Doilyshould be an inch or two smaller than the hoop
Beads or pearls
Hot glue gun
Foam core board or cork board
Glue gun finger caps
I suggest using a piece of foam core or cork, something that a thumb tack can be pushed into. This is handy for holding your doily in place while you work.
Place doily in the center of the core board and push thumb tack into the center (mine is a button thumb tack, not just a button). Place the embroidery hoop over the top of the doily so it’s in the center.
Gently stretch the doily to the left and the right and glue over the edges of the embroidery hoop.
Now stretch the top and bottom in the same fashion so that you have glued the top, bottom and both sides.
Continue stretching the rest of the doily over the embroidery hoop edges until it is completely covered. Remove the thumb tack.
Place the outer ring of the embroidery hoop over the inner hoop/doily and tighten.
Choose lace, or in my case some tassel fringe, and glue it around the outer edge of the embroidery hoop.
Cut lace ribbon into different lengths. Glue strips of lace ribbon from the bottom of the dreamcatcher.
Using finger caps will protect your fingers from hot glue burns. Use them to glue the ribbon in place and hold it in place until it dries.
To make tassels, wrap yarn around four fingers several times.
Slide it off your hand and tie a piece of yarn around the bunch.
Cut through one side of the loop to crate the fringed tassel.
Tie the tassel to a piece of twine and glue in in place with the lace ribbon.
Glue beads or pearls over the ribbon edges along the bottom of the hoop.
Hang with command strips or by hanging on a nail.
