Well actually it hangs on a hook but that's semantics. I hope this is the right forum to post this project in. Please, someone tell me if I ought to have put it elsewhere.

Anyway, here is a wall-hanging I've been working on for several months of a tree made of yo-yos, buttons, and beads.

Over 60 yo-yos of different sizes make up the canopy of the tree. I used the extra small, small, large, extra large, and jumbo round yo-yo makers by Clover. For that extra touch of summer sunshine I stitched on beads and buttons amongst the yo-yos.


I stitched the brown cotton tree trunk down to the pre-quilted foundation using embroidery. I really like the texture.

Tonight I finished the final touch of whimsy by adding butterfly beads to the flower garden growing at the base of the tree. If you look carefully you can also see my signature frog bead which I add to my wall hangings.


Hope you enjoy my yo-yo tree! Comments and criticisms are appreciated. Smiley
