You might have seen my DIY pompom shorts in this month’s magazine créative
Little pompom shorts to elebrate cinco de mayo (oops i forgot to post the english version on this DIY in time!). It’ll be here for next year!
Any excuse is good to put pompoms on anything anyways!
I strongly advise to wear this while eating 7-layer dip!
- Embroidery thread (i used some leftovers from this lot )
- embroidery needle
- piece of cardboard
To make the pompoms
Cut a “c” shape in your cardboard. Wrap your thread around it 10/12 times. With a piece of thread tie it up and cut the threads. I ended up needing 20.
Then sew them on to the shorts
I used 2 different colors (blue and whote) to make like “x”s to sew the pompoms on. I wrapped the threads around on the inside. Really try to get into all of the “hoops” from the top on he pompoms.
It holds on really decently, i just don’t think they can go in the washing machine anymore.
