Oak Tree Crochet Yarn Bomb

When the pandemic started, I was determined to bring some happiness outdoors. I also had a lot of acrylic yarn I was trying to use up, and this seemed like a good use for it.

I started out with a general plan, but the yarn bomb I imagined was a lot bigger than this one. The tree trunk was larger than I thought, and I ran out of bright-colored yarn pretty quickly. (I learned from my last yarn bomb that darker colors are not great for yarn bombs, so I didn't use any at all.)

Every now and then I see people walk by and point at the tree. They smile, and I smile. The yarn bomb is also a great landmark for giving directions to our house.

This photo was taken when I first put the yarn bomb up in the spring, and since then it has faded and stretched out quite a bit. I've performed maintenance on it since this, but it still makes me smile when I pull into the driveway.
