Yesterday afternoon, I told myself that I had to take these pictures. And I did. Although I'm not the best photographer in the world, but at least you'll get the general idea.

You ladies certainly are creative! I loved all the ideas you gave me, and I'll share a few before I show you what I actually did make.

Maybe individually they could be used as an accent pin on a dress or coat; or glued around a vanity mirror like a frame?

What about a pin in the hair? Or attach a hair tie to it?

I'm thinking what about putting them on a fleece scarf?

Sew them onto a few headbands, for sure. I think they would make ultra cute accessories!

There were other great ideas, too, and if you'd like to read them you can check out the original post.

I liked the scarf idea, and I got these fleece examples for $5. So I had to group them in three's (I can be a little strange like that), and instead of sewing them directly to the scarves, I sewed them onto safety pins and pinned them to the scarves. So if you wanted the flowers in a different spot, you can move them! I thought that was a nice touch.

I was also planning on making some hair pins. I made 3 sets, but 2 of them went bye-bye before I took the pictures (They were Christmas gifts for my sweetheart's nieces). So I can only show you the one, but they're all really cute.

{The color is kind of strange in this picture...sorry. Someday I'll learn to take better photos. Or get Photoshop so I can fix them.}

I also got some simple plastic skinny headbands to use:

I actually wore the purple-flower headband last week for fun, and people liked it! The 2 white headbands will have their own flowers someday soon, I just haven't done it yet.

So there ya go!

I'm sure there's more I can do with these, but right now I don't have much time to play around with them. I have made more though, so if inspiration comes upon me, I'll be ready. =)

I will hopefully put up a tutorial on how to make these yo-yo's after the New Year, but if you're dying to know how to make them now, Heather Bailey's tutorial worked great for me!

Oh, and if you come up with any more clever uses, be sure to let me know. =)

Great use for the yo-yo's. Plead do a tutorial. I want to make some for some headbands and paintings. I haven't worn a head band since 5th grade and I need to welcome them back in style.
