I love pom poms, but I haven’t made them for a long time and forgot how much fun it is to wind a pom pom 😀 This minimalist name ring with pom poms and tassels is a gift for a little princess.
You will need
- Wooden hoop 28cm
- Wire – when it comes to thickness, you need to center it, thick wire is hard to bend, thin wire does not hold the shape. I used floristic wire, relatively thin and it was difficult to stabilize the inscription with the name.
- Yarn – colors depending on your needs. For the girl’s garland, I used pink, white and gray yarns.
- Pompom machine or cardboard circles – depending on which method you choose for making pompoms.
- Hot glue – needed to secure the yarns at the ends of the wire and to stick the pompoms to the wooden hoop.
- Printer – optional, it will be useful to print a template with your name, which makes the work much easier.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
