Yoyo Christmas Tree Done

yoyo christmas tree

Remember the cute Christmas tree I found at Kiwi at Heart?
Well, I finally made my own.
A little wonky, but still cute!

I used some seed beads and wire to make my star.

And some buttons for the “pot” instead of a cotton reel.
I also created a little present for those of you
who can’t be bothered drawing the circles.
You can download this PDF template of the 7 smaller circles.
If you make one, send me a picture – I’d love to see!

    I meant to tell you earlier, this is so cute!!! I'm working on mine, I'll share and link to this post when I get it done. I just love the idea:) My kiddo got sick and has been wanting me to sit on the couch and hold her all day long. That's been seriously impairing my crafting time! She's on the mend now but now I have all the housework to catch up on. Hope to get it done this weekend:)

  23. Oh, that is really cute!!
    I love it!
