DIY Dreamcatcher Collab

Hey babes… we’re back for collab number 2! Blogger babes Erica of Fashionlush, Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential, and myself will be teaming up each month to bring you a super cute and creative DIY project. So fun!

We’re all totally obsessed with dreamcatchers. I mean, who isn’t. I love adding to my dreamcatcher collection, the more the merrier, right? Dreamcatchers are said to protect the sleeping from bad dreams while letting the good ones through. Sooo… in my mind more dream catchers mean less bad dreams and more dreams coming true ( which BTW they totally are ). I’m pretty sure making your own dreamcatcher makes your dreams come true even faster… so get on it!

1) Wrap your hoop with the suede lacing. Begin by securing one end of the suede to your hoop with a clothes pin so that you can get the right tension. Wrap hoop completely and finish with superglue. Choose a hoop the desired size of your dreamcatcher. If you are making multiples, mix up the size!

2) Time to string it up. Tie your waxed thread around the hoop and between the suede ( ya know, the little cracks where the suede meets up ). Create a web-like pattern by stringing along the outside of the hoop and working your way in, connecting the strings as you go along. This part can get a little confusing. If you need a little extra help check out this site. Remember not to leave too much tension or it will look sloppy.

3) Add your feathers. Gather a few feathers, 3 – 4. Tie one end of suede around the ends of your feather and the other around the bottom of your hoop. Mix up the lengths of your suede so that your feathers all hang at different levels. Repeat, repeat, repeat. The good dreams are said to glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below, aka you!
