How To Make A Pom Pom Hairband

 In Create, Style

As I’m sure many of you know, I am a big fan of Pom Poms! They have taken the fashion industry by storm this summer, (hooray!) adorning everything from sandals to baskets and kimonos to earrings.

They are nostalgic, fun and whimsical which for me, gives them their perennial appeal, and once you mastered creating them, you can embellish until your hearts content. I especially love taking Pom Pom Earrings, Headbands and Hairbands to festivals for some easy festive style.

One of the simplest things to start with is a Pom Pom Hairband, once you’ve got that down the worlds your, well, Pom Pom!

Here’s my step by step guide on how to create your own Pom Pom Hairband. 

You’ll need, yarn, scissors, a pom pom maker and a hairband.

I’ve chosen the 2nd smallest size maker for this project as it makes a cute little pom pom.

I love this tie dye yarn at the moment, and I’m going for a suitably festive colour way, perfect for summer festivals.

Pom pom yarn

To start,  open up one side of your pom pom maker. In your right hand (left hand if your left handed) hold the end of the yarn securely in place with your thumb.

Once you’ve done this, wrap the yarn around the half circle until you have covered all of the plastic like below. Close this side of the maker and cut the yarn.

The next step is to open the other side of the maker and repeat steps 1,2 and 3 until both sides are complete, closed and the yarn is cut.

Once completed, you can then cut all the way around the marker. With a length of yarn, tie a double knot tightly around the middle of the maker and yarn. This holds your pom pom together so make sure this is really secure. You are now ready to pull the two sides of your pom pom maker apart.

Ok, so your pom pom might still need a bit of TLC at this point. With you scissors, trim any straggly ends so you have a neat round pom. Remember to leave the two ends of your length of yarn long so you can use these to tie the pom pom to the hair tie.
