Make: Pom Pom Earrings ๐ŸŒ™

DIY POM EARRINGS

So if you follow my IG, which ya probably dont (psst…what are you doing with your life?), but anyhooter, I have posted about my love of the Youtube Podcast by Potter and Bloom. Emma Potter has a wonderful blog, IG and Podcast where I am continually inspired. She had the earrings below on in an episode and I was like โ€œmust makeโ€ ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ. And so I did and now I share the tutorial with you.

What you will need (all below except noted):

1. Two wooden rings

2. Fish hook Earring Findings

3. Glue gun or E9000

4. Yarn of different colors

5. Eye Pins

6. Drill or hook to burrow a small whole (not pictured)

7. Scissors

8. Needle nose Pliers (not pictured).

 

All of the items, including the wooden rings, are available at Michaelโ€™s. They are not a sponsor (yet! ๐Ÿ˜Š), but thatโ€™s my go-to place for craft items.  I also purchase wooden rings from Etsy if I am prepared for orders.

The most time consuming part of the DIY is making the small poms. Of course, you can purchase them pre-made, but heck, if you are like me, you have yarn EVERYWHERE.๐Ÿงš Pre-made packs of mini poms though are very inexpensive.

It took me about 20-25 minutes to make the mini poms in various colors and the rest of this took a total of 10 minutes. If youโ€™d like to level up the earrings and make them a little different, you can wrap the wooden rings in a colored Embroidery thread or paint them. I may do this in the future.

Steps:

  • Make the mini poms. There are a bajillion YouTube videos on how to make a pom pom. I basically wrapped yarn around my index finger and middle finger 20 times, tied them all together then cut
  • Trim poms.
  • bore a tiny hole with a drill or a hook into each wooden ring
  • Insert eye pin and trim it down some so that it doesnt stick out (like mine in first photo). add tiny bit of glue in hole or bend it
  • Apply pom poms with an half inch in-between with E9000 or hot glue. Careful not to get it everywhere. Qtips are a dainty way to not get the E9000 all over.
  • Add fish hook finding with pliers in eye pins
  • Done!
Voila!
