How to Make Faux Fur Pom Poms


  • Faux fur
  • Thin yarn
  • Darning needle
  • Polyfill

You can purchase faux fur at any fabric store. JOANN Fabric always has good deals and sales so check them out!

When looking at faux fur, the longer the hairs the fluffier the pom pom will be. So keep that in mind when you are picking out your fur.

Step One

Decide on how large you would like your pom poms.

For most hats you can cut 5.5″ squares. Cut larger if you’d like a bigger pom pom. if you would like double pom poms on a hat cut smaller squares (4.5″)

Using a rotary cutter or an exacto knife works best when cutting fur.

Step Two

Once you have your squares cut out you can start stitching the pom poms. I like to use a thicker crochet thread. I

Do a running stitch around the edge of the square.


Step Four

Start sinching the pom pom closed. Stuff it with polyfill. Make sure to not over stuff the pompom

Step Five

Pull tightly closed and knot it. Leave two longer strands of thread/yarn so you can use it to attach to your hat.

    This is awesome thanks so much. They want 12.99 for ONE pompom in the local fabric and local yarn store. I was buying used hats at the thrift store and ripping the pm poms off. But even the sometimes hats were 5 or 6 bucks. This is great!
