I found this lovely idea on pinterest. Just played around a bit and used the lining to a dress coat with ribbons. But unfortunately it didnt weather well outdoors....
These dream catchers were next. They are gigantic! I used an old plastic patio top (with out glass) and a nylon string on one. Then the other I used wild grapevine and a jupe string. Both have painted sticks as feathers. 
This little guy is made from my collection of round things. (Brass lined) I used a copper wire for the webbing, stained glass as feathers, and bits of broken jewelry. Im excited to see how all the different metals  weather out doors.

A progression of dream catchers. I found this super cute idea on pinterest. After realizing it just wasn't working well as garden decor. I thought, What if it was gigantic or metal! A Haha Any excuse to tweek or twist an idea to better fit your needs is acceptable in my book. That is how art progresses. 

These are a few different ideas i'm playing around with to create a more durable or weather able dream catcher/sun catcher. It's still in infant stage but i'm excited to see the mix of metal patinas and glass.
