This DIY tutorial will teach you how to make Faux Fur Pom-Poms for hats easily and quickly using this photo and video tutorial.
Now that it is winter time many of you are crocheting hats and beanies. I have to tell you, they are my favorite crochet design to create. If I could I would design crochet hats and beanies all day, every day. I especially love adding faux fur pom-poms to them.
Seriously! It takes forever for me to wrap my yarn around my pom-pom maker to make my yarn pom-poms. Don’t get me wrong. I love them. They are fluffy and super easy to make. But sometimes, you just need that faux fur pom-pom to spice up that hat you just made.
So, I recently went to Joann to get myself some faux fur. I was lucky, cause on the day I went they had a huge faux fur sale going on and I get so much faux fur for an incredibly low price. As I already had my tapestry needle, scissors, yarn and stuffing at home, I knew this will be much cheaper and faster to make then a yarn pom-pom.
I also created a Reversible Faux Fur Pom-Pom Tutorial. Be sure to check that one out as well.
Also, for those of you who want very cheap stuffing, let me give you a tip. If you have any ripped, old or dirty stuffed animals, just take them apart and save the stuffing. I do that. Saves so much money. Better than throwing those stuffed animals in the trash with free stuffing/polyfil inside. And for the yarn that you need to make the faux fur pom-poms for hats, I simply use leftover yarn I have saved for situations like this.
So, now let me show you how I actually make faux fur pom-poms and why they are so amazingly fast to make.
The Most Important Part of all: Faux Fur Pom-Pom Photo Tutorial
Now cut a circle using anything you have (even a bowl will do). My circular faux fur has 6 inches in diameter. Once you have your circle of faux fur, you will now weave your yarn with your needle on the edge about 1/4 inch from the edge, all around in a circle.
Once the yarn is woven all the way around, you pull the yarn slightly and add the polyfill inside. Then close the hole all the way and make a knot and weave your yarn a few times through (like you would if making a hat) and make a few more knots.
Now, the faux fur pom pom for hats is ready to use. See! It was super simple and fast, too. Don’t cut your yarn off as you can now use that to attach the faux fur pom poms to hats, scarves, rugs, blankets and so much more.
Be aware, that it can be harder to make faux fur pom-poms if the hair of the faux fur is really long. It can also be harder to weave your needle with the yarn through. But it is possible, none the less.

Every time, I need a faux fur pom pom, I will now make them myself. In fact, I just bought a blanket that was made with faux fur. Instead of using it as a blanket, I will cut it up and use it to make faux fur pom-poms.
In addition, I also came up with a way to make reversible faux fur pom poms. So cool. That tutorial is now available HERE.

See what Angela, from my crochet group, said: “…Just today alone, I was speaking to a friend and mentioned this group to her because she’s having a hard time emotionally. I told her she needed to join so she can learn some cool crochet techniques and keep herself busy. You’re my first “go-to” group. Not only do you have some amazing ideas… But it’s you as a person that I can relate to. You’re kind, generous, and probably take things to heart more than you should (I do that too lol)… But you’re awesome! …”
