Sure. Just put the rpms of interest in a directory, run createrepo on the
directory and set up an appropriate repo description in
/etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo for some value of *.

For myself I usually mirror the relevant arch parts of updates and
updates-testing and only put a few special things in a local repo.
