    Here are some YoYos that I made into ornaments using the mini ornaments you can buy at Joann Fabrics. They usually have 12 minis to a cardboard package for under $2.

    I used 5" circles. The nice thing about the ornaments is they come with their hanging string already attached so I don't have to worry about attaching anything the the YoYo except the ornament. They work up so fast with the glue gum and lots of cute fabric scaps in holiday patterns.

    I made 400 of them and donated them to one of the schools in my district so they little children can sell them at their craft sale around the holidays. I have 200 more made and once I have a total of 500 more I will take them over as well. Got a great deal after the holidays last year on the minis.

    No stuffing inside but you could if you want them to be puffier. They look so cute on a small table tree as they are mini enough and light weight enough to not overwhelm the small tree.

    I made some for my elderly neighbor's tree and she loved them so much I had to make more for her lady friends.
