A Faux Fur DIY Pom Pom Kit, which includes:

  • Faux Fur Rounds
  • Filler Balls
  • Thread

Let's Get Started!

Step 1:

Thread the needle and tie the ends together leaving a tail for tying off later. 

A hand is pushing a white thread through a needle. Beneath the hand is a faux fur round.

Step 2:

Insert needle into fur backing along the edge of the work, pull needle through the two threads at the knotted end and tighten to fasten in place.

Step 3:

Weave needle in and out of backing along the edge all the way around until you reach the beginning.

Step 4:

Cinch loosely and add the ball inside.

The pom-pom fur backing is resting on a white background. The pom-pom is not fully sewn shut, showing off the white ball that acts as the stuffing for the pom-pom

Step 5:

Cinch tightly and tie off using the tail from the beginning.

Step 6:

Use the remaining thread to sew the snap into place, being sure to catch the backing so it stays in place.

Step 7:

Use the remaining tail to tie off again and trim the thread.

Sew the other end of the snap to the fabric you’re fastening the pom too.

You’ve now made yourself a couple of cute faux fur pom poms.
