DIY Dream Catcher

I love a bit of DIY and lately I've seen some jaw dropping wedding set ups with these whimsical dream catchers so I thought I would give it a go and it turns out they are really easy and quick to make. So if your an impatient crafter, like myself, this is the project for you!

What you need;

(I got all of mine from spotlight)

  • Rattan cane ring
  • Doily's
  • Wool/string (colour to match your doily)
  • Fabric (I used lace curtains and a another lace type fabric to give my dream catcher a lil  dimension)
  • Ribbon.

1.Start off by tying your doily nice and tight to the rattan cane ring. Use the wool or string to do this

2. Cut out strips of your fabric roughly about 3cm wide. The length is totally upto you, I went for around a meter.

3. Tie your fabric onto the rattan cane ring. I looped mine on but you could also tie it on. It depends on how thick you want it to be. I found that by looping the fabric on it meant I didn't need to cut as many strips and it was cleaner around the ring.

Keep adding fabric until you are happy with the dream catcher. I added some ribbon here and there so add a bit of colour then I trimmed the fabric so that it was all different lengths.

 

 

And there you have it! Your very own dream catcher! I made a few of them for a window display, pics below, click on the image to see more x
