Some DIY secrets from Krista and Lauren of Southern Soiree

How to make dream catcher inspired ribbon hoops (picture above):
What you’ll need: various sizes of metal rings (Hobby Lobby has them), twine or yarn, assortment of ribbons and feathers, & scissors.

Tie a knot with the yarn on the ring and wrap until the entire ring is covered then tie another knot to secure. Take the yarn and crisscross it through the center of the ring to create the pattern. Tie to secure. Cut strips of ribbon and tie to the bottom of the ring.

Seafoam Painted Glass:

What you’ll need: collect glass or acrylic vases, candle holders, drinking glasses from Goodwill or a thrift store. You will also need food coloring, a paint brush, a bowl, & Elmer’s glue.

Combine food coloring and Elmer’s glue in a bowl. Amount of food coloring depends on how intense you want the shade. Using long smooth strokes, paint the items. I recommend practicing first as it takes a little skill to prevent bubbling and streaks!
