DIY Modern Dreamcatcher

July 22, 2016

 

I’ve been searching all of Pinterest and Google for a dream catcher or wall hanging for my room. Since I’m going to be room sharing with my newest little one who’s due this fall, I wanted something that was chic and modern. Something to go with both of our styles. There’s lots of inspo on Pinterest (duh!) but nothing exactly like what I pictured in my mind. So I decided to create it myself. I’m in love with how it turned out and now have a beautiful statement piece for me and bebe girls room. Best part was that everything was very easy, minimal materials and very affordable to do your own! I made a simple step by step tutorial to show you exactly how to create this modern dream catcher. Hope you love it! And if you happen to make something similar, show it to me! Would love to see how you created something beautiful for your home. 

Modern Dream Catcher 

Materials:

 

Instructions: 

  1. Start by tying the smaller ring to the larger ring as close and tightly as you can make it. Have enough string to make a loop for hanging on the wall. FullSizeRender-4
  2. Cut long pieces of yarn at least 3 feet so that you have enough room to cut and play with the length at the final step. 
  3. Start with tying a simple knot of the white yarn from the small ring to the larger ring. Tie closer to the sides and work your way inwards towards the widest part of the diameter. FullSizeRender-5FullSizeRender-6
  4. Repeat step 3 until you have tied 12 white, 6 gold, 4 pink, 6 gold, 12 white. Don’t worry too much if they don’t seem too tight at first, this can be adjusted by scrunching the ties at the top closer together and spreading the bottoms ties apart. FullSizeRender-7
  5. Carefully trim off the loose strands from the small ring.FullSizeRender-9
  6. Finish by trimming off the hanging yarns to your desired look. I went with a subtle V cut. Cut small amounts at first and continue until you get your desired length. FullSizeRender-10

Note: You can use one skein of yarn in one color or get funky and use several bold colors. You will have lots of yarn left over since you only need a small amount for this project.
