Paper, fabric, and embroidery hoops...does it get better?
by Monique Leslie | 4 years ago
This Dream Catcher was made using a 6" round wood cutout; I glued on the butterfly paper from the DCWV In Stitches Stack to the front. On the back I glued on various ribbons, ripped scrap fabric, yarn and the watercolor stack feather cut outs. The feathers were cut on my Cricut Explore. Here is the project link for the feathers. I then used a piece of ribbon at the top in a loop to create a hanger. I cut another piece of cardstock from the Watercolor Stack to glue to the back to hide all the bits of ribbon and twine. Lastly, I added this fun orange yarn to the top to sides and back edges to complete the look.
For my next Dream Catcher, I used a 5" Dream Catcher ring and the DCWV Paper Lace 6x6 stack. I first wrapped the ring in a fuzzy yarn to help adhere the paper in place (besides, I think it looks that much more cute with it there!). I next attached the paper lace page with glue and trimmed off the excess paper. Next I glued all the ribbons, yarn, fabric strips & twine to the back of my piece and added a loop at the top using a fabric strip. Finally, I finished it off using a mini pom pom trim around the ring as shown. Again I used the Cricut Explore to cut the feathers.
