Hats with a pompom seem to be everywhere on the street. I was given this purple pompom last Christmas. It is meant to be used as a keyring or a handbag embellishment and I used it on the front of my rucksack as a bag an embellishment last winter.
I realised when going through my current winter hat collection that I still have this early 2000’s faux suede hat.
It is nothing special but by adding my no longer used pompom I get a new winter hat that is on trend and it costs nothing.
Superdug was even giving away pompoms not so long ago if you bought 3 makeup items so I am pretty sure lots of people hve these. I even saw some in the Pound Shop. Even if you had to buy the elastic and needle used to attach the pompom it would be very cheap to make this. And very easy as well.
What you need is a pompom, a hat, some thin elastic and a bodkin or a needle with a large eye and scissors to cut elastic.
First take the keyring off your pompom if you have a key ring and locate the piece of elastic that the keyring was threaded through.

It’s a tiny loop of elastic.
You can just about see it here if I thread the needle through it - see right
Decide where on your hat you want to put your pompom.
On this hat which is made in segments I went for as close to the centre point as I could get the needle to go through the fabric.
Then thread the elastic through your needle, push through from the inside to the outside of the hat and thread the needle through the elastic loop on your pompom, where you removed the keyring.
|Inside of hat|
Thread the needle back inside the hat keeping as close to the centre of the hat as possible.
Pull both ends of the elastic inside the hat and tie securely in a knot.
And that’s it. Enjoy your updated hat.
