How to Make Your DIY Leaf Dream Catcher
Start by placing your leaves on a clean flat surface and painting stripes, polka dots and bold color blocking patterns on them. It’s best to paint on the leaves before they dry out too much, as they become more brittle when dry.
Using two colors of yarn, wrap the embroidery hoop. I used a few small dots of hot glue to keep the yarn in place.
Then, tie the leaves to your hoop at various lengths. I added in a few other ribbons and tassels to mix up the textures and patterns a bit.
