DIY: Christmas tree yo-yo garland

I love fabric yo-yos.  I’ve made them for years and I use them to make table covers and decorative throws.  I decided to use all my older yo-yos to make a garland for my Christmas tree, and I finally got it done tonight.

Here are a few of the individual yo-yos I used.

A foot of fabric fun!I’m putting my tree up on Thursday so that it will be ready and beautiful for the “Transplant to Seattle” Thanksgiving that I’m hosting on Saturday.  Stay tuned for pictures!
