spring is so in the air! can you feel it? something about the impending sunny weather is really bringing out our inner flower child. we are digging on anything and everything earthy, flowing, feathery, and ethereal. and nothing encompasses “love-in” more than dream catchers!

you need: 

~thread

~a twig from your yard (about a foot long)

~ feathers (your local craft store will sell packages in a plethora of pretty colors!)

here’s how:

this project was so super simple.  cut a few pieces of thread in various lengths.  tie feathers along each string making sure to double knot the thread around the stem of the feather.  don’t worry too much about evenly spacing the feathers.  the more random, the better your dream catcher will look in the end! now loop each feather-covered thread around the twig and tie securely.  once again, don’t worry about evenly spacing the thread. cut a longer piece of thread, tie it to either end of the twig, and use this loop to hang your new so dreamy dream catcher!

sweet dreams! xo. Lexi and Lo

get hung up

a knotted pile of necklaces, a crazed heap of scarves, or a closet full of hoodies that are acting as floor covering can all be filed under “mildly annoying things that are happening in my bedroom”. fortunately, we have a super cute, terribly easy solution for you.

i was thrifting in Michigan a few weeks ago and picked up these cool doorknobs and doorknob face plates. i handed them over to lo, who grabbed some paint, some epoxy, and turned these discarded pieces into a really adorable way to hang whatever it is you need to hang. i found these at a “junk” store, but you can pick things like this up at salvage places (check out salvage one in Chicago if you have a chance…it’s dreamy). the epoxy for attaching the knobs to the plates can be found at any hardware store.

try making a bunch of these and hanging them in a row- instant coat rack! have fun, try something new, and just don’t epoxy your fingers together. have a great weekend darlings!
