Mini Dream Catcher Made Beautiful With Colorful Dew Drops How To

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Chattering Robin's blog. Michelle here with you today to share a brief tutorial, on how to make a mini lace dream catcher, with beautiful spring inspired colors using Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest.

Embroidery hoop dream catchers, are all the crafting rage right now. They can be simple and Bohemian styled, or made Shabby using beautiful laces & trims, or any style one can dream up. My little treasure leans toward the Bohemian, and a selection of Dew Drops were just the right touch.

For this project you will need:

4" Mini Embroidery Hoop
Embroidery Thread
Fabric Stiffener
Lace Trim
Spring Embellishments

From The Robin's Nest:
                                                      Easter Dew Drops

                                                 Spring Blooms Dew Drops

                                                   Silver Bells Dew Drops

Additional Tools & Supplies:
ScraPerfect Embellie Gellie
Crafting Needle

First I cut a 5 inch circle from pre-stiffened lace. I then lay & stretched the lace over the "inside", smaller circle of the embroidery hoop. I then added a dollop of glue around that inside circle under the lace, then carefully lay the larger hoop over, tightened and secured. 

After the glue had cured, I used an ombre' embroidery thread, and went around the hoop, to give the appearance the lace had been "sewn" into place.

I followed the paisley pattern of the lace, using a variety of Dew Drops over the entire surface, placing each into place using the Embellie Gellie tool.

Once the Dew Drops were glue and cured into place, I added satin ribbon & lace trim through the embroidery hoop lock, and glued to the bottom the hoop itself. I then decided to add Dew Drops from the same collections to the bottom of the satin ribbons.

To finish I added some butterfly & daisy embellishments.

This little beauty is the perfect addition to any room or window, as the sunlight can give a near sun catcher look.The entire project took about an hour, and was made perfect using The Robin's Nest Dew Drops.

I hope you find yourself inspired by this fun project.
