Make 1 extra small yo-yo.

Follow step 2 as you make 2 large, 2 extra-large and 2 jumbo yo-yos. Remember to lightly stuff one of each size yo-yo.
Using an extra-long needle, string the yo-yos through the centers in the following order starting from the base of the tree; 1 jumbo yo-yo gather side down, 1 stuffed jumbo yo-yo gather side up (all remaining yo-yos will be strung with the gathers up.) 1 extra-large yo-yo, 1 stuffed extra-large yo-yo, 1 large yo-yo, 1 stuffed large yo-yo, 1 small yo-yo, 1 stuffed small yo-yo, and the extra small yo-yo to complete the tree. Go back through to the base of the tree with the needle and thread and tie off to secure all yo-yos in place.
Glue your choice of embellishment to the top of your tree.
