Tiered Display Piece Found Art Yarn Bomb

So it's nearing another bulk pick-up in the neighborhood. Perfect time to go looking for good junk for found art pieces. I picked up 3 pieces, and hopefully they'll all amount to something.

First, I found this 4-tier display piece made of particle board and wood legs.

The plan is to wrap each tier in crochet lace, then wrap the legs with loose yarn.

It will be placed in the library on FIU's Biscayne Bay campus.

FIU Biscayne Bay Campus Yarn Bomb Update

Tried out the longest of the pole cozies on one of the posts today. It looks pretty great. Only a foot left to go!

FIU Biscayne Bay Campus Yarn Bomb

The plan is to cover the four yellow concrete guard poles around the parking meter machine in 4 different yarn cozies. I'm using my grandmother's stash yarn for this, because it's all sturdy acrylic that could last a few days outside if no one removes it sooner.

The poles are each 7 inches in diameter and about 3.5 feet tall.

Three of the cozies are in progress, and this is what they look like so far:
