Yo-Yo Picture HangerAugust 10th, 2016 in projects
When I found these yo-yos, it took me right back to my childhood. After giving them a spin the traditional way, I realized I am no better at the subtle art of yo-yo-ing (is that a word?) today than I was in the days of yore. Good thing I know how to repurpose!
Five old yo-yos
Five 1 1/2 in. wood screws
Two picture hangers
Rag to apply wood cleaner
Step 1: Clean squeegee with wood cleaner (we use Skidmore's.)
Step 2: Cut string from yo-yos.
Step 3: Measure for yo-yo placement starting with the center yo-yo. Space evenly.
Step 4: Glue yo-yos into place and let dry.
Step 5: Flip squeegee over and attach yo-yos with wood screws.
Step 6: Measure and place one picture hanger to each top end.
Tip: Hang pictures of your choice. I used pre-cut picture greeting cards, envelopes with a cellophane front, black mat board, star grommets, and narrow leather cord. Oh, and of course, vintage letters from auto emblems to identify the peeps in the pics!
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
