July 14th, 2017 by Samantha Weaver DIY Pom Pom Trim: For Jewelry, Clothes, Accessories & More
BIG NEWS! The Crossroads DIY Studio is back in action!
We’ve spent most of the summer obsessed with everything and anything pom pom. Clothing, accessories, bathing suits—you name it. If it was dripping with multi-colored pom poms, we said “take my money!” Then it dawned on us that pom pom trim accessorizing would be the perfect DIY!
What you will need:
1. Pom Pom Trim
2. Assorted sizes and colors of poms
4. A ruler
5. Fabric adhesive or a glue gun
You will also need plain accessories and clothing to adorn with pom poms! Today, we’ll be adding pom poms to a pair of gold hoops, a sun hat, some red slides, jeans, a black crop top, and a bonus item!
Pom Pom Hoop Earrings
I’ve seen hoops with pom poms available for $29+, but with this simple DIY you can accomplish the look for less than $10!
You’ll need to use hoop earrings that have threaded closures, not hooks. Pick your desired color of pom pom and start threading them directly onto the earring! It’s that easy. Add one pom or five, then space as desired—either way you’ll end up with a festive pair of hoop earrings!
Sun Hat with Pom Pom Trim
Add some flare to your boring sun hat with a pom pom trim! Simply use a binder clip to hold the trim in place, then wrap the trim around the brim of your hat and glue it down as you go. Secure with another clip at the end, and cut off the excess trim. Wait 2-4 hours to dry and voila! Beach-approved headwear.
Slides with Large Pom Detail
Leandra of The Man Repeller would approve of these big time. They’re bold, they’re bright, they’re downright gaudy, and we love them.
Plug in your glue gun and grab your largest poms! Simply decide where you want to place your poms first, then just start gluing! Dry for an hour minimum.
Crop Top with Pom Pom Trim
To accomplish the perfect pom pom trim on a t-shirt or crop top, just begin as we did with the sun hat by clipping down the edge of your trim to the seam of your top. Then just glue and wrap around the hem of your top, and clip off any excess! Let adhesive glue dry for 2-4 hours.
Jeans with Pom Pom Trim
Last year, we did a DIY on frayed hem jeans, but this year we’re going full pom pom! Clip, wrap, and glue, and you’ll end up with a pair of sassy-bottomed jeans for summer! I’ve seen jeans with pom pom trim retail at $100+, but we made these for just $2.50 using jeans we already owned.
That’s a wrap! What did you think of this super easy DIY?
BONUS! Headband with Pom Pom Detail:
The options are endless with a bag of poms poms and some glue, so don’t pay for pom pom trim—do it yourself!
