Yoyo Wreath Tutorial


Hello friends!
A quick and easy tutorial to share with you today for a yoyo wreath.


For this wreath I cut 7, 4 & 1/4 inch circles of fabric. 
I then sewed them into yoyos.
The fabric I used is called Bliss by Moda.
If you have never made a yoyo before, you can see a great tutorial for them here.


I then cut a 4 & 1/2 inch circle out of cardboard for the wreath base.
Then cut a smaller hole in the center.


Glue the yoyos to the cardboard slightly overlapping each yoyo.


Tie a bow with ribbon leaving it long enough to be the hanger.
Then tie a knot with twine over the bow. Slide a mini bell which can be found at major craft stores, to the center and tie another bow with the twine. 


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey
