last week while banjo was napping, i indulged ivy's crafting desires on a morning basis. oh, it felt so lovely! (laying on a quilt in the backyard crafting is so much better than house cleaning) i'm sad at how busy life feels so often, and how with three little people i so rarely sit and do simple crafts like this anymore - like ivy and i used to do all the time when it was just us.
she has been wanting to make a dreamcatcher for such a long time, so after some scurrying around the yard for twigs, and a quick hunt for a video tutorial for the string tying bit, we were all ready!
twigs, wire, wire cutter, scissors, embroidery thread (not pictured, we originally tried with dental floss as suggested in the above video, but ivy didn't like the plastic-y look. the thread worked fine and looked much nicer!), beads and feathers.
