DIY How-To: Pastel Holiday Dreamcatcher Wreath

I am not typically a crafty person. ESPECIALLY during the craziness that is the holiday season. So much is going on – there is so much to see and do and WRAP {which I haven’t even started yet!}! BUT I’ve been lucky enough to have some fun breaks in the Christmas season to take a moment for myself and enjoy it all.

One of those times was a few weeks ago when I crafted up a storm making this lighted winter candle holiday centerpiece. I’m proud to say it’s sitting front and center on our dining room table and it makes me happy every time I look at it!

I got to take another moment to myself this past weekend with my friends from A.C. Moore and my fellow PHL Bloggers as we all got together to do a little holiday DIY decor.

The first craft we made was this gorgeous pastel dreamcatcher wreath. I am so happy with how mine turned out – perfectly festive for the season.

The original craft looked like this – but I made mine a little more natural, with less snowflake sparkle. More of my personal aesthetic, but with any good craft, you totally make it your own and get creative!

Here’s a look at how it all went down –

We started off with two embroidery loops – a small and a large. Styrofoam was placed in four sections and glued to set the wreath. Use a ruler to measure in between the hoops so its even.

Next up we glued some white yarn to the styrofoam – hot glued a piece in the back, wrap it around until its covered and glue it again to seal it. Repeat 4x on all the styrofoam pieces.

Now its time to make the dreamcatcher portion of the wreath. We used a light pink yard and you just loop it randomly through the smaller hoop over and over again in different directions until you feel its complete.

After the dreamcatcher is made, its time to add some ornaments! This part of the craft was very time consuming. It took a while to figure out placement of each ornament to get it to stay and holding each glued piece until it was dry took time too. But this was actually the best part of the craft for me because it was the most relaxing. I could just zen out and hot glue on and on and on. I loved it.

It made it a little easier once I created a base layer of the ornaments on the bottom of the wreath and then was able to build up from there. It was one of those things where I could have kept adding and adding and adding, never to stop. But I eventually felt good about it and moved on to the next step.

Its also worth noting that I hid in a few little jingle bells behind the wreath, so it does a little jingle whenever the door opens – nice little detail I wanted to share !

The final step for me was to add the trees! Just a quick and easy little hot glue gun action and you are good to go. There is a lot you can do with this wreath to make it your own. Most of the other crafters added snowflakes in the dreamcatcher and all around – but I was happy with how this turned out on its own! Now I’m totally inspired to make a wreath for every holiday!

Here’s an up close look at my wreath in action!

Have you made any awesome holiday crafts this year? I’d love to hear about it!

Please share!
