The other day, I did a fun Instagram story of how to make these easy DIY tulle pom pom hairbands. Allie and I got inspired playing around in the basement in the cupboards full of craft goodies, where we found a huge supply of tulle! I had used a bunch of it in my Craftsy Class, The Costume Box. I knew the materials would come in handy. Folks’ excitement about the tutorial convinced me to transfer the how-to over here to the blog. I think it works out just fine!
Once Allie and I made one tulle pom pom, we couldn’t stop! We decided to make one for every girl in her class.
Because we did it as an Instagram story, I wasn’t worried about perfect photos etc. Allie and I relaxed and giggled and had an absolute a ball. It was so much fun to craft with her in a non-business way. It made me determined to do it more often! In the end, the photos, though not perfect, seemed good enough to share with you in this forum anyway. I’m working on letting go of perfectionistic tendencies. I hope you enjoy the tutorial!
DIY Tulle Pom Pom Hair Bands
:: Wrap tulle from a 6″ tulle spool around your hand 15 times if two colors, or 30 times if one color.
:: Cut the end, freeing bundle from tulle spools.
:: Remove the bundle from your hand and tie a piece of twine around the middle of the bundle as tightly as you can.
:: Cut the loops at each end of the bundle.
:: Spread out all the ends, and trim all the ends into a ball shape.
:: Use twine ends to attach a hair band to the center of the pom with knots.
:: Cut twine ends close to center.
:: Start accessorizing!
I hope these DIY tulle pom pom hair bands make you as happy as they made us!
Next time, I think that Allie and I will try making them in bulk. If you’re interested in trying that, use my bulk pom pom tutorial here. It should work that way well.
Thanks I enjoyed your journey as a crafter and a grandma of two young girls I will take with me what you taught me thanks again geri
