DIY boho chic doily dreamcatcher

My two daughters and I recently took a trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to spend a week with my parents.

We got to spend quality time with Mammy and Papa, enjoyed some warmth and sunshine, the beach, activities, and a little shopping.  While shopping the boardwalk one day, I stumbled upon 2 stores that I just fell in love with and I wanted to share them with you.

The first store is  Savannah Bee Company.   Healthy beauty products, unique gifts and their flavorful, savory honey is just YUMMY!   Who wouldn’t love a company that also supports the Bee Cause Project?!?  As we all know, honey bees play a HUGE role in pollinating so much of foods that we eat.

Bees lives matter, it’s that simple.

So when I say their products are amazing, bee-lieve me, they are!  Seriously though, I have really dry skin especially during the winter months and their Royal Jelly Body Butter is simply scrumptious!

I was sampling this lotion in the store and I literally couldn’t stop touching myself.  Yes, a bit awkward but my skin, OMG it was SO SOFT!

The next store I am completely obsessed with is Earthbound Trading Company.  It’s quite the experience, especially if you are a yogi like me.  Loved everything and I actually had a hard time leaving the store.

I bought a pretty, flowy dress, a warm poncho, some jewelry for myself and my girls and earrings for my sons girlfriend.  I absolutely loved their dreamcatchers but decided to hold off on buying one.  If you’ve been following my blog you may already know that I really enjoying crafting and DIY projects and this dreamcatcher was no exception.

So preparing for this project I realized that I had almost everything I needed to create my own version of a boho chic dreamcatcher, except for the doily.  I needed a large doily to fit my 18-inch embroidery hoop and much to my delight, I found the perfect one at JoAnn that fit perfectly into my hoop and my vision of neutral, warm tones.

I didn’t take pictures while making this, but there are lots of tutorials online and the possibilities are endless!  Here’s  my version…..

Here’s a list of what I used for materials:

  • 18 inch embroidery hoop
  • Large doily
  • Chunky yarn
  • Hot glue gun
  • Embroidery needle and thread (to attach doily to hoop)
  • Wooden beads
  • Assorted feathers
  • Scrap fabric
  • String beads

The most time-consuming part was wrapping the hoop with yarn but the rest worked up pretty quickly.

So what do you think?   I really love it and will certainly be making more of these in the near future.

Thanks for visiting today.
