WELCOME Aboard "Yarn Bombers"!
CIANFRANI PARK PROJECT in March 2021!
YARN BOMBING IDEAS FROM THE CIANFRANI PARK PROJECT:
CIRCLES: 13-inch to 6-inch diameter circles to wrap 4 lamp posts, 4 feet long – no more than 13 inches at the widest. Best to be crocheted. Don't stitch them together! We'll do that after we've collected everyone's pieces.
Rows of SEVEN 10 x10 inch squares stitched together horizontally OR it can be
one long piece 70 wide x 10 inches high. If it's longer or shorter, don't worry
about it. Use your imagination on
the designs (spring-like, nothing political plz). They will be hung from the
double railing that frames the park. The 10” height of your pieces will fit
between the railings. We’ll simply weave them onto the top railing to hang
POMS POMS: Tons of pompoms. We’re going to attach them to long wooden skewers and stick them into the ground so that they look like allium flowers. Get the kids involved!! Feel free to be creative!
FLOWERS, LEAVES, BUTTERFLIES, BIRDS: 5ish-inches in diameter minimum. They will be attached to 4 posts that are arranged in a pyramid fashion in the middle of the park. We will provide 4 long crocheted green vines for your flowers, butterflies, and birds to be attached to. So we need lots of them!
Here are some helpful ideas:

Crochet: EXTRA SIMPLE idea - use super bulky yarn or double yarn, chain (100), wrap the chain around your four fingers or on a 5-inch wide card, tie the loops together in the middle, and sew a buttons in the middle on both sides! It's kind of like making pompoms.

EXTRA SIMPLE FOR CROCHET OR KNIT - Stitch 2 rectangles, maybe 4 X 2 inches, chain 8 or knit double-yarn cord to wrap around the center, leaving the two ends loose as antenna!
Or, use double yarn, chain (16), slip stitch to make into a circle, make two of these (chain 18 for the second one), then wrap the circles in the middle with black yarn (chain 8), leaving two ends to look like the butterfly's antennas!
