I’ve been seeing these puffy accessories everywhere lately so I figured I would show you all how easy they are to make 😀 Swimmer and a couple of other brands have them as hair clips, brooches and all kinds of things.

This is how my version turned out:

Puffy Stars Tutorial

What you need:

  • Coat hanger/wire
  • Fluffy yarn (I think the name of this one was flossy or something)
  • Glue
  • Diamantes/small bows/pearls/decorations
  • Pliers
  • Tape

Take apart the coat hanger…

And use the pliers to make the shapes you want. I did a star and a  heart.

Use a piece of tape to hold the ends together…

Get some yarn and start wrapping it around…

Keep wrapping and keep wrapping and keep wrapping… and keep wrapping some more until they are really big and squishy like this:

Hot glue your decorations on in a completely random way and that’s it…

You can then add on a brooch pin or something on the back to attach it to yourself and that’s all there is to it ^_^

You can also make bows in the same style by knitting a square out of this yarn and scrunching the middle of it. Add a little ribbon to hold it in place and you’ve got a very cute accessory!
