    I like that idea. Actually just the yoyo by itself with a button and maybe a sequin would make a cute ornament.

    I have made bells using yo yo's in different sizes and putting a christmas bell on the bottom one, with some file folder
    circle in the bottom one for stablility, and a ribbon on top for the loop; you can make Christmas trees two doing the
    same thing with different greens for the top part and a gold start sewed on top with ribbon loop. I love homemade
    christmas ornaments, I don't have many balls on my christmas tree. Our guild had ornament exchange several
    years and many of those are gone now, love the memories.

    Last year our family of four boys and spouses and girlfriends ages 14-29 painted blank ornaments from Hobby Lobby with acrylic paints we had left over from various projects over the years. Everyone had a great time and we came up with a few masterpieces, everything from traditional Christmas trees, landscapes, geometric shapes, and caricatures. The fun time spent together was even better than the keepsakes.

    Do you want them made only from fabric or do you work in other mediums as well? Such as polymer clay, and other craft objects?
    I've been making ornaments since 1977 for my kids, and now grandkids. My DD loved them as for years her tree as a young adult was with the ornaments I had made her. This year they have a 9 foot tree, so they may have to buy a few. lol

    I'll be watching this thread as well to learn more. When I find my pics I'll share a few.

    Years ago I used lollipop molds and plaster of paris to make ornaments...We painted them and then sprayed them with clear spray paint...After putting the plaster in the mold insert the string or ribbon you are using for a hanger before it hardens.

    Are you talking about using a styrofoam ball, pressing the fabric into the ball, and it looks quilted?

Hummmm, I have no idea where to even tell you where the instructions for it are. Anyone else know what I am talking about?

    I have compiled a list of quilted Xmas ornaments but it's too large to post here (see signature for link). I found a lot of them. I'll be making a few this year.... here is my personal to do list...

    http://modestmaven.blogspot.com/2009...-tutorial.html (made these last year and they were great! I added wings to mine)
    http://patchpieces.com/sharingpatch.html - the star heart one is on my to do list.

    There are oodles of them online for free and even more if you want to pay for a pattern.
