Hello, DIY DREAM CATCHERS!

This one’s for any hippie-loving-boho-free spirited-babe.

Since moving into my new casa, I’m a total white freak ( with a lil gold & turquoise ).

White curtains, white bed, white desk— ya get my drift.

So anyway, it’s no surprise that I wanted/needed/had to have white dream catchers all over my bedroom.

And these dream catchers were surprisingly easy to make…

BUT.

…I can’t lie- my crafty-ass friends, Erica ( from Fashionlush ) & Katie ( from The Fashion Bite ) def held my hand.

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

So, if you’re a real Crafty Connie, you’ll love this pretty, lil project.

Whatcha need:

<< metal hoops
<< white suede lace
<< sinew {or} waxed thread
<< super glue // clothespins
<< white feathers
<< dainty chain // trinkets // turquoise beads

How to:

1.} Wrap suede lace around a metal hoop. Use a clothing pin to hold things in place. When complete, finish it off with a bit of super glue to make sure it holds. Make sure to start wrapping with a little hoop so you’re able to hang it.

2.} Wrap waxed thread or sinew. This step can be difficult, but this diagram makes it easier to understand how to wrap a dreamcatcher.

3.} Add ribbons ( or use the leftover suede lace ). Tie them on to the dreamcatcher. Optional: throw a little chain into the mix hanging from the center of your DIY dreamcatcher.

4.} Finish things off with a couple pretty gold charms & add turquoise chunks.

5.} Tie off the ends of the ribbon ( or suede lace ) with a bunch of feathers.

I’m loving it hanging off the horn of this handsome skull.

Welllllll- what should we make for our next DIY? LMK below.

    Oh, but do they catch dreams or “merely” inspire them? I once heard from a guy who was accepted into a First Nation tribe that did these things that it had to be somehow “impregnated” by a spell for to work in its alleged capacity. But then the inspiration and aesthetics is a reward in itself.
