Turn any plain backpack into a pom-pom backpack!!
Are you at all surprised I would cover a backpack in pom-poms? I love this project involving one of my favorite craft supplies, but I can’t take credit for the idea. It was all Stella’s! I had asked her what type of crafts I should make for back-to-school and she said. “You should make a pom-pom backpack!” Pure genius. 😉
It didn’t take much to make her vision a reality. Read on to see how easy it is to turn any plain backpack into a pom-pom backpack!

How to Make a Pom Pom Backpack

1. I used the pom-poms to cover the two big pockets on the front of my backpack. I chose a variety of sizes and a neon color palette to keep the look cohesive. I worked on covering one pocket at a time by scattering the pom-poms on the front in a random fashion to get the general look I was going for.

2. Then I picked up each pom-pom, added a dab of hot glue to the back of it, and stuck it in place on the backpack. I worked my way around the pocket until I had glued down all the pom-poms and then used extra pom-poms to fill in any gaps.

Note: I had initially planned to use fabric glue, but found that the hot glue gun did a better job of securing the pom-poms in place quickly so they didn’t shift around.

You could go nuts and cover the entire backpack if you want, but I like the look of having just the two pockets covered.
