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.
