I’ve seen so many of these amazing dream catchers and wanted to try to make some for myself on a budget. I found a vintage table cloth, all of the embroidery hoops, and all of the trim for the bottom half of the dream catchers at a thrift store. I’m using some affiliate links to show you where you can find some of these supplies like these embroidery hoops and this Fabri Tac glue that I love, for a budget friendly price. The supplies can be found at a craft store as well and there are so many different things that can be used for the centers and hangings that it makes it fun to go on the hunt for fun items to use. I’ve seen many made with doilys but when I found this lace table cloth for $2, I knew it would cover all of the hoops for such a great deal! Start off by taking the hoop apart.
Next place the hoop with the tightener on top and pinch the hoops together. Pull the lace through the back after pinching together until taught and then tighten the screw at the top of the hoop to hold tight. The excess fabric can then be cut from the back side.
I glued pieces of trim fabric on mine (just on the back bottom lip of the loop) but you can use many different items such as strings of leather, strings with feathers, beads, etc… I used “Fabri-tac” glue, which I love since it holds so tight. I found it at Walmart but have also seen it at various fabric stores. The bottom strung fabric could also be tied on if thin enough. These are so simple to make and my daughter enjoyed helping too.
I hope this helps you with a fun, affordable project. I sure love how they add so much texture to my space! Happy crafting!
