ONCE YOU LEARN HOW TO MAKE DIY POM POMS, YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN POM POM HAIR CLIPS, RINGS AND MORE! HERE ARE EASY DIY POM POM ACCESSORIES YOU CAN MAKE WITH YOUR HANDMADE POMPOMS!
All it takes is yarn, scissors and your hand (or a fork) to make pom poms that are perfect for all the craft projects you can dream up.
You can make small, medium, and large pom poms using just your hand, and if you want extra small ones, you can use the pom pom fork method.
Today, we are going to use extra small pom poms made with a fork and turn them into accessories: pom pom hair clips and barrettes, pom pom hair ties and pom pom rings!
Here’s how we do it!
DIY Pom Pom Accessories | How to Make Pom Pom Hair Clips & Rings
Step 1. Gather Supplies.
- Pom Poms (extra small pom poms made with a fork work best for accessories and jewelry.)
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Hair Clips, Barrettes, Hair Ties, Ring Blanks
(Pom poms in the making, using the fork method.)
Step 2. TO MAKE POM POM RINGS: Hot glue pom poms onto ring blanks.
To make a pom pom ring, you need pom poms (without tie strings) and ring blanks.
Put some hot glue onto the top of a ring blank; add the pom pom!
Pull gently on the pom pom to see how secure it is. Add more glue if necessary; you want it to be secure.
That’s all there is to it!
Step 3. TO MAKE POM POM BARRETTES: Hot glue (and tie, if desired) pom poms onto barrette.
To make a pom pom barrette, you need some pom poms and a blank barrette.
Hot glue pom poms onto the top of the barrette.
As an optional step, you can tie the ties strings around the barrette for additional stability.
You don’t have to use the tie strings though; you could easily cut them off and just hot glue the pom poms to the barrette like we did with the rings.
Pull on the pom poms to make sure they’re secure, and add more glue if needed.
There’s your DIY pom pom barrette!
Step 4. TO MAKE POM POM HAIR TIES: Tie pom pom onto elastic hair tie.
To make a pom pom hair tie, you need elastic hair ties and pom poms WITH TIE STRINGS!
Tie the pom pom’s tie strings tightly around the elastic hair tie.
Knot to secure.
Trim off the tie strings once it’s secure.
And you’re done!
This is the easiest and fastest of all of them; you’re going to want to make a dozen!
Step 5. TO MAKE POM POM HAIR CLIPS: Hot glue pom pom onto hair clips.
To make pom pom hair clips, you need pom poms and blank hair clips.
Cut the tie strings off your pom poms if you haven’t already.
Put hot glue onto the top of the hair clips, and add pom pom!
Pull on the pom poms to see how secure they are.
Add more hot glue if needed.
Step 6. Inspect and enjoy the DIY pom pom accessories!
Check all of your pom pom accessories, and see if any of them need a trim.
Make sure all of the pom poms are securely attached to the ring blanks and hair clips; you don’t want them falling off because of a lack of glue!
That’s all there is to it!
All you need are pom poms, blank accessories, and some hot glue!
