30 Days of Beauty-15

I bought this yoyo runner at an antique shop (it's not an antique, but the owner did hand make it) a couple years ago. It's 8 yoyos by 22 yoyos-so that's 176 yoyos for 20 dollars. Yoyos are not easy or quick to make-so paying 20 dollars was well worth it.

It's a beautiful thing!

I like - very much! Where do you display this? Now you need to explain to me how you make a yoyo :)

I love making yoyos. I got my daughter hooked on making these as well. Now we have a basketful and no idea what to do with them all.

Sharon-I've only made a handful and I remember it being hard. But from what Melissa and Jodi are saying maybe I should try again. And honestly-I can't remember exactly how to do it. If you google yoyo tutorial-I'll bet you'd find a good one!

And I don't display it as nicely as I should. It sits atop the entertainment center and you can't see it very good. But it does help hide dust-and there's a lot to hide!

Melissa-hope you are feeling better!

Jodi-How about stitching them together and making a runner!
