There are many ways to make faux fur pom poms. Each maker generally adapts their process to what works for them based on the materials and tools they have available and their personal preferences. I've seen many different ways to make fur poms, but this is what my process looks like.
One of the biggest mysteries that surround fur poms is where to get the faux fur by the yard. Faux fur can be purchased many different places. JoAnn Fabric & Crafts has some options, Fabric.com and BigZfabric.com are popular online options. You can also find many sellers on Etsy selling DIY pom sets of pre-cut squares of fur as well as fully assembled poms. This is a great option if you don't want the mess of the fur, want a selection of different colors, and don't need mass quantities of one color of pom.
I sell completed poms in my shop, too, if you're looking to skip all the hassle (and the furry mess) and just buy them. They can be found here.
I am an avid crafter, so I use a lot of tools to make the process as easy and efficient as possible. If you don't have the same tools, use what ya got and go from there! 😉
