Some people collect Santa’s, some collect snowmen, and I collect Christmas Trees. I like collecting the trees I think because trees have always been so inspiring to me. You’ll even often find them in quilts I make. Last year my mother-in-law made me a super cool Christmas Tree out of fabric yo-yo’s for my collection. If you set it just right it can stand up … but it’s pretty fun when it’s droopy like this. She also made smaller versions of the yo-yo trees for ornaments for my daughters and they also make me smile!
These fun decorations are great ways to use up some of those fabric scraps! And yo-yo’s are great to make “on the go” if you’re looking for some handwork.
