DIY – Dream Jewelry Catcher

dream9

I thought this whole parenting thing would get easier the longer I did it – I was wrong. Now at 7 months, generic viagra seek Felix is needier than ever. I love that kid but, boy oh boy, he doesn’t know how to play/sleep/be on his own. Needless to say, like most moms, my time is limited. And for sanity’s sake, I need an outlet – a creative, time-sensitive outlet. I’m going to focus on crafts that anyone with a busy schedule can realistically do – so shove it Pinterest, I don’t have a personal assistant.

You’ll also find that I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to crafting. I’m on board with Salvidor Dali when he said,”Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” I believe that beauty is found in the mistakes. Now that you know my craft philosophy, let’s get dopey and do some “no pressure” crafting. Here you’ll find a earring holder dream catcher.

1. I found this doily at my local thrift store for $2 – I like the intricacy for holding different types of earrings. Mount doily on embroidery hoop. Cut excess fabric so that there is a centimeter border remaining.

2. Hot glue the excess fabric to the back of the embroider hoop.

3. Tie andΒ  hot glue the embroidery thread to the feathers. Leave a bit of the feather’s “stem” for the wooden beads to rest on. Put on wooden beads.

4. I used a needle to loop the embroidery thread through the doily. Then I tied a tight knot at the base of the embroidery hoop.

5. I threaded the excess embroidery thread through the top two beads and tied it off. Cut off the excess thread and cover up the knot with the beads.

6. Repeat with other feathers, if desired.

7. Voila! So easy, fast and the whole project cost me under $5!

Hope you enjoyed this little craft! We’ll be posting DIY projects every Tuesday from here on out.
