DIY Dream Catcher

The sacred native american dream catcher is used to protect children from nightmares but can now also be used as a beautiful decorative item. Personally I really love them when they are made in exceptionally bright colors rather than browns and blacks. 


Stuff you need:
Wire
Masking tape
Fabric
String
Lace Doily
Feathers

1. Cut a long piece of wire and bend it into a ring. Wrap the ring in masking tape.


2. Again cover the ring in a strip of fabric.


3. Attach the doily to the ring by weaving it around the sides using string.


4. Tie 3 strips of string to the dream catcher and tie feathers to them.


Now let your dream catcher protect you from all night mares :)

I'm in love with this! I've always thought that dream catchers would have been extremely difficult to make- but this post proves it easy! I love the unique twist (using lace instead of string)as it really adds a sense of individuality- making it your own, personalised dream catcher. I apologise for not reading your blog as frequently as I would like too :( I miss you and your inspiration, maybe I'll go back to my blog! xx
