Temporary pom pom attachment

I recently heard someone say they used a button to temporarily attach pom poms to their hats.  Until I played with attaching the pom pom, I couldn’t quite picture how this would work.  Because of that, I decided to share my process with you.  This process will work for a pom pom with strings that are attached.  If you don’t have strings/thread attached, then you need to add it.

Step 1

Put the strings through the hat; from the outside to the inside (see above photo).  I pulled the thread through the hat just to the outside of the final round of stitches.  The inside of the hat will look like the below photo.

Step 2

Thread the strings through a button.  I used a button that was 1 inch in diameter.  I would recommend using a button that is large enough to stabilize the pom pom and light enough to not weigh down the top of the hat.

Step 3

Tie the strings on top of the button as in the photo below.  I used a shoelace knot so the pom pom can be removed when I wash the hat.

Step 4

Trim the threads and tuck the strings under the button.  Your pom pom is now securely attached!
