How to: Detachable Pom-Poms

Now that it is freezing outside, more and more of my projects are becoming wool-related, probably out of necessity. This is a really quick and simple project, which is perfect for updating all your woolly hats - a detachable pom-pom. You could even pin it onto a scarf or bag, or make a little one to pin on a jumper. And because they're detachable, you don't have to commit to just one colour pom-pom. All you'll need for this project is some wool in a colour of your choice, and a brooch back.

First off, make a pom-pom. I'm assuming you know how to make pom-poms because I spent the majority of my childhood making them. You can use a pom-pom maker, or the good old fashioned cereal box card way.

Then sew a brooch back close to the centre of your pom-pom. Make sure it's nice and secure.

Then you can pin it into place on the hat of your choice. It would look great on a 90s style beanie in a contrasting shade.

I'm planning on making some more non-wool related projects soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
