hoist anyway! :)

  • Gosh, I’ve wanted one of these but haven’t gotten around to making one! Thanks for sharing!
