Perfectly Pom Pom
Pom poms, those irresistibly squeezable, poofy, floofy little balls of squish that no one can resist! Perfect for adding that finishing touch to any crochet, knitting or woven project, they can also transform normal everyday items into luxe decor or high fashion.
There are many ways to make a pom pom and most of DIY ideas will work with any pom pom style, we have used our NanaCindy faux fur pom poms for most of these projects. Faux fur pom poms are one of our most popular products, and we just love to see all the amazing colour combos you amazing creators and crafters put together and send in to us. We just love our oversize fluffy pom poms so much we tried them on everything we owned! Here are the results:
Firstly we have the classic present idea for that hard to buy for person in your life- the Nanacindy learn to knit pom pom hat kit. No matter how basic or beginner your knitting skills are, the hat is gonna look SO great once you pop that pom pom on top, you will be sure get compliments on your style. And don’t worry- our pom poms are all cruelty free faux fur
If you don’t want to knit a whole hat, don’t worry! Literally any Hat looks good with a pom pom on it; Knitted hats, Machine knit beanies, Merino beanies, Caps, Bucket hats, Baby bonnets. We love the look of two like little animal ears, especially in a tonal colour, or do a row over the top like a mohawk.
OR add them to the ends of hat or hoodie cords and scarves for a cute ‘snow bunny’ look. Never underestimate the effect some contrast poms can have on a piece.
Accessories look great with poms poms! Transform a plain headband or glue to clips for maximum sartorial control, clips are perfect for people that don’t like wearing headbands too
Pom poms make great earrings! I added them to a piece of chain on a hook for maximum wiggly effect. All of these ideas would be even cuter with a couple of googly eyes, I love them on black pom poms especially- they look like little soot sprites. Use strong craft glue or a glue gun if you can’t stitch them on. Keyrings look amazing with a pom pom attached and if you know someone who always loses their keys- well we have some really bright coloured options just perfect for this. If you like googly eyes, well what about also adding some cords for little arms and legs? So cute!
Looking for some quick DIY christmas gift ideas? Homewares are always a lovely gift to receive and it’s so easy to find a blanket or cushion and with just a few stitches, elevate that piece to an insta worthy luxury item with gorgeous fluffy pom pom accents. Perfect for a selfie backdrop and I could see a few furry friends getting a sweet photoshoot on one of these pom pom minky blankets too!
Got an event coming up? Now I just love party decorations but isn’t it just so tempting to go out and buy fresh ones from the store for every party? How about making more permanent decor? That you can put away- like at christmas! Add pom poms to a string for a giant pom pom garland always destined to delight.
