If you haven't seen or heard of yarn bombing before it is truly brilliant and each time I get a glimpse of it online or outside, it instantly makes me smile. I wish more places indulged in it as it's a great way to get communities involved in a project, whilst bringing colour and character to an area.
This year The Seaton's Seasonal Secrets Group created hundreds of adorable and colourful creations which are hanging all over Seaton, from benches to fences, and as soon as I saw them when I went to post a letter a few weeks ago I had to get some photos to share with you all, especially as this is the first time I've ever come across yarn bombing in real life.
This might be my favourite element - a yarn Christmas tree complete with decorations! The stockings are my favourite.
I really liked the way the group included everyday inanimate objects and turned them into cute and colourful things.
If only the world looked like this 24/7!
Usually these metal bars don't call for much attention, other than serving as a place to rest bikes and where most of the dog owners secure their dogs while they're in the shops, but covered in their new yarn attire they looked very sweet.
I loved this bunting, which was stretched across several areas, but with the little yarn bells beneath them they looked really sweet here.
The metal bike riders on the bridge here were given jumpers and hats! The red and white one with the green bobble was my favourite; perfectly festive colours.
And they even created something colourful for the bin!
This was all done as part of the annual Christmas lights switch on (which I missed) and apparently the group were also selling some of the yarn creations on the day, so if they do this again next year I'll have to get it into my calendar as I was sad to find out I'd missed the switching on but sometimes life gets in the way.
Has your local area ever gotten involved in something like this, or has there ever been any yarn bombing near you?
I'm linking up with Jen for Photo Friday today.
Have a lovely weekend all!
