There’s a new graffiti in town.
It may not be as vandalistic or permanent as paint, but it sends a message nonetheless.
It’s more than “I was here.”
It’s more altruistic than a tag.
What am I talking about?
It’s not about ego.
It’s not about glory.
It’s about passing on the relentless spirit of creativity.
Especially in a city where grey concrete reigns supreme, a pop of creative color will brighten someone’s day, encourage their mind to think of blue skies and glorious sunsets, and maybe even create a ripple effect that makes the world a better place.
Yarn bombing isn’t just for those skilled with hook or needle. YOU can do it with your own bare hands and a skein (or two… or three… or four) of lovely yarn. Just simply yarn wrap a pole and spread some creative cheer.
Need some Yarn Bombing guidelines? This article answers a few good questions: Is it trespassing? Is it vandalism? Perhaps not if you attach your art in a non-permanent way on public property.

Keep creating dear readers!

I love the horse with the leg warmers! That’s my type of yarn bombing. I love when people put apparel on statues. 🙂
I agree! I love that one too because it’s kinda Casper cowboy gone hipster:)
