Artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera decided to take matters into her own hands and fix some potholes in Paris. With colorful yarn.

There’s been a lot of yarn bombing going on lately. I really like the idea of putting something man-made, or woops woman- made onto an inanimate object or tree. I like the mix of it, the tree becomes something sacred when we adorn it…think about a Christmas tree. Well it is Spring but it’s still chilly in the evenings, so my tree has a sacred sweater to keep it warm. What makes it sacred? My love in making it.
