Easy Yarn Dream Catcher

Easy Yarn Dream CatcherMy oldest son has been asking for a dream catcher for quite a while.  So I decided to make him one with items I already had.  If this keeps him from coming in to my room at 3 A.M. I will be very happy.  It doesn’t happen often, but man, I really don’t like getting up at 3 A.M.

Dream catcher made from yarn and embroidery ringJust grab one embroidery hoop, some yarn and scissors.  I enjoy yarn.  Especially when it comes with a few colors in it.  I don’t know why that makes me so happy.  Maybe I feel like I’m getting a rad deal.  But this one certainly got me because of the black and white combo.

Easy Peace Sign Yarn Dream CatcherI liked how it looked with the yarn just hanging off the bottom of the hoop but decided to add the peace sign.

Ninja's Bedroom with Dream CatcherI couldn’t wait to show my son when he got home from school.  He loved it.  And then promptly moved on to his swords.

Popsicle Stick Heart Peace Sign

heart shaped peace sign out of popsicle sticksSo I fell in love with these geometric hearts that Jaren made.  I had to make them.  But I decided to change it a bit and make it in to a peace sign.  I am in love with how it turned out.  Go see her tutorial here.  And pay attention to where she says to glue at a 90 degree angle.  I totally didn’t read it first and came out with several wonky hearts.  This is a totally acceptable way for hearts to live on after Valentine’s day.

peace sign for cool kid's roomIt’s new home is in my son’s bedroom.  I love how it looks but he is eager to color it with markers.  And I’m going to let him because I want to encourage his creativity.  Even though this is right across from my bedroom door and I’m going to have to look at it.  It’s fine.  I’ll be fine.
