Bohemian Dream Catcher

I saw an adorable dream catcher recently on instagram via a gal I follow at HouseofHawthorne.  She has lots of bohemian things.  I wanted to make a few artsy piece for the walls of my craft room, and this one (modeled as close to hers as I could make it) was right up my alley.  I was able to use yarn scraps to put this together.  The only thing I purchased was the hoop.  If I were patient enough I would have held off for a thrift store find, but patience isn't a virtue I've acquired just yet.  
 I took an old sheet and I tore a strip which I wrapped around the embroidery hoop.
 I then wrapped string back and forth so it looks a bit like a dream catcher.  I used my yard scraps to make some tassels.  I posted a quick tutorial on youtube on how to do that if you don't have a favorite way to make tassels already.  I tied on the tassels to misc spots.
Last up I tied random ribbon, lace and and trimming across the middle and I dangled it down both sides. I love the way it turned out and I can't wait to branch out and see what else I can create using this same technique!
