I made a wreath mobile for my youngest daughters room and I just love how it turned out!
I had a lot of extra silk flowers left over from the project and I was trying to decide what to do with them. I absolutely love dream catchers, I think they are beautiful and I love the story behind them. the vision was born, I decided to incorporate the two. Below you will find what I used to make the Wreath Dream Catcher and the steps to complete one for yourself! This is a fun, quick and easy project. Play around with different flowers and colors and have fun with it!
you can make this Dream Catcher any size you want. Grapevine wreaths are sold in many different sizes. The steps will be the same no matter the size you choose.
Here is a picture of the materials you will need.
- The first step is to take your grapevine wreath and your string. Tie a knot at the top of the grapevine and create a loop. This is what your Dream Catcher will hang by.
- Next, create the web by taking the same string, and cutting a long piece. If you run out, just simply tie more on and you won’t even notice. Starting where your loop is, tie on the string. In a swooping motion, take the string under the grapevine, around and then through the loop you made. Continue all the way around, ending at the top where you started. It should look something like this.
3. Now, you will continue this pattern all the way around. Go under the middle of the first space you made, around and through. Go through the middle of all the spaces in this pattern, pulling tightly as you go. Continue around and around. It should be looking like this.
4. Once you reach the middle, and only have a small hole left, tie a knot. Trim the end piece.
5. Now the fun part! Place your flowers around the grapevine in a aesthetically pleasing way. I start by placing the flowers first, then add the leaves. once I like the way it is looking, I start to glue the flowers on.
6. Continue building around your foundation of flowers and leaves. At this point, you should also tie on 8 pieces of string to the bottom of your dream catcher. Make them different lengths so that the feathers will hang from different levels. Now you can continue adding flowers and leaves to cover the string you just tied on.
7. Once you are happy with the placement of your flowers and leaves. Start to tie on the feathers to the strings from the previous step. I like to add 3 or 4 feathers to one string, it makes the bottom fuller and looks better then using a single feather.
8. There you have it! Hang your new Floral Dream Catcher on the wall and enjoy!
