Charming Yo yo earrings tutorial

 

Let’s make a pair together, shall we.
Materials:

 

Two 1.5 inch diameter yo yo’s

 

Two 8-10mm jump rings

 

Two earring attachments {available at your local craft store}

 

Pliers

 

Needle and thread
In my family, we have a Yo Yo quilt that has been passed down for 4 generations. It is made with vintage fabric, and it makes my heart swoon. The only problem, it has begun to tatter and fall apart. And the girls in our family have been trying to find alternate uses for the classic yo yo’s. So I very carefully used a seam ripper to remove a handful of yo yo’s from the outer edge of my blanket–to use on this vintage project.

And now, for the tutorial:

 

 

1. Use your pliers to connect the jump ring and the earring.

 

2. Thread your needle, tie a knot at the end, and pull the needle through the back side of your yo yo, in the spot you want your warring to dangle.

 

3. Now, sew the jump ring into place. I looped the thread around the jump ring about 10 times so that it was secure.

 

4. Complete the same steps on the second yo yo, and that’s it.

 

Crazy easy, right!
