Handmade Christmas Tree #2

Yo- Yo Ornaments!

This go together SUPER fast and they are adorable!

If you know how to make a yo-yo then this will be really easy for you... if you don't know how to make a yo-yo, then this will be really easy for you :-)

Here is a video on making yo-yo's if you don't... They talk quite a bit, but it was the best one that I could find.

Before gathering your yo-yo, insert a glass (or plastic I suppose) ornament into the center. Gather the yo-yo at the top of the ornament and you're done! Each one of these took less than 2 minutes to finish.

I used a 2 3/8 inch glass ornament and cut a 9 inch circle for the yo-yo. I did the finished edge mentioned in the video, but you could do a raw edge depending on what you're doing to the ornament once it's finished.

Like I said, quick and gorgeous! Good luck with these beauties and happy crafting!

They are sooooo easy to make and really help fill up the tree with a handmade look! You can get all the glass ornaments you could ever want 50% off at Hobby Lobby most weeks.

Also, I was able to get 6 ornaments out of a fat quarter. Makes it a lot easier to grab-n-go with those pre-cut fabrics!
