Yo-Yo Wall Art

Elevate yo-yos to a new level: Mount them on a painted artist's canvas and present the composition as a wall hanging. To show off the colorful prints, some of these yo-yos are right side up and the rest are upside down. Fabrics are a variety of prints by designer Kaffe Fassett for Westminster Fabrics.

Mount Yo-Yos on Canvas

1. Lay out yo-yos in 13 rows of 10 each. Position some of the yo-yos right side up and others wrong side up as desired. When pleased with the arrangement, whipstitch yo-yos together in each row (Photo 3). Join rows in same manner to make yo-yo rectangle. (If desired, instead of whipstitching yo-yos together, position them on canvas and use a glue gun to secure them in place.)

2. Paint canvas and let dry. Position yo-yo rectangle on canvas and use a staple gun to attach outer edges of rectangle to frame of canvas.
