yo-yo christmas ornaments

By Hatun Comak Sunday, December 23, 2018

Yo-yos are quick to make and perfect to use for a variety of things including embellishment of quilts or diy ornaments. Here I used yo-yos to make some christmas ornaments, which includes a snowman and a tree.

These ornaments were fun to make. I am sure you will enjoy yourself making these. You can use these christmas ornaments for your tree or give them away as gifts. Below is the materials you will need and a tutorial to make the yoyo snowman ornament.

For snowman ornament you will need:

  • Scraps of white fabric for snowman.
  • Scraps of fabric for the hat and the scarf.
  • Small black beads or buttons

From the white fabric cut two circles, one is 4" and the other is 3.5".

Make your two yo-yos. If you are new to yo-yos making, have a look at my tutorial to make yo-yos HERE

Make the hat:
Fold 4"x2.5" rectangular in half, meeting shorter edges. Sew along these edges, backstitching at begining and end.

Press seams open and turn right side out.
Turn one raw edge up to 1/4". And turn up 1/4" again to make the hat brim.
To match the hat fabric and gather the remaining raw edge sew along the hat and then pull gathers tight and tie off.

Stitch together the small and bigger yo-yos together and then add the hat.

Tie scarf around snowman's neck. I used a red fabric. It is 1" wide.

For the eyes and mouth you can use small black beads or you can make some embroidery work. I preferred embroidery for eyes and mouth. For the nose I used a tiny yoyo which is filled inside with fiber.

Now time to add some ribbon or twine to make an ornament. Or you can glue it on a bambu stick.
