Dream Catcher Doily
I wanted to make a dream catcher so I took an old doily, got a Dollar Store wire wreath, some other stuff and got started.
Some items I got from Michael's.
I wired the doily to the wreath which has 6 handy points to match those on the doily.
Then I wrapped with jute ribbon for an organic look. There's a stain on the doily that I tried to bleach out. I'll cover it up with feathers.
I glued little pieces of stiff interfacing on so there would be something to glue on the feathers.
I made a medallion with a little piece of leather and some little feathers.I wired in the side feathers and glued the medallion on top.

I glued the feathers onto the interfacing and wove them into the doily. Then I wired a bunch of small feathers and pulled them through the middle with some twine.
I added a little bling with malachite, lapiz, chrystal and abalone.
Using nail polish to stiffen the ends, I strung a couple of onyx beads on twine for some weight, tied the feathers together and tied the other end to back of the wire wreath.
I really shines against black.
Looks bright in the window.
