DIY Dream Catcher

I am, as always, doing some redecorating of my apartment. I decided to make my own (super girly) dream catcher to hang by my bed.

Items you will need:
Circle hoop (I used a wood, cross stitch frame)
String (The more colors, the more fun!)
Glue (Easiest if you use a hot glue gun)

I started by using a pink string to tie a knot around the hoop, and then applied a dot of glue to hold it in place.

I zig-zagged the string around the hoop; using dots of glue to hold it in place so it didn't slip. After a few wraps I started adding beads.

I continued until I was satisfied with the center of the dream catcher.

Next, I used a shimmery blue string to start wrapping the outside of the hoop.

I thought it would be cute to do the blue string three quarters around the hoop and then switch to a shimmery yellow. (FYI I ran out of blue string didn't it come out cute though?)

I bought some pastel colored feathers at the craft store. I added a dot of glue to the tip of the feather and used a shimmery green string to wrap the tip of the feather. 

I strung some cheap pearl beads, (purchased from a craft store) to the string attached to the feathers. Finally, I used another dot of glue to secure the green string to the hoop and then kept each string (attached to the feathers) a different length.

Totally loving the finished product!

Perfectly Glossed Kisses,
