DIY: Ribbons and Charms Dream Catcher




I received this plastic ring when Target surprised me with the Jason Wu cat scarf. For some reason (perhaps the hoarder inside me) I was drawn to it. I kept it on my desk thinking I could make something out of it. Weeks past and then a few days ago I saw a dream catcher on Oh The Lovely Things and the plastic ring has finally fulfilled its serendipitous duty. Yay!

Here are the steps:

1. Here are the supplies I used plus a glue gun.

2. Wrap the ring in white ribbon.

4. Wrap the black ribbon around the ring. Glue the ribbon down to secure it on the ring.

5. Find some charms, beads and feathers and tie them on the ring.

And now I have a dream catcher made of the Target scarf ring! So the moral of the story is hoarding is good... Until TLC finds a dead animal in your pile of stuff when they film your segment for Hoarding: Buried Alive. Then it's frowned upon. But until then- keep hoarding.

  22. I love serendipity--and the print behind the dream-catcher (and the dream-catcher)!

    I have to speak out against hoarding. It will be the death of me. I will either go insane from all the junk in our house, have my life cut short by all the dust it accumulates, or go peacefully in my sleep when SOMEONE puts boxes right next to the furnace and dryer after I've explained 12,000 times that's a fire hazard. Grrr!

    But I know you're version of hoarding is nothing like that. Your work room is so neat and clean and orderly. I love that room! =)

  30. I am known to hoard things like that for a "rainy craft day." right now I have the top filter part of a can of sprinkles to use as a stencil I think, and some hospital swabs to use for stamps!
