These are similar to the old time yoyos made from circles of fabric and gathered on the edge. I have made these as a brooch or pin by gluing or sewing a pin on the back, and also as a hair ornament by adding a barrette hair clip to the back. You can add a button or bead in the center for more fun, or a sprig of tulle on the side too! Thanks for sharing!
