Instructions:

  • Take any size embroidery loop you’d like to use. The bigger ones can hold a lot more, but will require more material to cover and decorate.
  • Wrap twine (or yarn or ribbon) around the embroidery hoop to cover it up. You can even omit this step if you want the wood to show.
  • Next gather up your materials to tie onto the dreamcatcher. This is a great opportunity to use all those leftover yarn, ribbon or twine pieces you have lying around for a rainy day.
  • Figure out a good length and cut the pieces out.
  • It’s best to lay out the pieces before tying them, so you know what order you’d like for them to be in.
  • Once you figure that out, tie it onto the dreamcatcher!
  • From here, take clothespins or clips to attach photo prints.

You can fill them up as much or as little as you’d like! Paper feathers were also used in this dreamcatcher from an old gift tag. It’s a great way to recycle past projects and turn them into something new!

What do you do for a living? Where ya from?

  • I’m a home, food, and lifestyle blogger at Love Grows Wild, and I live on a farm with my husband and two boys in Indiana.

What are your passions? What inspires you?

  • I love decorating my home and building things with my own two hands. Furniture makeovers, creating artwork, working with power tools… it’s all such a great creative outlet for me! We’re a young family on a budget, so I love transforming our home with a high-end look for a discount price. I also love cooking and am a huge fan of caramel, mushrooms, coffee, and toffee! My inspiration comes from many places… photography, travel, and some of my role models like Nate Berkus, Martha Stewart, and Sarah Richardson.

Please tell us a little more about your blog! How did you get started?

  • I started my blog after moving out into the middle of nowhere with my farmer husband, as a way to share my ideas with the world. I love creating recipes or tutorials for other people to re-create in their own home and share with their family and friends! It’s my very favorite part of my job. : )
