Festival of Trees Wreath

Yarn-Bombed-Wreath

Every year the Yukon Hospital Foundation runs a Festival of Trees at the end of November as a fundraiser.  Local businesses and organizations decorate trees and wreaths to be displayed at a set of community events and then to be auctioned off to raise funds for the charity.  This year they asked Yarn Bomb Yukon if we would create a wreath for the event.

We opted to forego our usual bright and flashy colour palette in favour of something more aligned with the season – white.  We created a white crocheted wreath with a handmade bow.

If you haven’t had a chance to see the wreaths and trees in person, and you don’t already have a ticket to Friday’s sold out Senior’s Soiree and  Saturday’s sold out Grand Ball, you have one more chance tonight at the free Multicultural Community Open House.  Here are the details:

At the Multicultural Community Open House enjoy food, music and dance, view the beautifully decorated trees and visit the kids’ corner for crafts and fun!
