Here’s a great way to update that old beanie hat this winter!
Its a simple tutorial on adding a faux fur pom pom I found on Honestly WTF blog.

A finished example


Gather Supplies:
a beanie
a faux fur or handmade yarn pom pom
embroidery thread
embroidery needle
scissors

Step 1: Thread the needle with about 25 inches of embroidery thread. Double knot the end of the thread.

Step 2: Find the center of the pom pom and pierce the needle through it. Push the needle through the top of the beanie and pull the thread tight.

Step 3: Pull the needle back through the top of the beanie and thread the needle through the pom pom in the same spot.

Step 4: Push the needle back through the beanie. Stitch through the beanie in the inside, going back and forth a few times.

Step 5: Tie a double or triple knot to secure the thread.

All done!!
