I’m taking cues from Alice and Olivia this week and sharing with you one of my new favorite fashion projects, the pom pom DIY top tutorial. Everything Alice and Olivia makes is my favorite, including this Pom Pom Sweater. If you ask me, poms poms are like parties. I LOVE PARTIES. In terms of fashion, pom poms are currently having all the fun! Whether they are on bags, sandals, or jewelry – they are making statement. Naturally, it makes sense that we add them to our everyday garments, right?! YES. Unfortunately the original cost of the top is almost $300 – yikes! It’s true, parties are expensive but your fashion choices don’t have to be – so let’s get partying!
- Darice Pom Poms (I got the large assorted bag so I could pick out all the specific colors I wanted.)
- Needle and Thread
- Top or Sweater
Step 1. First of all, I started with sorting through the sizes and colors of pom poms I wanted to use. As mentioned in my supply list, I choose to use the assorted big bag because I felt like I have more control over my color selection and size.
Step 2. Using chalk, I marked out where I wanted to put the pom poms. When making this project, please note: you are in control of this look. You are the designer. Consequently, that means you get to decide how organized you want your pom poms to be placed on your garment AND the order of color.
If hand sewing makes you nervous, you could always use a strong glue like e6000 or fabric glue. I recommend testing it beforehand. Above all, wash this top (inside out) on the delicate cycle and let it air dry – just to be safe. Hoping you love this pom pom DIY top as much as I do!
