Who is ready for another DIY blog?! Today, we are going to be talking Pom Poms! Pom Pom accessories are one of my favorite things at the moment. Not only are they trendy, they are an easy way to make a plain outfit super loud and quirky. There are a couple different ways to do this trend and to make it your very own style. I am going to show you two ways to make your very own pom pom earrings in less than 5 minutes each!
What you’ll need:
- Pom poms (pre-made)
- Yarn (to make your own poms)
- Fork (to make your own poms)
- Hoop Earrings
- Post Earrings
- 2” length of small chain
- Embroidery Floss
Alrighty, now that we have everything we need it is time to get crafty. So since this DIY is so gosh darn simple we are going to be making two different kinds of pom pom earrings. One that is for beginner DIYers and then a slightly more difficult option.
Easy-peasy option: I bought some pre-made ones from a local Dollar Tree that came in a variety of colors so this is a good option if you don’t really want to make your own.
Slightly more effort option: It is pretty easy to make your own pompoms with some yarn if you’re up for the challenge. I found a pretty simple way to make medium sized pom poms with just a fork. You just wrap the yarn around the fork about 20 times; next, tie a piece in the center as tight as you can. Finally, cut the two sides and you are done. SIMPLE AS THAT FOLKS!
After you figured out your pom pom situation, take your pom pom, your hoop earring, and add a variety of pom poms. It’s up to you if you want to cover the whole thing in pom poms or just add a couple. Just find the center of your pom and thread it through with the back of the earring. That is all it takes for the hoop-pom pom earring style! What I find fun about this DIY option is that you can make multiple colored poms and switch them out to match your outfits! Above you can see the easy and more difficult pom-pom options. For the pre-made pom poms, I just put a bunch on my earring hoop. For the homemade pom I went with just one simple pom on the hoop. Both are super cute way to add some color to your regular plain hoop earrings!
For another slightly more difficult option, grab a small 2 inch chain to put on the back of your earring post for a dangly-drop style earring. Thread your embroidery floss to your needle, find the center of your homemade pom and tie it up to the bottom chain. Then take the top of the chain, put it through whatever style of post earrings you want to wear that day and your ready to go! It really is that easy to make your own DIY Pom Pom earrings.
