What do you do when you have an ample stash of yarn, gorgeously colored leathers and a pom pom maker? You make Leather Pom Pom Bookmarks, of course! Today I am thrilled to share with you all, this fun and simple DIY that you can make in under an hour. Yes, I timed it.

OH! I love my pom pom maker. I know there are a handful of very simple pom pom making techniques using a piece of cardboard or maybe a fork. And those are great ways, but once you’ve zipped through making a pom pom with an actual pom pom maker, you just don’t realize how simple it really can be.
You can find the simple directions for making a pom pom here. Once you have your pom poms made, it’s time for the next step!
Note : I wrapped multiple colors of yarn on each pom pom to create a fun patterned look.
Then, using my Rotary Hole punch, I punched a simple hole in my leather for stringing the pom pom through.
The end result were these simple but gorgeous pom pom leather bookmarks!
I loved how big the pom poms were in proportion to the leather bookmark. I loved how dramatic they are popping out of the tops of our books!
And the leather I found from Etsy is so very soft, so I find myself just holding the bookmark while I read.
