DIY: Dreamcatcher Necklace


Hi! Today, I am going to teach you how to make one of the trendiest accessories at the moment- a dream catcher necklace. I've been seeing these all over tumblr, chictopia and etsy. These necklaces are so chic and effortlessly boho; I love them!

Level of difficulty: medium difficulty

Cost: less than $10

Supplies: hot glue gun, thread, needle, suede cord or another type of string, 3-5
boho beads, wire and a feather.

How to: First gather all of your supplies. Next cut your wire and bend it so that it is shaped like a circle. After that, plug your hot glue gun in. When the glue is hot, wrap the suede cord around the wire and occasionally glue parts of the cord down. Once you have finished wrapping the cord around the circle-shaped wire, thread your needle. Then sew your dream catcher design on. Need inspiration? Check out this dream catcher. Once you have sewn your design on, cut out a long piece of cord and tie it to the dream catcher. This will be your necklace. After that, sew your feather to the bottom of the dream catcher and add a string of beads. Voila! Instant boho luxe.
