Lately everywhere I look there are pompom hair bands so I thought why not do a pompom hair band tutorial!
Seriously it’s hard to turn around without seeing some kind of variation! I’ve been seeing them worn in hair and as bracelets or tied to bags. At first I couldn’t stand them but they’ve been slowly growing on me… and now I think they’re cute! The only thing is that here in Aus because they are more hard to come by they are very expensive, who wants to pay $20 for a hair tie?!
So I decided to make my own and it took around 10 minutes.
What you need:-Pom poms in various colours
Get your stretchy jewelry thread and thread it onto your needle.
Pick up your first pom pom and thread it onto the elastic. Don’t go straight through the middle, go slightly to the side so you can fit as many pom poms onto it as possible.
Thread them all on!
Once you’ve got them all there, thread your needle through the first one pom pom again. Pull the thread tight to form a circle. Depending on how thick your stretchy thread is you might need to go through all of them again to make it extra sturdy.
Now tie the thread off in a double knot. Make sure to pull the knot extra tight but be careful it doesn’t pull the pom poms too close together or you won’t be able to stretch it over your hair! Finish by adding a tiny drop of glue to the knot for extra strength.
Taadaa! I am Wonder Woman deflecting bullets!
The lovely Super Kawaii Mama shows us you can use all kinds of sizes and colours:
Great for entertaining yourself as well.
And SKM’s doggie is an even cuter model:
And of course you could just wear it like a normal person…
Next post is going to be a Hime Gyaru FAQ so if you have any questions this is the last chance to get them in 🙂
Let me know if any of you make a pompom hair band too!
