Today, Ilyse, Lily and Lauren from the Revel Art Collective, stopped by the Hayes Valley Farm to show us how to make Yarn Succulent Pockets. Lily's drawing of a party tree it above. At the April 16th SF Refresh, Lily and Lauren will be teaching a skill share on how to make Yarn Succulent Pockets starting at 11am.
For now, enjoy these DIY (do it yourself) instructions:
Step One: knit, crochet, or use your fingers to make a pocket out of yarn.
Step Two: create an outline of a tree on the fence with yarn.
Step three: attach your yarn pocket to the fence. You can also attach succulant pockets made out of burlap and chicken wire as well. This makes for a good brown tree color.
Step Four: Fill the pocket with dirt and plant a succulent.
Step Five: Repeat until you've filled the outline of your tree. We need help with this step. Come by on Saturday and help us fill it in. Or make a pocket to take home.
