I really like the look of dream catchers. There's just something so whimsical about them. I've been wanting to start a collection to hang above my bed. Originally I had thought about hanging a collection of antlers above my bed... but then I decided that I valued my eye balls too much. What if the antlers fell down one night? It's unlikely, sure. But I think dream catchers is a safer bet and I think they are super cute. I already made two small ones from doilies, you can see the tutorial for those here.
The larger ones were SUPER easy to make once I had the supplies. The toughest part is finding a few cute shawls from a thrift store. Yep, that's right, I made these from two old shawls. I simply opened up the embroidery hoops, placed the shawls in so that the fringe hung off the bottom edge, sealed them up and trimmed off the excess shawl material. I made the larger 3 dream catchers one evening in about 20 minutes.
I'm a lazy crafter sometimes.
Thanks for letting me share project number #25 of my 2012 craft challenge with you. xo. Emma
