DIY Yoyo Wreath with Yoyo Flowers

How to Make a Yoyo Wreath

Create a fun and colorful DIY yoyo wreath by making quick and easy flowers with fabric yoyos and knitted rounds.

These days the only thrifting I’m doing is from my own stashes, which is actually a lot of fun.

I’ve discovered that I have a lot of cool things that I’ve completely forgotten about.

I have to admit that it feels pretty awesome to be using some things that have been waiting for their day in the project sun for what seems like forever.

Like these fabric yoyos and knitted rounds.

Both are from damaged homemade dolls that I found at thrift stores a few years ago.

I took the dolls apart and the yoyos and rounds were put away in my craft room never to be seen again.

Except for this vintage light reflector flowers project, where I used some of the knitted rounds.

These days are all about using what I have.

So I decided to create a quick and easy diy yoyo wreath by combining these yoyos and rounds.

Attaching Yoyos to Wreath Frame

I found this mdf frame in my stash and because it’s flat it’s perfect for this project.

If you don’t have an mdf or wooden frame you could easily make one out of regular cardboard.

This project would also work with a round wreath frame, but I didn’t have one.

The great thing about using a flat frame is that if you don’t have a lot of space between your door and a screen door a flat framed wreath would fit.

Using my hot glue gun, I attached some of the fabric yoyos to the outside of the frame with their smooth sides up.

Do a dry fit before you glue the yoyos in place, mixing the colors and patterns in a way that you like.

There are no rules here, you just go for it.

The I did the same with the inside of the wreath frame.

The reason I added the yoyos around the edges of the wreath was to make it more substantial, and to make sure the mdf frame was completely covered.

Creating Easy Yoyo Flowers

For the top layer of the yoyo wreath I made some flowers by hot gluing some knitted rounds onto some yoyos.

I mixed the colors for interest, and I think that makes the flowers more fun.

I hot glued the yoyo flowers on the top of the wreath frame, making sure to cover up any gaps between the yoyos below.

Using the gathered sides of the yoyos gives them a more floral kind of look, and it also makes them stand out a bit from the smooth yoyos.

Every flower has to have a center, so I went into my button stash and hot glued what I found to dress the flowers up a bit.

Quick and easy fabric DIY yoyo wreath

My yoyo wreath is hanging on the inside of my kitchen door for now, so I can see it and enjoy it all the time.

The kitchen door is our main door and it makes me happy to have fun and colorful things on both sides of the door.

My Easter egg wreath was hanging on the outside of the front door until a few days ago, and my diy button wreath is there right now.
