We absolutely love Louise Dunbar’s Floral Dream Catcher, and we know you will too! Adorned with beautiful flowers and a “Love and Dream” sentiment, this DIY dream catcher is the perfect project to welcome the spring season. What’s more, the finished project will make a charming addition to your bedroom. Follow Louise’s project step-by-step to recreate the dream catcher or simply use her design as inspiration for your own.
Take your chosen ribbon or material and wrap it around the frame to cover. If using a thinner material like lace (which is what i used) you might want to give the MDF a little coat of paint or gilding wax to take away the wood colour, although i don’t mind that shabby chic look. If you want to add the colour, do this before you wrap it.
Take the thread or string that you want to use for the dream catcher element and starting at one side, add a blob of glue to the back of the frame, stick the string down then, stretch it across to the opposite side and glue into place, you can either cut the string and move to the next piece or you can carry on where you last glued then stretch across in another direction. Carry on until you are happy that it looks like a dream catcher, then set aside and move on to the flowers.
I used a forever flowers festive flowers peonies for my flowers as i think they are beautiful and are very realistic looking.
Following the instructions within the kit, go ahead and make up some flowers, I used 4 on my dream catcher.
If you don’t have this kit, you can always make your own flowers using foam and dies, or paper flowers. If using the forever flowers, I found that the stem at the back was slightly too long so I cut it down a bit so that the flowers would glue down a bit flatter to my frame.
Decide where to place the flowers on the front of your frame and glue them in place.
I also added 3 longer pieces of string and glued them so they hung from the bottom, then attached a die cut feather to each one. A real feather would look good too.
You can add a sentiment and some gems round the dream catcher to finish it off or leave it as is.
