Beach House Decor
It is important to decorate your dream
catcher with your favprite items. We figured you would want to showcase some of the seashells you have collected.
1. Tie a head knot to where you want your dream catcher to
hang from and then macramé your quilting hoop. I decided I wanted to spray paint one
of my hoops gold and add ribbon to another. You could modpodge fabric, or tightly warp it with yarn.
2. Lay your doily in the center of the quilting hoop and then secure the horizontal sides first, being sure to stretch and secure tightly. The best way to secure evenly is to divide by sections. I opted for 9 & 3 then 12 & 6 and so forth (clock sections). This way you can secure each side with even tension. Don't cut your twine after, let it dangle so you can attach your adornments.
3. Once your doily web is bound evenly inside the hoop, start adding your adornments. Braid ribbons and twine, add tassels, ornaments, feathers, shells, driftwood, beads, crystals, chimes, or anything of significance to you! If you're hoping for a little extra glamour in your dream-scapades, use Mod-Podge or another adhesive to glitter up your feather tips!
Hot glue proved to be incredibly helpful when working with fishing line and the beads.
Don't be afraid to over do it. You can always refine your choices.
