How to Add a Pom to ANY Hat!

February 5, 2019
The pom pom craze is REAL!   And, I’m not mad about it.  I love having a fur ball (or two) on top of my head!  The truth is, I feel a little naked wearing hats that don’t have a pom on them!  They are just so fun!  And cute!  I have a few beanies that are just plain (no pom), so I decided to spice them up by adding a little fluff to the top!

I happened to find some cute fur balls at Hobby Lobby and they turned out to be the perfect accessory to an otherwise boring hat.  My store had several different colors to choose from…black, white, brown, grey, and some that were a mixture of the previously mentioned colors.  And the best part is, each pom cost $2.99!  If you use your 40% off coupon, and an existing beanie, this project could potentially cost you a whopping $1.80!  If you are in need of a beanie, my Hobby Lobby store had those as well.  

Not only was this project extremely inexpensive, it was also SUPER simple.  I’m talking so easy you don’t need any crafting skills whatsoever.  You could have two left thumbs and still be able to add poms to all of your beanies!

You’re going to need three things to accomplish this task.  I feel like I’m stating the obvious, but for those who need it all spelled out:
* a hat ( I used one that I already had)
* a pom (This one is from Hobby Lobby, which I highly recommend because it comes with an elastic string attached, which is what makes this project so simple.  I found mine in the craft section near the felt and pipe cleaners.)
* scissors

Your pom will have an elastic loop.  Cut the loop in half, leaving it attached to the pom.

 Poke each end of the elastic through the top section of the hat, ensuring you have it centered.

The elastic ends should be poking out through the underneath side of the hat like this.   Now, just tie the ends in a knot and you are good to go!

Wasn’t that EASY?  And look how cute that once boring beanie is now!!!  You could add two poms if you are into that…or three or four!  If you add four, I will need a picture of that.  For sure.  
The cool thing about adding a pom this way is you can always remove it if you ever decide you’d rather not have a giant fluff ball on your hat.  Just untie the knot, or snip the elastic with scissors and you’re back to the original hat you started with!
