You say to cut 18 circles templates ranging in size from 220mm down to 50 mm, in 10mm increments. Ummm----220mm? I have 4 Clover yo-yo circles; a 60mm (it's yellow), a 45mm (it's orange-like your example), a 30mm (it's green) & a 20mm (it's blue).
For your 220mm, are you measuring circumference BEFORE or after you've made the yo-yo? Am I to assume that a 200mm yo-yo starts with, essentially, a piece of mat'l that about 9-inches around?
The measurement in mm is of the diameter. Yes the largest one 220mm is approximately 8.6 inches across. I made cardboard templates for a range of yo yo sizes from 10mm to 240, but did not use all of them for this project. I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please reply to this comment and I should get a notice and can get back to you. Happy yo-yoing.
I would love to make the yo yo trees for the nursing home this coming year but I would like the size in the circle in inches to make it easy for me I have to make at least 85of them thank you Karen.
Can someone please help me find this large wooden spool used in this Christmas tree? Spool Yo Yo Tree. I would prefer to buy in bulk/wholesale.
When I made this craft I purchased the spools in a small bag from Joann Fabrics and Crafts. Michael's also carries them. As to buying them wholesale there are a number of vendors on the internet that offer them.
Covering a Styrofoam or paper cone with seasonal fabric yo yos is a fun way to make a Christmas tree decoration to grace your table or to brighten up a room for the holidays. This is a page about yo yo Christmas tree.
