So i stumbled across one of my amazing blogger friends posts- you can find here HERE, & her post HERE. It is a post on how to make dream catchers from scratch and i thought that it would be an awesome craft idea for me and Rosie to do.
We started by taking a trip into town. We already had a ton of errands to do so at the same time we grabbed the things we needed which where:
- Something circular.
Our something circular was a crochet holder (thing) where i got two and two different sizes. I paid around £5 for these, the wool was £1.20 and the beads where a £1. So altogether we paid around £8 in total. Rosie picked pink wool and multicolored beads.
We sat at the table and measure out our wool and tied it too the top to help it stop sliding anywhere (It didn’t work) we started wrapping the wool round and it was going well but Rosie would get frustrated and then Michael stepped in to help.
We started to get our rhythm it just flowed from there. We spent about 20 minutes to half an hour wrapping it while i explained to Rosie what a dream catcher was and what they did. She told me she wanted it her room and we agreed to put it up the next day.
When we finished wrapped we started putting the beads on and making the middle, this was Rosie’s favourite as she could pick what colours she wanted and how many she could put on one strand.
The finished product in my eyes looked great for a first try and we definitely agreed to make some more in the future. I think these would make a brilliant handmade present for someone and would look great hung up.
Again a massive credit to @Lentlesslypurpl for the amazing post and the great idea.
Do you have any cheap and cheerful crafty ideas?
