DIY – How to Make Dream Catcher Earrings

These dream catcher earrings have a great bohemian, free-spirited feel about them. They look so intricate, and unique and would match so many different outfits. I imagine these with a pair of jeans and a stylish top.

Materials

  • Hoop earrings
  • 1,5m piece of thread
  • Large seed beads
  • Small seed beads (size 10)
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Charms or feathers to decorate

Directions

  1. Gather supplies: a pair of hoop earrings; 1.5M piece of thread; large seed beads; small seed beads (size 10); scissors; a needle; charms or feathers to decorate.
  2. Tie one end of the thread to the hoop as close to the clasp as possible.
  3. Slide two seed beads all the way down to the frame of the hoop.
  4. Bring the needle underneath the frame of the hoop earring.
  5. Wrap the thread around the frame of the hoop and push the needle down through the second seed bead.
  6. Add a single bead onto the thread and push it down.
  7. Repeat step 4.
  8. Wrap the thread around the hoop as before and push the needle back through the bead you’ve just added.
  9. Continue adding single beads the same way until you’ve made a full circle.
  10. Pull the thread across the hoop and weave it up through the first seed bead.
  11. Wrap the thread around the frame of the hoop and push the needle down through the same bead.
  12. Pull the thread across the hoop again skipping several beads underneath and push the needle through the 4th or 5th bead.
  13. Wrap the thread around the frame of the hoop and go back through the same bead.
  14. Repeat steps 12 and 13 until you’ve made a full circle. Make sure that you don’t come out through the last seed bead. It’s OK if you come out through the second to last bead or if there is a gap of up to 2 beads.
  15. Wrap the thread around the segment of the thread above.
  16. Pull the thread in a clockwise direction making sure that the loop is in the middle of the segment above.
  17. Move right and repeat step 15.
  18. Pull the thread again as in step 16.
  19. Keep repeating these steps to complete this row.
  20. Continue weaving the web until there is only a small opening in the middle.
  21. Add a small seed bead to each segment on the last but one row.
  22. After that add one more row.
  23. When you’ve made a full circle, tie a knot at the base of the last small seed bead.
  24. Push the needle through the seed bead to conceal the knot and cut the thread as close to the bead as possible so that the thread end is not visible.
  25. Pull the other thread end through the large seed bead directly below and cut it as close to the bead as possible.
  26. Attach the charms or feathers to the frame of the hoop.
  27. Try them on and enjoy your new look!
