Christmas Tree Ornament

Who doesn't like making yo-yos? I love em.  They're so cute in any craft project.  I have made yo-yo doilies, yo-yo covered quilts, a yo-yo vest, even a yo-yo ornament. it's so cute and it could not be easier to make.  This is a true beginner ornament.  Just make and string together seven or eight different sized yo-yos on a strong thread like pearl cotton, I usually start with a bead for a trunk and finish with a button and a small painted wooden star.  Knot it off and leave some thread for a hanger. That's all there is to it.  I started out with a few rows of 3" finished width yo-yos and decreased a 1/2 inch or so every two yo-yos made.
This post is lined up to the Virtual Christmas Ornament Swap HERE!


  1. Oh that is cute ! Have a good day !

  2. I liked your other ones but this one is my favorite. Your right about yo-yos. Thank you for sharing this.
    Merry Christmas

  3. I'm probably the only Farmgirl in the country who has never made yo-yos! LOL!! Your little tree is so cute it inspires me to start! :)

  4. Country Gal, Dicky Bird, and Kathleen,
    Thank you all for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love yo-yos and fast and easy crafts. I am always on the look out for new ones.

  5. Candy,
    I am sure there are many other yo-yo free farmgirls. lol. I do hope you get a chance to make some, they're so cute and easy. They can be sewn together into so many nice home embellishments. One thing I really like about them is that I can sit back, watch my favorite show and whip up a bag full in no time.
