15 Pom Pom & Tassel DIY Ideas

And why DIYing your own pom poms and tassels can save you the big bucks.

If you’ve browsed almost any clothing or home store in the last few months, it seems like EVERYTHING has a pom pom or tassel (or both!) attached to it. I receive photos almost daily of pom pom and tassel goodies that people see in stores that make them think of TNTP – it’s crazy!

What’s also crazy is how much some of these items cost in stores. Granted, many pricier items are of great quality and their materials and labor merit the price tags they’re given, HOWEVER not all of us (myself included!) are able to afford luxury pom pom and tassel items. But guess what? Pom poms and tassels are not expensive to make. In fact, one of the reasons I got into making them in the first place (outside of my genuine pom pom and tassel obsession) is because they’re such an affordable craft!

My mission in sharing my extensive pom pom and tassel knowledge with the world is to show you just how easy and inexpensive it is to make your OWN pom poms and tassels and attach them to things you may already have in your home and closet, saving you lots of $$$ to get in on the season’s hottest trend.

I’ve pulled together some of my favorite inspiration images of items that you can easily make yourself.

If you’re determined to DIY your own fabulous, professional looking pom poms and tassels and attach them to ALL THE THINGS, I’ve got you covered. In our online course How to Master Pom Poms and Tassels I walk you through my expert tips to making polished poms and tassels and show you how to attach them to ANYTHING. That’s right! Straw totes? BOOM. In need of a festive garland? We’ve got you covered. Bag charms? We’re alll over it.

You can find How to Master Pom Poms and Tassels over at theneonteaparty.podia.com. And if you’re looking for a little taste of what our course has to offer, be sure to sign up for our totally FREE pom pom lesson.

  • Finished projects from yesterday’s pom pom workshop at @shopthestreet!! I am BEYOND obsessed with how these pom pom bag charm / keychains came out!! We switched up our usual workshop this time to focus JUST on poms and added simple clips instead of braided loops which allowed our crafters to really focus their time on making poms. 💥 Head to my last post to see how they styled their charms on their bags!!! SO STINKING CUTE. 🤩⠀
