Yarn (wool) bombs in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Have you heard of yarn or wool bombs? A sort of colourful graffiti/street art done ( usually secretly at night) around objects (or trees) in the streets. These are in Buenos Aires, aren't they cool? Do you have yarn bombs in your city?

  1. We have yarn bombs here in Nelson too - I love them - they always make me smile :-)

  2. Well Sue, Nelson seems to be the perfect place for them, so many crafty people there!

  3. Incredibili questi lavoro a maglia!! Li ho visti fare anche in islanda su oggetti vari :-) Bacioni

  4. Here in Milano none yarn bombs but another way to give colour to the city. It’s a different kind of guerrilla gardening called “piante volanti” or “abbracciapalo”. Easy to do, you just have to prepare some like tin cans filled with composted soil and a vigorous flower. Hang on a light pole along the street and that’s it! It’s nice to see some flowers around the city placed where you don’t expect it, looks up and enjoy it! :-)

  5. That is so cool Ginandtonic, I hope to see some next time I'll visit Milan!
