Yo-yos and buttons applied to foam with bead-headed pins make a lovely accent for your holiday decor. Top it off with a ribbon for a festive little tree.

A glass candleholder is used for the base in this example, however there are many other things that will work. You’ll find a lot of ideas around the house and in thrift shops.

Charming Yo-yo Tree Tutorial

Choose a variety of green fabrics, or mix it up. A selection of off-white fabrics will create an elegant tree while green and red will be bright and festive.

The instructions are for a tree that is 9″ tall (without the base). However, you can make yours larger or smaller depending on the foam cone you choose.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
