The world is pom pom crazy right now and the obsession is slowly infiltrating the fashion scene, which is more than okay with me! I remember seeing a pom pom sweater on a friend’s Instagram last year and it was love at first sight. In keeping with my New Year’s resolution to wear more color I made a DIY pom pom cardigan for myself with bright mini poms. There are a couple ways you can go about doing it, scroll the the photos below to see how!

What You Need: 2 of 7
You need just a few things:
Needle and thread
Arrange the Poms 3 of 7
Figure out where you want the poms to be before you start sewing them on! I wanted it to be pretty evenly covered so I counted the same amount of poms for each side of the cardigan. You could also just eyeball it!
Sew! 4 of 7
String the needle through the pom and sew onto the designated spot. Just a few tight stitches will do!
Don’t Forget the Sleeves and Back 5 of 7
This is what my cardigan looked like after I finished the front and the sleeves, don't forget to cover the back in poms too!
An Even Easier Alternative 6 of 7
If you want an even easier option to make a pom sweater, Liquid Stitch is the way to go! I did one side sewing and one side using this glue and it took half the time. It says machine washable but it may be less permanent than sewing.
