Yo-Yo Shamrock Ornaments

Hi everyone! Tonight I'm joining Chari for Sunday Favorites with what was my 3rd post of all time! I started blogging last March and joined Kathleen's St. Patrick's Day Yearly Blog Crawl:@)
*  *  *
I'm happy to be joining Cuisine Kathleen for her blog crawl! (While I've been on my share of pub crawls... this is a first!)

I'm sharing ornaments I made for my feather tree, they started out as yo-yo's 
and I shaped them into shamrocks.
Updated-I've been asked how to make them: I started with a round yo-yo and just ran string up through the center, looped it around the outer edge and back into the center, then pulled it a little snug. I did that in three spots to make the three petals of the clover. Once you do it you'll see:@)

It's a good use for scraps of material and they look great on the tree!
Have a happy day!

  3. These are so neat. I really like them. They could easily be napkin rings or coaster or ...? They will be PERFECT for Kathleen's crawl. Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  30. Hi Lynn...

    Welcome to the Sunday Favorites repost party, my friend! I'm just tickled to have you join in with the fun! What a great post to reshare with us! I love your shamrock "yoyo's"...what a great idea! As popular as these tiny little yoyo's are...I don't think that I've ever made one myself...although I have seen them made. What a fun and neat craft idea for St. Patricks Day!

    Have a wonderful week, dear lady! Sure hope that you'll join in with the Sunday Favorites party again!

  31. Oh how cute! I'm doing a St Patricks Day blog round up for any and all GREEN blog party and shamrock fun and I will definitely have to include this in the links. They are so cute! :) And I LOVED that cute little chicky by your cute country kitchen ceramic rooster! Very adorable - you should be sure to share that for Barb's "Show Me Your Roosters" blog party this summer. Very adorable combo. :)

    I also wanted to say thank you again for the great cupcake corer and all the other delightful goodies that arrived to put a HUGE smile on this Sandwich Generation granny nanny face. What a treat! Perfect for whipping up surprise cupcakes with the grandkids! Thank you so much. :) Have a blessed week!
