★☆ DIY - Dreamcatcher (+BONUS - D.i.a. storage box)

French Gals, You can find the french version on GalsGalsRevolution. Check it out & Comment.





Spring is back, I take my gyaru inspiration in indian style. I want to wear feathers, a stetson and a destroy jeans. My first craving : A dreamcatcher. 

I find on Youtube a wonderfull tutorial in french about to make dreamcatcher earring. I liked the same but a necklace. So, I do myself a necklace dreamcatcher. [French - Chaine "Détail qui tue" par Isnata]



◥ DIFFICULTY - ★☆☆☆☆

It's very easy and fast. I found the materials at a supermarket or available on arts&crafts webshop. (or Ebay)

◥ MATERIALS


→ Ring with a big diameter [Recycling : You can choose a old plastic bracelet as me]
→ Jump ring,
→ Feathers,
→ Flat Nose Pliers,
→ Connectors,
→ Pearls,
→ Reel of thick thread,
→ Reel of thin thread,
→ Cord for the necklace [Recycling : I use an old cord belt]




◥ TIMES
45 minutes max.




◥ STEP ONE - LINING OF THE RING

You'll need big ring : It's the base of your dreamcatcher. With your cotton thread thick, wind it around of the ring. Put some points of glue, every 2 cm.



◥ STEP TWO - COBWEB
You'll need to see the video above. It's more easier if you watch the technique of weaving. You'll need, the thin threads and a needle. In the picture, I add three perles during the weaving. You can add all what you want.


◥ STEP THREE - NECKLACE

I wanted to keep the american indian theme. I use a beige cord as a necklace. I do a knot with the big ring in the middle of the cord.
I put some pearls in the two extremity in same times. I've the impression to have just one cord at the base.



◥ STEP FOUR - FEATHERS


I put two types of pearls on the feathers. After that, I use a connector and I close it. You can add a point of glue on the extremity. 
You can make a cascade of feathers ; add little rings. [Like the picture]



I use a jump ring and put a couple of feathers on the principal ring. [Brown & Striped feather]. I place, four couple of feathers on the principal ring.


The Result !


In few times, you've a pretty & cheap necklace. I think to do another big dreamcatcher. If you've question about the technique or what do you want... I'll show you some coordinations with this necklace. Comment & Show me your "dreamcatcher" !
"Do it Yourself !"

◥ BONUS - D.I.A. STORAGE BOX

In my dressing, I found a lot of shopping bag from Shibuya 109. I love all of them, I don't whant to throw. I've a d.i.a. shopping bag very damaging... I've a solution


I use an old box of protein, glue and my damaging shopping bag. I'll create a storage box to my brushes and lipstick. *Happy me*
Firstly, I unstick the label of the protein box. I'll use it to have the measurement and cut the d.i.a. shopping bag.



Take a utility knife and cut out around the label. I place the label in the middle to have the "d.i.a." design brand.
Last step, put glue on all of the back of your shopping bag piece. 
Don't forget the corners. Stick the piece on aroud the box...    

You're done ! It's free and you've a "bling bling" storage box.



Kisses & Hugs,

C'est marrant moi ce sont les sacs soleil sucré que j'ai en masse. Ca serait pas bête de les recycler ainsi! Franchement elles claquent des boites à pinceaux D.I.A ♥
Sinon pour le diy, ça m'a donné envie de faire le mien mais je sais pas si j'aurais le courage de le faire *feignasse* C'est super joli en plus!
