Hi everyone! It’s Ashley and I’m here today to share a trend inspired home decor piece with you using the gorgeous Moonstruck collection. I love how current trends always seem to pop up in the paper crafting world and dreamcatchers have been making their way into a lot of projects. I thought it would be fun to incorporate the trend into my home decor by creating an embroidery hoop dreamcatcher that’s now hanging above our daughter’s bed.
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.
This Dreamcatcher design could also be easily translated to your other projects! Give it a try on your next layout or card!
