Ha! I Made It!- Neon Pom Pom Necklace

I’ve mentioned that I’m obsessed with neon right now and while I’m still looking for that perfect neon dress I am still injecting little bits of neon into my winter wardrobe.

I wanted a neon necklace that was a little bolder than my bluma project necklace (seen here), so I decided to make one :).

There’s really not a whole lot of steps to this sweet DIY, but we shall first start off with supplies.



    • Chain-I had some lying around, but you can buy at any craft store or remake a necklace you don’t wear.
    • Pompom trim-About $2.00 a yard, you can buy at a craft store or find fun vintage trim on Etsy.
    • Jewelry pliers
    • Fishing wire thread
    • Needle
    • Scissors


  1. Measure your chain to your desired length and trim
  2. Thread your fishing wire thread through your needle
  3. Start attaching your pompom trim to the chain by basically sewing them together.
  4. SEW SEW SEW-I’m not going to lie this process was a little cumbersome for me at first, but once I got into a rhythm it went by pretty quick.

5. Once finished putting on the desired amount of trim either add a jump ring and a fastener or just attach the end links on the chain to close.

6. Wear and be merry :).

I love my pompom necklace! It feels super festive :).

    amazing tutorial! I love the color you chose! I’ve been eyeing the pom pom section at the craft store for quite some time, thinking I’ll make some bright jewelry. You’ve given me the push, I’m going to make this!

    I love your pompom necklace AND leopard nails. I confess, I tried them, and ended in utter frustration and anger at my inability to master the adhesive design (probably a reason I rarely do DIY projects!). I threw in the towel and got a manicure;)

    Good job, girl! I’m loving that red dress too. And seriously….how cute are those leopard nails?! Sally Hansen right? I really need to get on that bandwagon, for real.

    So I forgot where we left things off (lol). You know what? You guys should totally come over for dinner one day! Unless, of course, Astoria is going to be a little too inconvenient for you and the bf to get to? If so, I’m totally down for doing an eat-out thing too.
