DIY: Pom Pom Necklace

Last weekend, Alicia came over and we had a lovely time catching up over iced coffee + making pom poms.  (You can see what she did with hers here.)  Let me just tell you… a pom pom maker is a wonderful thing.  Lauren introduced me to it a while back but I had yet to actually do anything with mine.  I could sit for hours making pom poms.  It’s relaxing and a bit cathartic…  a great way to spend an afternoon with a friend.


You’ll need: Three different sized pom-pom makers.  (I used Clover’s small set and the smaller size of the large set.) // Yarn (I used this one, it’s so soft!)  // Chunky gold chain  // 2 Jump Rings // 1 Brass Lobster Clasp

    You can make a pompom with two bits of cardboard each in a ring shape, holding them together and wrapping the yarn around them both, then cutting the yarn as with the pompom maker and wrapping a thread or piece of yarn between the two cardboard rings (that’s if you don’t want to spend ten dollars on something you can get for free!)

    Love the necklace!

    I like the juxtaposition of the pom pom and the chain! I am pretty obsessed with pom pom makers right now as well. They are just so satisfying. xo

    I kind of just want to make pom poms… all day! Looks like so much fun and an easy way to dress up an old knit hat or scarf.

    I love pom poms! My grandma used to crochet slippers for us with pom poms on top and they are my favorite ever. So, poms always put a smile on my face and remind me of her. I’ve got to get one of those contraptions to make poms! Thanks grace!

    What a great idea for a necklace, the blend of comfy yarn paired with hard metal is very cool!

    In our local town, we don’t have a store that solely sells stuff for crafts. We don’t even have pom pom makers or Mod Podge for that matter. Now, I can just die in envy looking at this beautiful necklace.
