DIY Dreamcatcher by DT Mounika


Hello Everyone, 


I am Mounika and am here today with my very first post as a DT member for Rainbow Craftykari. It is such an honour to be on the blog and I have a tutorial for you all. 

Here is what I made ... A Dreamcatcher, to catch the dreams as they flow by :)


Let's begin making the dream catcher


1. Gather all the materials mentioned in the supply list below. 

                                         
                                 

2. Take a smaller embroidery hoop and stretch a fabric in it, for the base. 


                       

3.Using a brick stencil create a background with texture paste, allow it to dry. 


                         

4. Now take a larger hoop and stretch a lace fabric. We will use this as our main base. I  applied glue on the sides to keep the lace fabric intact and not move.  


                        

5. Now go back to the smaller hoop which would have dried. Using Lindy's Sprays add colour to the brick background and dry it using a heat tool.


                       


                       

6. Next, take a sheet of white card stock and cut out multiple leaves, shape and colour them using different shades of distress inks. Attach a  thick cotton thread at the back of the leaves and add some beads into each leaf thread. 


                       

7. To make hangings for the dreamcatcher, I have cut down 1.5" strips of lace fabric on long side and then tied them to the larger hoop along with the leaves. 




                                    

8.For the sentiment, I have used an MDF embellishment.  To colour it, I first sprayed orange photo colour, once dry I added blue and yellow colours with dry stroke technique.


                                              

                                   

9. Finally, it's time to assemble everything. Using a glue gun, attach the smaller hoop onto the larger one, and then added flowers, some feathers, butterfly and the MDF sentiment and any other embellishments. Tadaaa..your dream catcher is ready!


Here are some detailed shots of my dream catcher:

Altered Pen Stand with A Card by Our Guest DT Kriti

Hello lovely crafty friends,


A very good morning to you all. Hope you all had an awesome weekend.


Do you guys have some empty food cans!! don't no what to do with it?? Do you throw it away?? Then stop thinking too much because today our Guest DT Kriti has came with awesome tutorial on recycling the cans in our Teaching and Learning Program and she has a card tutorial also. So grab your cold drinks and enjoy it.


Over to you Kriti,


Hey Everyone, 


I am so happy and excited to be a part of Rainbow Craftykari Guest Design Team member, heartiest thanks to Maninder Kaur and Rainbow Craftykari Team for this opportunity. Today, I have come up with a tutorial post for the ongoing Monthly Challenge “Revamp your Scraps”, for details HERE

 

What do you do with the cans when you are done with the food item? You probably throw them right into the recycling bin. Maybe you wait a while to accumulate a bunch before you chuck them out, or maybe you toss them every week. Either way, you are parting ways with a valuable craft supply. You can use your crafty skills to turn empty cans into all sorts of cool things! Here is my idea to get you going, you can use it to hold pens, pencils, or paint brushes.

 

Tutorial for Altering the can-

 

Firstly apply black acrylic paint on the edges. 





Take two pattern papers, 

a. One whose length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 4 inches.

b. Second whole length is equal with the height of the can and breadth approximately 2 inches less than the circumference of the can.




Firstly paste the first pattern paper and then paste the second pattern paper (don't apply the glue on the above two corners,bend them), in that way so that the first paper pop out from the second one. If I am making it too complex, refer the picture.




Leave it to dry and then let your imagination run wild with your craft stash. You can use any colour of lace, flowers, etc. I have used pink colored lace as it was going with my pattern papers.





Next I used my script stencil and made some scripts texture using modelling paste.

After the modelling paste dry I took bubble stamp and stamped on it to give a bit more contrast and to fill in a bit more of the open space.




The beauty of this project is that once you've created the basic tin, it can be then customized in any way you like, creating a totally unique finished item which perfectly reflects your individual character and tastes! The possibilities are endless, so, what will you add to yours??? Silk flowers, pearls or gems perhaps???


I have decorated it with some leaves, flowers, twine, MDF butterfly and in the last added a tag.

Tutorial for card-

-> Take a black cardstock of 4'' by 6'' size and score on 6'' side at 3''.

->Take a pattern paper of the 3-3/4'' by 2-3/4'' size (I have taken matching pattern paper as that of tin).

-> Distress the edges of the pattern paper with the distress tool (I have used scissors).

-> Adhere the pattern paper onto the black cardstock.

-> Next I made some script texture using modelling paste and script stencil. Next made some stamping using bubble stamp.

-> After that I collected some embellishments.



Adhered them onto the card and the card is ready.

Hope you liked it.
