Since the DIY Christmas Ornaments have been so popular, I decided to feature another fun DIY that can be used for gifts this holiday season: DIY Dream Catchers courtesy of the creative minds from Free People’s blog BLDG 25. These dream catchers can be made from found and recycled materials.
Creating dream catchers varies depending on your artistic vision; however, Free People’s guest blogger Rachel Rice has shared a creative way to create “feather” tassels for your dream catcher using recycled plastic bottles. Here are the step-by-step directions courtesy of Free People:
What you’ll need:
Clean and empty plastic bottles (clear or colored)
Sharp scissors or an X-acto knife
Wire or Ribbon
Vintage trims, fabrics, or lace – your choice!
Jump holes (optional)
What to do:
Step 4: Using a hole punch, make a hole in one end of each “feather”. Make diagonal cuts into the sides of each “feather” using scissors. Optional: jump rings may be added to the feathers at this point if desired.
