DIY dream catcher – secure the tip between the rings
Take apart the two hoops of the embroidery hoop and place the lace fabric inside so that it is stretched. Now you can center your chosen pattern for the DIY dream catcher and then pin and pull the outer hoop in place. Now it’s time to trim off the excess lace fabric on the tire as much as possible.
For the dream catcher, stretch the tip and glue it if necessary
