Today I'm featuring a project using some wonderful new ribbons from Gwen Studios.
I was going to use a piece of driftwood for the dreamcatcher, but decided to use a hoop instead. The hoop I used is 12" and so is the white doily. I used the embroidery thread for the hanger.
I used hot glue to tack the doily to the edge of the hoop. You can tie it on also with the embroidery thread or more ribbon.
Then, I used a Lark's Head knot to tie on the ribbons. I interspersed them with the pom-pom and tassel trim and the narrower ribbons from the Sweet Shop cards. The trims are tacked to the hoop with hot glue.
Next, I added some ribbon, shells, a starfish and driftwood to the top of the hoop with hot glue. The ribbon at the top is the mint green and tan burlap ribbon scrunched and glued to the hoop first. The last step is to trim the ends of the ribbons as you wish.
And, here it is completed - a quick and easy summer craft that catches the winds and lifts your spirits!
I can't wait to try this craft again. It's the first dreamcatcher I've ever made, and it was so easy. Did you see those wonderful red, white and blue ribbons in the first photo? Those will be next!
