Each month I team up with my blogging friends and share a craft project with you made from supplies I have been
hoarding collecting. We call it the Craft Room De-Stash Challenge. This month I am finally motivated to started a project that I have been wanting to do forever. This Bohemian Dream Catcher is just one of several that I need to make for a future project.
My daughter collects dream catchers and I am going to make several Bohemian Dream Catchers to create a headboard for her bedroom. I have embroidery hoops in various sizes and several different patterns of crocheted doilies that I have been collecting from the flea market as well as yards and yard of lace trim.
Supplies Needed to Make a Bohemian Dream Catcher
- embroidery hoops in various sizes
- crocheted doily
- ribbon and lace trim
- hot glue
I have had some embroidery hoops in my stash for a long time because I just pick them up whenever I see them at yard sales or the flea market. I can usually pick them up for 25 cents each.
The crocheted doilies I used were picked up at the flea market for $1 each and make the perfect dream catcher because of their unique patterns. I don’t feel so bad cutting up these doilies because I try to pick the ones that are damaged or stained. Since I go for the worst of the bunch I tend to get a better price.
I have also been collecting lace trim and ribbon for the tails for my dream catcher. Today I hit the jackpot at the flea market because a lady was having a going out of business sale. She sold me a whole bag of lace trim and ribbons for $5. Score!
This particular dream catcher was made from a crocheted runner that had a burn mark right in the middle of it so naturally nobody wanted it. I scooped it up for $1 and used a 6 inch embroidery hoop to hold it tight so the beautiful pattern could be seen. Then I took my scissors and trimmed it around the edges of the hoop.
Then I broke out my handy dandy glue gun and added layers of lace, ribbon and twine to make the tails of the Bohemian Dream Catcher. I cut out some of the crocheted flowers and added them to the ribbons as well.
Now I only have to make 20 more of these Bohemian Dream Catcher to complete the headboard project which is a future post.
