Don’t you just love the bohemian colors in this felt dreamcatcher?! A different take on real feathers, this version uses felt to add a colorful pop to any room.
If you love boho-inspired home decor, this project is definitely for you! This DIY is totally customizable, meaning you can use your favorite colors and beads, and make this as big or as dainty as you wish.
I used warm pinks, yellows and purples here to contrast against my white walls. I could definitely see this working in greens and blues for a very mermaid-inspired look!
Step 1: Gather materials. You will need felt in various colors, monofilament (I always use fishing line for craft projects, probably because I have a lot of it! Either works.), a dreamcatcher hoop (you can find these at craft stores like Hobby Lobby), agate slices with holes drilled in them, crimping pliers, a leather punch or small hole punch, scissors, crimps, and an assortment of beads.
Step 2: Cut felt feathers out of the felt. Lay one cut feather over felt to use as a pattern of sorts, to make sure they are all similar sizes. You can cut as many as you want — depending on how filled you want your dreamcatcher. I cut 10 feathers.
Step 3: Punch small holes in the top of each feather with the hole puncher.
Step 4: Cut foot-length pieces of monofilament. String through the hole in each feather. Slide beads, and tie overhand knots to secure beads on monofilament.
Step 5: Thread a crimp onto the monofilament, then monofilament around hoop, then back through crimp. Crimp shut and cut excess monofilament.
Step 6: Continue process with each feather, graduating lengths and colors for an ombre look.
Step 7: Thread a foot-long piece of monofilament through the top hole of an agate slice. Add a bead, then a crimp. Thread over top of hoop this time, then back through crimp, pulling snug. Crimp and cut excess. This will secure agate to top of the loop. To hang, cut another piece of monofilament and simply overhand knot it around the top of hoop!
