Pom Pom Rainbow Jewellery Craft Tutorial
Some craft materials are adorable before you even make anything out of them aren’t they? I am a total sucker for buttons and pom poms, they scream out cute and colourful to me, and I just have to add them to my craft supplies!
I found these super cute mini pom poms for a totally bargain price on Amazon. At the time of writing this, a whopping 1000 mini pom poms are just $4.94 or £2.37. What a deal! Needless to say I bought a few thousand and have been finding all sorts of uses for them including these gorgeous pom pom rainbow jewellery crafts.

How To Make Your Pom Pom Rainbow Jewellery Craft
In this tutorial I’ll show you how we made our pom pom rainbow bracelet but you can use the same method to make rainbow necklaces or rings too.
Choose the colours and order that you want your mini pom poms and simply thread them onto your embroidery floss using a sturdy needle. The trick is to make sure you thread it right through the middle of each pom pom to get it to stay on the thread. (You could always add a dab of glue to your thread as you go too if you want.)
For our rainbow bracelet we made three lines of pom poms, just long enough to reach around our wrist. (You can just use one or two lines or lots more, it’s up to you!)
We tied the end threads into a knot and then plaited the excess floss.
We trimmed our plaits to about 10cm and tied the end off in a knot.
This left us with a gorgeous triple band rainbow bracelet. I just adore how colourful it is.
You can use exactly the same method to make bracelets in all sorts of widths and also rainbow rings and necklaces too.
For the ring though we used colourful jewellery elastic instead so that it was easier to get on and off without needing to tie it.
I think this pom pom rainbow jewellery craft is fabulous fun for bigger kids. It would be a great craft for Summer camps or to sell at school fundraisers don’t you think?
