These fur ornament baubles were such a simple idea I wondered if they even warranted their own blog post. Since I have been a crazy about plaid, and fur and plaid go so well together AND my tree has a rustic theme, I decided to see if fur pom-poms would work as fur ornament baubles. The answer is yes. So much yes.
Aren’t they cute? They go well with my tree’s theme ( I do love a rustic Christmas).
They are simply fur pom-poms with a bit of holiday flair.
(OR if you are a Star Trek fan, they could be little holiday tribbles. Whatever brings you joy!)
DIY FUR ORNAMENT BAUBLES
What you need:
– Short-Pile Faux Fur Fabric
– Any Yarn
– 5/8″ Ribbon
– Hot Glue Gun
– Precision Knife
– Darning Needle
Start by making your pom-poms:
Or you can see a photo tutorial here.
You should have two threads poking out of the bottom of the pom-pom, the two ends of the string you used to make it. Take the long one, and thread the needle onto it. Push the needle up the the middle of the pom-pom and out the top.
We are going to have the pretty, round side on top and the cinched part on the bottom, opposite of the hat.
Then, about 1/8″ to the side, push the needle back down, forming a loop on top. Be careful that you don’t accidentally pull the loop tight. You won’t be able to find it again through the fur!
Tie a knot with the top loop.
Then tie a knot at the bottom, securing the ends.
Clip the ends. You can leave it bare, with I think it simple and cute, or you can attached a cute bow on top. Tie the bow separately, then attached it to the string with hot glue.
Glue it about 1/4″ up from the base of the loop, so it doesn’t get lost in the fur.
