The Thrifty Style Team is having a fall home decor giveaway, and I’m giving away a handmade fabric yo-yo garland!
Hello everyone! We are in the midst of hurricane preparations here in South Carolina but I thought I’d take a break and let you know about the fantastic fall home decor giveaway that the Thrifty Style Team is having.
Each team member is giving away a handmade item so you have a chance to win something on each of the blogs.
What is a fabric yo-yo garland?
Well, when you hear the word yo-yo, you tend to think about the toy by that name, but fabric yo-yos are a totally different thing.
Fabric yo-yos are little poufy circles of fabric that can be used in a variety of ways. If you’d like to make some of your own, here is my tutorial on how to make them: Steps in Making Fun Fabric Yo-Yos
Traditionally, yo-yos were used in making quilts, but nowadays they can be used to decorate pillows, curtains, and a lot of different things.
I used some binding tape that I had on hand and simply hot-glued the yo-yos onto the tape.
Then I attached some buttons in the center of each yo-yo.
I realize that most of you don’t have a grapevine tree to add the garland to, but you could use it to decorate a mantel or you could pull the yo-yos off the binding tape and hot-glue them onto a pillow.
Or, if you do a search on Pinterest, you’ll get lots of ideas for using yo-yos.
