How to Make a Faux Fur Pom-Pom with Studio Knit | DIY Craft

Today, let’s make our own Faux Fur Pom-Poms! Learn how to shop, make, style, and attach these little cuties now.

I was able to make 3 faux fur pom-poms — sizes small, medium, and large — for the total price of only $2.50. Actually, they worked out to cost less after using my coupon at Joann’s Fabrics!

They look great attached to my popular knitted Gilmore Girls Hat and my recent Bubble Beanie Hat. You can get really creative by making these pom-poms as cute accessories and even jewelry.

FAUX FUR PURCHASING TIPS

Let’s first take a little trip to the fabric store!

Look for the longest faux fur that you can find and ask them to cut the smallest measure of yardage allowed if you plan to only make a few for yourself and friends.

To save on cost even further, you might wish to check the racks to see if they have little faux fur samples like they do right here in this craft section, which can be less costly than purchasing from the fabric aisles.

I purchased these faux fur samples by “Fab Lab” for my pom-poms at Joann Fabric.

YOUR 5 STEPS TO MAKING FAUX FUR POM-POMS

STEP 1: FIND ROUND OBJECTS TO TRACE

Once you’re back home, gather up some round dishes in the size that you’d like.

For small pom-poms, I’m using four inches in diameter; medium pom-poms five inches;  and the largest at six inches.

STEP 2: TRACE A CIRCLE ONTO THE BACK OF YOUR FAUX FUR FABRIC

Begin by marking a circle of the size that you’d like to make your pom-pom.

Carefully cut it out, making sure you are cutting the fabric and not directly over the fur so that you have a little bit of a long fur overlap.

Once you have your little round cut out you’ll see that the fur, since it’s all going in one direction, is sort of overlapping the circle on one end.

STEP 3: START SEWING

Thread your needle and have a double thread to kind of keep it a little bit more strong.

Secure the beginning of your sewing by doing just a little cross stitch so that it stays in place at the beginning, since we will be cinching up.

Then it’s a simple running stitch all the way around the perimeter of your circle. Mine is approximately half an inch.

Once I’ve sewn about half the way around, I like to begin cinching it up. It sort of just makes it a little bit easier. At the end place your fingers in the middle of your pom-pom and cinch it up really tightly. Take your time.

STEP 4: STUFFING TIME

Once you have it pretty well cinched up, go ahead and add your stuffing.

Continue cinching and simply sew it completely shut. Knot your thread.

STEP 5: SHAPE AND STYLE YOUR POM-POM

To make your faux fur pom-pom look its best, I like to comb it into shape.

I am actually borrowing my dog’s comb for this!

It really helps make your pom-pom super pretty and shape it exactly the way you like it.

HOW TO CREATE A DETACHABLE POM-POM ONTO A HAT

Here’s a little trick to make a detachable pom-pom!

Start by sewing a button on the inside of the top of your hat and then simply thread your yarn through.

I like to just wrap my yarn around the button and tie it off. This way, it’s really simple to detach your pom-pom when you would like to change things up or wash your hat.
