Furry PomPom Hair Accessory


I’ve recently found a nice diy-upcycling-project on Pinterest: upcycled fur pompoms. As you have read in a recent post, I am obsessed by Pinterest and spend way to many time surfing and exploring all the images and ideas that seam to be endlessly available on this platform. BUT in my defense, you can find sooooooo much cool things on there 🙂

Just like this fur pompom idea. I know, for some of you using fur equals supporting the fur industry and by doing so maybe support cruelty to animals. But the fur I use or wear will never be new. I always use fake fur or vintage fur. And the cruel production of new fur has to stop, let me be clear.
So what do you need to make this nice winter accessory?

– scissors

– leather needle

– filling

– strong sewing thread

– hair elastic

– (fake) fur. I used an old fur coat that was ripped and can now be upcycled
