These are yoyo trees that i did in no less than 20 minutes. Very easy and fun to do.
The yoyos are different sizes and then i just added pompoms in between.

With these you can even put buttons in between each layer.
The possibilities are endless! you would not believe. I got this idea from shopping at some old country stores this weekend. They had yoyo wreaths, mini yoyo wreaths, yoyo angels, garlands, individual yoyo ornaments embellished with beads or anything you can find. Candy canes featured below..

very different from what i was expecting...a yoyo is a round toy on a string...these look more like slinkys to me? is it just a matter of local terminology?
