THIS TREE IS BEING YARN BOMBED WITH A BASIC KNITTED TEXTILE. THE POLAROID PHOTOGRAPHY HIGHLIGHTS THE COLOURS & TEXTURES BEAUTIFULLY.
YARN BOMBING A TREE IS FUN & YOU DON’T EVEN NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CROCHET OR KNIT, BECAUSE YOU CAN USE DOILIES.
IF YOU DO LIKE TO CROCHET OR KNIT BUT YOU ARE SICK OF MAKING BOOTIES & SCARVES THEN WHY NOT TRY YARN BOMBING, IT’S A FRIENDLY FORM OF STREET ART OR SHOULD I SAY STREET CRAFT FOR RENEGADE NANAS.
You can yarn bomb with crochet with knitting, old blankets or jumpers. As long as it’s colourful and fun and done with care yarn bombing will spice up and warm up any neighbourhood.It doesn’t have to cost a lot to knit a tree warmer if you use vintage wool from the thrift store or even an old unpicked jumper.Is this tree up for lease? I’ll take it.Anybody can take a crack at yarn bombing including girls & boys, kids & grownups alike.It’s fun to knit craft & sew & it’s always nice to snap a colourful photograph when it’s done.
The craft of yarn bombing can take you on interesting journeys.
This yarn bombed bike has appeared in this blog before, but last time we saw it the wheels were on the ground. After this bike had a rocky life in a street art exhibition, survived stolen & returned wheels & stormy weather it has finally found a home in a palm tree. Below is a flashback of pictures from the past life of this plucky little yarn bombed bike.
When the bike was freshly yarn bombed and the yarn was bright & new.
Spotted on display on the caffe strip on Rundle st Adelaide South Australia.
After the wheels were stolen this impassioned message was left with the bike & as a result the wheels were returned although they were quite shabby. The palm tree that suspends this bike is going to be completely covered with yarn bombing so keep your eyes on this space for more photos in the future.
This bike was yarn bombed by my mates at craft club, Sarah-Jane cook, Nunya glazbrook, Branwen Davies, Maureen Cook, Melissa Waters & Me Ilianthe Kalloniatis. Special thanks goes to Nunyas mum for suggesting the wheel spoke design, which was inspired by the bike decorating competition at the Minlaton show when she was a kid.
This yarn bombed street sign is brilliant but I wonder how long it took for the city council to remove it.
This yarn bomb has been on a tree in a suburban street near me for about six months, some kids have moved it up & down the branch but otherwise it remains intact.
This lovely yarn bombed pole was at the edge of a park in my suburb. It stayed for a few weeks until someone shimmied it up the pole & peeled it off.
