Anthropologie DIY Pom Pom Necklace

final pom pom

This is a super easy DIY Anthropologie inspired necklace.  Who doesn’t love an Anthropologie necklace without the huge price tag?  Here is a picture of the inspiration piece.  Mine cost a total of $15.00.  It would’ve cost less had I had all of the yarn, but, my version is much more affordable anyways.

Anthro Version

Here’s What You Need:

  • Chain 
  • Clasp (I chose a toggle clasp.)
  • 2 Jump Rings
  • Needle Rose Pliers
  • Scissors
  • Fork
  • Thread
  • Needle

Measure out the chain.  I measured mine to 16″.  However, if you want it a little bit longer then you can make it 17″ or even 18″ if you prefer.

Open up the jump rings and attach them to the ends of the chain.  While you are doing this, put in your toggle and bar.

Next, make all of your pompoms.  You will need to make a total of 5.  Pick out the colors that suit you the best.  I chose this monochromatic color combination because I knew it would be something I would wear.  Using a fork, wrap your yarn around about 60 to 70 times.  This will give you a nice full pom pom.

Cut about a 5″ piece of yarn and slide it through the tongs of the fork and around.  Pull this as tight as you possibly can and tie a knot.

With a good pair of scissors, I used my sewing scissors, you will want to trim all of the loops.  Shape your pom pom so it isn’t lopsided by trimming the ends of it.

Next, take a needle and coordinating thread and sew the pom poms onto the chain.  I made sure that I sewed in through a couple of the chain links.  I went back and sewed into the next pomp pom as well.   This really worked to help support the pom poms on the chain.

It’s really that simple and takes very little time at all.  My girls are on a big pom pom making kick now that I made these.

    This looks great! I actually think yours looks better with the blacks and greys, rather than with the random orange pom-pom in the middle

      Thank you so much Lisa! I really liked the black and grays too. That’s so funny you thought the red pom pom was totally random. I did too.
