DIY Gifts: 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 for a Christmas break activity. My nieces and sisters would love this project to create and receive. They're cute stalking stuffers and take less than 30 minutes each.  Use Dritz 1/4" Metallic Elastic for a festive 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 zig zag 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.
    These are fun to create for many other projects. I like adding them to knit hats too. Try the Metallic Elastic on these DIY Sleep Masks for another darling gift idea.
