It’s no secret that I love all things boho. So to kick off the season of love, I wanted to share a combination of two things that always make my heart skip a beat—boho and a DIY project for the nursery. Get your crafting tools ready because you are going to love this project.
Materials: 12×12 Bamboo Hoop, Solid Cotton Fabric (I used white but you can change up the color), Cricut Maker, Standard Cricut Cutting mat, (2) colors of Cricut iron-on material (you pick the colors!), Twine, Felt Square (you pick the colors you want) and Cricut Easy Press
Follow the link to our Boho Dreamcatcher design in Cricut’s Design Space. You can customize the size and colors of your dreamcatcher. If you are feeling really creative, you can also change up the text and write your own saying.
Once you have your design formatted, click “Go.” Be sure to check the mirror image box for iron-on. Load your iron-on face down onto a regular or light grip mat and set to the iron-on setting. You will have to switch out the mat for the second iron-on color.
Once both cuts are complete, carefully remove all the excess vinyl using your Cricut weeding tool to reveal your design.
Next, lay the iron-on design onto the fabric, lining side up. Be sure to lay out the iron-on material exactly how you want the final design to look. Once you apply heat, the design can’t be changed.
Use the Cricut Easy Press to transfer the iron-on to the fabric. Follow the iron-on instructions that are found on the roll of material. You’ll want to set your temperature and timer to the recommended setting. This will vary depending on the type of iron-on material you pick for the project. If you do not have an Easy Press, you can use a standard iron, just be sure to follow the instructions on the package.
Next you are going to want to cut out the hearts using the rotary blade. Follow the link to our Hearts link in Cricut’s Design Space. You can make as many or as few hearts as you want to complete your dreamcatcher. You can also customize the sizes of the hearts to best fit your style.
Follow the same cutting steps listed above, just be sure to select “Felt” and switch out the fine point blade for the rotatory blade. Also be sure to use the Fabric Grip Mat from Cricut
Once all your hearts are cut, use the twine to connect them to the bamboo hoop. We added some pom-poms to the design. You can purchase the pom-poms at a craft store or make your own.
You’ll want to cut away the extra fabric to fit your bamboo hoop and seal it with a glue gun.
Once you have all hearts attached you can then secure the fabric inside the bamboo hoop. It is important to wait to secure the fabric until after you have added the hearts.
