DIY Faux Fur Pom Pom Key Chain

'Tis the season for making gifts and who doesn't love a faux fur pom pom key chain? This is a fun gift for little ones and teens. Or even better make as a group activity. My nieces and sisters would love this project to create and receive. They're cute gifts for all occasions and take less than 30 minutes each.  Use Dritz 1/4" Metallic Elastic for a fun spin.  Get the details below on how to make these faux fur pom pom key chains. 


Create a circle template. My circle has a 5" diameter. You can adjust the size as you'd like (small to large). Trace the circle on the back of the faux fur with a marker.Remove with a razor blade to avoid fur flying everywhere. Use a running stitch with a heavier wt. thread and needle and about 1/8" from the edge. Thread should be 3 x the size of the circle. Pull to cinch the faux fur in, don't cut the thread. Add a ball of stuffing. Pull the thread as tight as you can and continue sewing the opening closed to just before the halfway point. 

Using Dritz Small Swivel Hook & D-Ring set and 1/4" Metallic Elastic

  • Cut a strip of the elastic about 12"

  • Pin the cut edges together with a 1/2' over lap

  • Sew the overlap with a zigzag stitch (or hot glue) a couple times to secure.  You also will want to sew just along the folded edge to secure the swivel hook from moving. You can also use hot glue. 

  • Place the overlapped edge inside the opening of pom pom.

  • Secure into place by sewing with the remaining thread.

  • Sew the opening closed as well. 

  • Knot the thread several times to secure.
