This bright green wool is possibly the most challenging craft ingredient I’ve ever encountered! When I first saw it in my Bostik craft box, I was a bit stumped. But then Beth suggested that we make dreamcatchers.
When she was little I would hang them in her bedroom to scare aware the bad dreams and catch the good! She still has the little pink net that I bought her when she was a toddler. But I knew that home made dream catchers would be even more special and all we would need to add was a couple of embroidery hoops.
As you can see, Beth’s adopted a freestyle approach to her net, but if you’d like a more structured look, just follow the instructions below.
NB: Please excuse the marks on the coffee table – it’s waiting to be sanded back and waxed :-S
You Will Need:
An embroidery hoop
A ball of yarn
- Separate the two parts of the hoop.
- Cut a length of yarn about 1m long and tie to the central circle using knots around 3cm apart.
- Now do the same again but instead of tying to the hoop, tie to the first row of yarn.
- Continue to add new layers incorporating beads every now and again.
- Don’t worry if you drop the odd knot, infact it looks better if you do!
- Wrap the outer circle with yarn.
- Tie beads and feathers to lengths pot yarn and tie these to the inner circle
- Slot the two circles together
- Tie a loop of yarn to the top of the hoop
