TRY OR BUY?

TRY OR BUY- Dreamcatcher (2)

I love crafting. Ask anyone who really knows me. Actually, ask anyone who even vaguely knows me. I love making things. It soothes me and makes me feel creatively productive at the same time. I have gone through all sorts of crafting phases over the years: making jewelry, painting, card-making, candles, you name it. Admittedly, I have more yarn-stuffs than any 27 year old really needs and I may or may not have a craft drawer that looks like an episode of Hoarders.

Anyway, if you can DIY it, I have tried it. So I figured I'd start a series that highlights these projects. Even the absolute FAILS (like the time I tried to reupholster my couch with nothing but an inflated sense of self-assuredness and a hand-held staple gun).

First up... dreamcatchers. They lend perfectly to any boho interior and are thought to absorb bad dreams. I wouldn't say I'm superstitious, but I'll take all the help I can get. SO... on my latest craft binge I set out to make my own. It definitely took some time, but I was surprised by how easy and inexpensive the process was. I bought an embroidery hoop, a wooden dowel, some feathers and used some yarn I already had . I enjoyed it so much that I even made two!

TRY or BUY??

Dreamcatchers are a definite TRY for me. There are tons of tutorials online and honestly, it would be tough to totally mess these up. The coolest part about TRYING this is that you can completely customize it to reflect your personal style and match your interior. If you decide to BUY, I'd recommend checking out Etsy (which is essentially a TRY done by someone else).
