Ideal for a DIY gift or something to make for yourself, it takes only a few minutes to create this statement piece. The pom pom isn't just ornamentation -- it's the star of the show.

Materials

To make your own pom pom necklace, you'll need: 10 inches pom pom ribbon, 10 inches rhinestone strand, 10 inches curb chain, separated (10 for the necklace, 1 for the clasp), 2 feet orange nylon cord, 12 jump rings, 2 eye pins, 2 end caps, 1 clasp, wire cutters, flat-nose pliers and permanent glue.

Step 1

Step 1

Align the top of the pom pom ribbon with the length of the chain. Open your jump-rings and hook one end of the strand of pom-pom garland to one end of the chain. Close the jump-rings. Every four links, on the same edge of the chain, hook together the chain to the pom pom ribbon so the pom pom ribbon hangs from the chain in a flat manner.

Remove the excess chain (1 inch). Save this for the clasp at the back of the necklace.

Step 3

Take your cord and weave it through the curb chain in an up and down pattern. The cord will look like an inch-worm wiggling up and over the joint of a flat chain. This will create a Chanel-esque look to the chain. Scoot it through until the chain is right in the middle of the length of the cord.
