Step 1…

Wrap your lace off cuts around the metal ring until all of the metal is covered. Our metal ring is 30cm in diameter but you can buy these in various sizes online! Glue gun or tie the lace in place.

Step 2…

Place the metal ring onto your large piece of lace (we found our piece of lace in a charity shop). Sew at 1cm intervals around the ring to secure the lace in place.

Step 3…

Once you’ve finished sewing, trim away the excess lace outside of the metal ring.

Step 4…

Place your collection of ‘natural materials’ around the dream catcher until you’re happy with their positions. We’ve used a mixture of twigs, pinecones & seaweed that we’ve found on our travels! Always keep an eye out for future projects when out for a wonder :)

Step 5…

Cut random lengths of twine, string & lace to hang from your dream catcher. Tie the mixture of lengths to your dream catcher at various points until you’re happy with the overall effect. We’ve tied our pieces to the twigs as well as the metal frame.

Step 6…

Tie a mixture of feathers & beads to the ends of your string, twine & lace. We used beads from an old broken necklace but you can also but new beads online.

Step 7…

For a splash of colour paint a few twigs to match the colours of the beads and feathers you’re using. We’ve painted ours with an Aztec pattern for a boho festival vibe but of course this is totally up to you.
