This sea glass dream catcher would be perfect for a child’s bedroom, or if you decorate with a coastal theme. This would also look great on a covered porch or patio.

I’m sharing this pretty dream catcher as part of the Create With Me challenge hosted by Samantha of Little Bits of Home.  

This is a monthly challenge where, at the start of each month, we ask YOU to vote on what material we should use in our next Create With Me Challenge.

Then we share our projects using the material you voted for. It’s a really fun collaboration that I always look forward to.

For this month’s challenge you voted for Embroidery Hoops. If you have visited here before you  know I use embroidery hoops in lots of craft projects.

I just shared an embroidery hoop bud vase windchime here

Don’t you just love when you don’t have to buy anything?

This can also be made with sea shells. The next time you are at the beach keep an eye out for sea shells and sea glass.

There are so many crafty projects you can make. Here is how I made this sea glass dream catcher:

Supplies For Sea Glass Dream Catcher

Cover both hoops with scrap fabric of your choice. I used an ivory muslin. Then attach the 4″ hoop to the 10″ hoop using embroidery floss.

Tie embroidery floss to the sea glass and attach around the inner hoop. Then make 4-5 varying lengths of sea glass and hang from the larger hoop.

Finally, attach a large sea shell using hot glue to the center of the 4″ hoop.
