We’re always looking for fun ways to decorate our desk spaces at work, and these mini dream catchers do just that! I was inspired to make them after seeing these incredible beauties that our store display team made for our Costa Mesa store:
Brigette happened to have some leftover fabric from her reupholstered chair that I was able to cut little pieces of, and it worked perfectly. This is also a great project to use old crochet or vintage doilies for!
The only other thing you need are twigs from a twig wreath, which I got at A.C. Moore. I just pulled it apart and used a small section of it.
Using a needle and thread, sew the crochet doily to the twig wreath using each point of the doily, and wrapping the thread around the twigs so you’re simultaneously holding the twigs together as well.
For the pieces hanging down from the dream catcher, I used thin strips of fabric and attached them to the twigs with a needle and thread.
The result is a very shabby-chic dream catcher, don’t you think?
It fits in nicely at Brigette’s desk :)
This was so easy I decided to make another one, and for this one I really wanted to dip dye the crochet doily. Luckily we have a dye room here at Free People, but this could be done very easily at home, too! I love how the purple color came out.
If you don’t feel like making your own dream catcher, we have some really amazing larger ones coming in later this week, so keep an eye out on freepeople.com!
