It's so easy it barely requires instructions, but it's always nice to have measurements instead of messing around figuring them out yourself.
- 1 yo-yo (yo-yo making instructions) - I started with a 5" circle to end up with a 2.5" yo-yo
- 3 5.25" lengths of 3/8" wide ribbon
- 6" of 1/8" ribbon
- 1 20mm rhinestone
- Needle and thread
- Scissors and pen
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Make a yo-yo and assemble materials.
Step 2: Create your first loop with one of the 5.25" ribbons. Each loop should be about 1/4" smaller than the yo-yo. Since this yo-yo was 2.5", the ribbon loops are 2.25" when folded. The ends of the ribbon are the back of the loop. Leave a tail of thread for knotting later. This photo is just to show how the ribbon is folded and sewn; the actual loop should be pulled tight.
You can also loop your ribbon this way instead:
Step 3: Create your second loop and anchor it to the first.
Step 4: Add the last loop.
Step 5: Use the 1/8" ribbon to create a loop from which to hang the ornament. Stitch it to the back of the loops and knot your thread.
Step 6: Hot glue everything together. I'm not talented enough to photograph while working with quick-setting glue, so I don't have pictures of this. Add glue to just the center of the back of your ribbon loops and attach it to the center of the yo-yo. Then add glue to the back of the rhinestone and attach to the center of the ribbon loops. Ta-da! You're done.
