Understated Pom Pom Chic
Add a little bit of pom pom to your outfit with this cute collar DIY.
Gather all your materials. You can use a ready made collar, cut up an old shirt or just use a whole shirt. You can also match your poms to the colour of the shirt or use a contracting colour.
Starting at the tip of the collar, tie a knot in the end of your thread and take your needle through the fabric from back to front. Pop your first pompom onto your needle and push it through.
Take the stitch back through the fabric from front to back. You can do this a couple of times to make sure the pom is super secure.
Add your next pom and secure it on just the same.
Keep on adding as many poms as you like. You can go for a triangle collar tip look like you see here or you can go crazy and cover the whole thing!
Tie off the end of your thread and cut off the excess thread.
Ta da! You're all done. Pop your collar under a fun jumper and get ready to shake your pom poms!
