Yarn Bombing Without Knitting

I have always associated yarn bombing with knitting or crocheting. It looked like fun but since I don’t knit or crochet, I never tried it. At my felting retreat this past weekend, Jan showed us how to do a wrapped key chain and I suddenly realized that I didn’t need to know how to knit to yarn bomb.

So we found a nice tree stump by the lodge and wrapped and embellished the tree to our heart’s content. We just used a variety of yarns, roving and a few pine cones. If you haven’t tried it, you should. It was great fun.

About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to β€œplay” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

  1. Here’s another way…. just throw balls of yarn up into the branches over and over again! Here is a pic of my backyard called “Yarnopolis.” http://www.flickr.com/photos/summerset/7752782488/ It has survived a very rainy season and hot weather without fading and only a little sagging.

      Terri – that’s a great idea. I love your tree. Ours was just a stump so it wouldn’t have worked well but a good thought for next time.

    I tried really hard to concentrate on the tree but my attention was taken by the surroundings – what a fantastic place! You lucky thing.
