How to Make a Faux Fur Pom-Pom for Knit & Crochet Hats

I’ve been crocheting and knitting so many hats it was hard to find pom-poms to top them all. I figured there HAD to be an easy and cheap way to make them myself. (Especially since each pre-made pom I was buying was close to $4!)

After reading a few blogs and trying different methods (circle vs. square), I found the best way to make faux fur pom-poms. 3 yards of faux fur later and it’s pom EVERYTHING.

Watch thisΒ one minute video to learn how to make a faux-fur pom yourself!

Materials:Β 

  • 6.5 inches faux fur (I purchased mine from JoAnn Fabric)
  • Polyfill (small handful)
  • Yarn (15 inches)
  • Big needle
  • Scissors

How to Make a Faux Fur Pom-Pom:

  1. Cut 6.5 inch circle from faux fur. (Tip: Cutting is easiest fur-side down. Pull ends gently to remove extra “fluff”.)
  2. Thread 15 inches yarn onto large needle.
  3. Sew big, 1 inch stitches around circle.
  4. Pull ends to form dome.
  5. Fill with polyfill. Pull ends of yarn as tight as you can.
  6. Close circle by sewing “X” across opening.
  7. Tie a tight knot.
