Pink Paislee | Home Decor Dreamcatcher

It's Home Decor week on the Pink Paislee Blog, and the Design Team has some great inspiration in store for you!  I started things off yesterday, with a Dreamcatcher created with the new Moonstruck collection and an Embroidery Hoop.


The Dreamcatcher trend has been popping up in the paper crafting world, so I thought it would be fun to interpret it into a Home Decor piece.  My daughter's love it when I make projects like this and they usually fight over who gets to have it in their room.  HA!  This time the younger sister won out.


This project was fun and easy to put together. I used a 9″ embroidery hoop which you can find at your local craft store for a very low price. I cut a circle from one of the Moonstruck patterned papers to fit behind the embroidery hoop. You could also do the opposite if you wanted to and add your circle over the top of the embroidery hoop. Next, I cut a 9″ spiral cut file to layer over the patterned paper before adhering it to the embroidery hoop.



Once I had the paper adhered to the embroidery hoop, I grabbed the three feathers from the Moonstruck ephemera pack. I machine stitched through each of the feathers, leaving a long piece of thread at the top and bottom of each one. I also die cut two feathers on my Silhouette Cameo from two different Moonstruck patterned papers and stitched those as well. Then I hung each feather by placing the thread on the back side of the patterned paper and securing it with washi tape.


I finished the dreamcatcher design with a few more embellishments from the Moonstruck ephemera pack and puffy stickers. I added dimension to the project by stitching through the butterflies and folding the wings before adhering them to the patterned paper. If you wanted to personalize your home decor dreamcatcher even more, you could paint your embroidery hoop before assembling it or even add your favorite ribbon or trim on the outside edge of the circle.
