I stumbled on an amazing new blog - My Sister's Suitcase. I love the crafts they've done so far and see this as a top blog I follow!
They made these awesome yarn letters for Valentine's Day. I have a ton of yarn in the garage - the benefit of having a sister that crochets like crazy and gives me most of her left over yarn from her finished projects. So I dug around for a while and found 3 colors that would give this Ombre effect - red, fuschia, and light pink.
I had trouble with the "O" since it was curved and not straight like the others. I'm still not happy that the yarn lines aren't all horizontal. Believe me, I tried, but had too many issues, so I just ended up doing it in the round way like the example. I love how they turned out and am excited to have a larger decoration. Most of my Valentine's Day stuff is small, and stacked the way this is, it's about 16 inches tall.
