Assemble your own dreamcatcher for a sweet night’s sleep with die-cut felt stars and feathers in pretty candy colours.
1. Wrap Stick it! 3D Foam Tape around a metal hoop, ensure there are no gaps or overlapping. Cover a third of the hoop with pink embroidery thread, tuck in the end before you start so it is hidden underneath. Change to pale blue and then royal blue embroidery thread for the other two thirds. Sew in the remaining loose end.
2. Create a hanging loop in the centre of the royal blue section, wrap royal blue thread around the hoop a couple of times, pop a silver Craft Planet Pony Beads Metallic onto it and stitch a white pom from the Craft Planet Pompoms Assorted Colours on top.
3. Die cut three blue stars from Craft Planet Baby Blue 9 x 12'' Acrylic Felt using the smallest star in the Xcut Star Nesting Dies. Use a long piece of royal blue embroidery thread and wrap it around the outside of the hoop, crossing it over in the centre to create a star shape. Pop a needle on the end so that you can incorporate the three blue stars, pom poms and beads. Secure the end with a stitch on the back of the hoop.
4. Use the smallest die in the nesting dies set and the next size up to create four star outlines in Craft Planet 9 x 12'' Yellow Acrylic Felt. Die cut a further four blue stars and sixteen in yellow with the smallest die, make sure you keep the stars from the centre of the outlines too.
5. Run the Xcut Feather Dinky Die through the die-cutting machine eight times with baby blue felt, another eight times with Craft Planet 9 x 12'' Pink Acrylic Felt and twelve times with Craft Planet 9 x 12'' White Acrylic Felt.
6. Create the fringe of the dreamcatcher by attaching pale blue and royal blue thread to the bottom of the hoop. Thread with pompoms, beads and the small die-cut stars and feathers. Fix the star outlines to the thread with Anita’s Tacky Glue. Add a royal blue, pale blue and white pom from the Craft Planet Pompoms Pastel Assorted Colours pack onto the bottom half of the hoop in line with the centre and outer lengths of thread.
