Can you believe it’s only a few days until September? I’m getting more and more excited for the cooler weather ahead! To celebrate, let’s add some fun and flair to an old sweater with this Pom Pom Sweater Refashion.
You’ve probably seen pom pom sweaters in crazy colors floating around Pinterest, but personally I think the look is more wearable and practical (for me) in neutral colors. That being said, now my 7 and 3 year old want matching sweaters with yellow, green, pink, and purple poms. 😉 By the time you read this, I’ll probably be at my craft table making colorful, festive pom pom sweaters for them to match!
This project is one of the easiest clothing refashions on Creative Fashion Blog, but also surprisingly time-consuming. For this tutorial, we’ll be hand-sewing each pom individually to the sweater so they stay intact long term. I gave myself about 20 minutes to make this sweater and ended up needing about an hour and a half. That’s OK though, because it turned out great and could still be done in an afternoon.
I love how this Pom Pom Sweater transitions into fall perfectly. We’ve played with so many poms over the summer and I’m hellbent on finding more ways to incorporate them into the colder months ahead. This summer, we’ve made pom pom shorts, pom pom sandals, and my personal favorite: the 10 minute pom pom purse.

My supply lists are totally shoppable for your convenience! I’ve gathered everything you’ll need to complete this tutorial without adding extra errands to your day via the aff. links below:
How To Make A Pom Pom Sweater
- Thread your Hand Needle in your black thread and tie a knot at the end so it doesn’t slip through your pom pom. I liked to tie mine at least twice so my poms were secure.
- Stick your needle through the center, most dense area of your pom and pull your thread through.
- Once your Pom is threaded, slide your needle through the top of your sweater and out the other side and pull the extra thread through.
- From the inside of the sweater, push your hand needle back through the top and be sure it pushes through another section of your pom pom.
- Repeat step 3 and 4 twice for each pom before knotting and cutting the extra thread.
- Keep adding poms until you like the overall look!
