How To Make A DIY Pom Pom Tassel Circle Bag
First, lay out the pom poms and tassels onto your bag to get a general idea of where to string everything so that it lays at varying heights.
Once you have a good idea of placement, cut three pieces of twine for each strand of pom poms you’ll be making.
Start threading each piece of twine through the pom poms to create a pom pom garland.
Do this for all three strands. And be sure to leave a few extra pom poms unthreaded so that you can hot glue them onto the strand in groups once the rest of the tassel strand is completed.
Keep in mind we’ll also be gluing the loose pom poms to the top and bottom of the finished strand to give it a completed look.
Once you have a finished strand, knot the bottom of the twine tightly around the last pom pom to reinforce the thread so they don’t fall off.
Leave a few extra pom poms unthreaded so that you can hot glue them onto the strand in groups once the rest of the tassel strand is completed.
Now, cut a long piece of the cord trim and starting knotting the tassels onto the strand one by one.
Make sure they’re close enough to just overlap one another.
Twist the top tassel jump ring through the gold keyring.
And then, knot the top of the cord trim onto the gold key ring for extra reinforcement.
Use the extra loose pom poms to hot glue onto the strand in clusters where needed.
You should now have four different strands that look like this:
Now, add each of the pom pom strands onto the key ring by knotting them onto the ring one by one.
Once everything is strung, hot glue a pom pom to the top of the knot to hide them near the keyring for a finished look.
You can also do the same with the knot on the last tassel at the bottom.
Then, just string your keyring onto your new bag, and you’re all set!
