I’m back with another DIY. Another DIY that includes pom poms! And I might have another one in the works… – no, you’re obsessed with pom poms! So to feed your current and unexplainable obsession with pom poms I am walking you through how I made this cute DIY Pom Pom Christmas Jumper with festive iron on elbow(ish) patches. I suppose you could class this as one of those ugly DIY christmas jumpers but I think it’s cute dammit. And so do other people! A.K.A. three other people, who may or may not be related to me.
On to the DIY..
HOW TO DO IT
- Get yourself a basic jumper, mine is from this one from ASOS, ideally a material type that will work well with an iron on transfer. So maybe don’t go fluffy or silky. It might look hella cute, but the iron on just won’t stick.
- Go to town making your pom poms. I made 11 in total but I am still considering making more and adding them to the back of the jumper as well. In my previous post I told you how I rated the pom pom maker I’d bought but for this DIY I need much smaller pom poms so I made them via the fork method instead.
HOW TO MAKE MINI POM POMS WITH A FORK:
1. I looped the yarn around the fork 30-50 times as I wanted the pom poms to vary slightly in size, but that’s a personal preference. 2. Once thats done thread a separate peice of yarn through the centre of the fork and tie tightly and securely. 3. Next slide the yarn gently towards the end of the fork to give you a bit more leverage to cut along the sides. 4. Once both sides are cut, gently slide it off and roll into shape. 5. You can then trim any excess peices to make it more round.
- Once made I laid the pom poms out where I thought I like them to be placed. I then pegged each location and went on the sew each one on. This way I got the location exactly right for all of them rather than gauging later mid sewing.
- You can get whatever festive iron on you can find but I really liked these glitter trees. The seller I bought them off on eBay sells them in multiple colours and sizes as well.
- The next step is to figure out where you want the iron ons to sit. I was going to go for elbow patches but figured they’d fall off very quickly if I did that. So with the help of my Mum I pinned the transfers on at an even level to each other whilst wearing the jumper. Then take it off carefully!
- Iron on as directed by instructions of whatever iron on transfer you bought. And you’re done. Very easy, cheap, unique and I think pretty cute DIY Christmas Jumper.
