For some reason I’ve always loved dreamcatchers that use RIBBONS instead of feathers. But maybe that’s just me.
But there is one thing you cannot deny- is it not the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen??
I won’t deny that there is some pretty tough competition out there, but it’s up there, you know?
Anyway. Enough puppy, more dreamcatcher.
Here we go:
DIY: MINI DREAMCATCHER
Um, actually, I made it at midnight (literally. This is how I spent my New Years. Because I’m that HARDCORE.), and pretty much winged it (not that this is unusual..), so I didn’t even consider taking how-to shots. So you’re gonna have to trust my written word.
Okay, so you start with a ring (mine was metal, but anything circular and ring-ish would be fine. Hulla hoop, anyone?) and wrap a thin strip of leather all the way around, super gluing as you go. Leave the ends long enough to make a loop (I knotted mine, trimmed it, and glued the knot to the back).
Then, using elastic (tried string, it went saggy- oh DAYUM gurrrlll. Um, what?), make a star and tie it off somewhere inconspicuous. Sneaky, cheeky knots.
Now tie on the ‘tails’. This is my favourite part- I chose a whole heap of ribbons and fabrics that meant something to me or belonged to some special memory.
And you’re done! Yay for super-speedy crafting! Feel free to sit back and admire. Or go to sleep because you’re rather exhausted and why are you even awake at midnight.
More DIY coming soon!
