Yo-Yo Tree

These are so simple to make yet make such a pretty statement.

I took a small vintage tart mold and attached a vintage spool of thread.

I used a pretty lime green. I then stuck a dowel inside the spool with hot glue.

Create different sized yo-yo's. Slide over the dowel. Now add some feathers or a small star or a jewel to the top and don't forget to pretty up the bottom.

Create 1 or many. Create some with your kids. They'll love it!

~~Happy Holidays~~
