Hello Crafters! 👋
How was your week? Crafty enough? 😀
Well.. I had a really busy week. But I did get a chance to start on a new book. It is just a chapter old. It is a mystery thriller and got me pumped up on the chapter itself! Hopefully I will be getting more time for myself this week. I can’t wait to get back to the book! 📖
So as I had mentioned in my last post, this month I will be blogging on dreams and it’s representation – dreamcatchers.
Dreamcatchers are actually pretty basic. It requires the minimum supplies and have the ability to be modified by the crafter according to their choices.
Today I will be posting a pictorial representation on the very basic tutorial of how to make a dreamcatcher.
To make a dreamcatcher you will require a hoop, some thread or yarn and beads and feathers for embellishment.
Wrap the yarn around the hoop, making sure it doesn’t unravel. Once the yarn has been wrapped around the entire hoop, tie the end to create a loop.
Tie the end of the thread securely near the loop end. Next, wrap the thread over the hoop and then around. Continue this until you have completed one full circle of loop.
Repeat the above mentioned process BUT this time around the first section of webbing that have been created.
Continue to create circles of webbing by looping over and around each sectionof thread between the previous loops.
Once there is a small space left in the middle, string on a bead, push it all the way through the center without releasing the tension on the thread. Make a tight knot.
Arrange sets of feathers and beads and add laces or ribbons or both and tie them to add the finishing touches to your dreamcatcher.
Ta daaa. .! 😄
The dreamcatcher is ready to adorn your wall or your bed stand or wherever you please to put it.
I will be back tomorrow with a dreamcatcher-inspired craft. Until then….
– Happy Crafting
