These Quick Ornaments are Fun and Festive for the Holidays!
Double yo-yos in striped red and white fabric make striking ornaments for your tree. The finished ornaments, reminiscent of peppermint lollipops, also make wonderful gifts and will be fun as gift toppers.
These ornaments are super easy to make. A bit of sewing and some gluing are all it takes. You can finish several in just a few hours.
Red and white stripes are perfect for the peppermint look. Or, choose a variety of striped fabrics for a colorful display on your tree.
Besides the striped fabric you’ll need pretty matching ribbon, buttons, lollipop sticks from the craft store, cord for hanging and posterboard.
The fabric is cut on the bias into 3″ x 7 1/2″ strips. A 2 1/4″ circle of posterboard gives the double yo-yos structure.
Watch the video below for the complete instructions.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
