A few more ornaments were added to our Christmas tree today. The house is slowly gaining it's holiday finery. I wanted to share this little yo-yo wreath made by my mother. I have two of them now. One that she made for my first Christmas tree, and one that had been on my parent's tree for many Christmases.
She cut 3 inch circles, stitched around the edge and then filled them with a little fiberfill batting as she pulled the thread to make yo-yo's. A dozen yo-yo's threaded together through their centers and tied into a wreath, plus a tiny red bow - so simple!
The navy print is from a skirt and camisole Mom made for me in the 1970's -ruffles, lace and 'prairie style.' Such sweet memories these little ornaments can bring! What are some of your favorite handmade Christmas ornaments?
