See how the team at Little creates their own unique Valentine's Day Cards

Ella, Little's Team Lead, is a weaver, so a Valentine DIY made from different kinds of yarn seems natural. Check out what she made!

Pom Pom Valentines

I was so excited to find out about this project! I loved handing out valentines to all my classmates in school, + the idea of doing it again as an adult was really fun. For my valentines, I knew I wanted to make something a little different. I had been looking for an excuse to try out pompom making with the Loome, so the situation couldn't have been more perfect.​

My first step was gathering a variety of yarns in shades of pink + white. I chose some chunky wool, a super fuzzy mohair, + even a little bit of silk. I played around with different yarn combinations on my pompom tool. My favorite pompoms came from wrapping very different yarns together. I shaped a few into traditional round pompoms, attempted a heart, + then realized I love the look of the pompoms pre-haircut. Each one is unique! There are great video tutorials on the Loome's website, so I'll spare you from an in-depth how to. One important step, however, was leaving the string holding everything together about 6" long.

The next step was coming up with puns! I wrote things like "wool you be mine?" + "I've goat your back" on cute gift tags. I tied the gift tags to the long pompom strings + my valentines were done!
This project can be as simple or as complex as you want to make it. For me, it was quick, easy, and fun!
