Yoyo Crafting Idea...

As some of you know, I LUV Yoyos...and use them to embellish nearly everything I craft! Well my dear neighbor, Andrea,,, always passes on her crafting magazine to me,,,to enjoy and then I pass them on,,,but in this case, I didn't pass on this issue of "Create & Decorate" because of the cute idea for a towel holder. A Pineapple, the Hawaiian symbol for Hospitality, made up of Yoyos..Cute!
I used felt for the base to which I added the yoyos by stitching on and sewed buttons onto each yoyo. Then I attached the metal ring (macrame' ring) & a little plastic ring on the backside ( for hanging the towel holder)... add a wooden spoon, a towel, tie on a bit of frayed burlap & Voila! instant cute towel holder.

The magazine used felt for the yoyos but I found them to be to bulky for my liking and choose to use a sweet yellow print fabric. Click on the photo for a closer look.


  1. That is adorable Grace! We used to live in Hawaii and I love that the pineapple is the symbol for hospitality.

  2. Which month was that idea in? That is a tuck in I could make for my Aloha partner. You did a great job, it looks so cute.


I love hearing from you....
