Dream Catcher

In Native American culture, a dream catcher is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which a loose net or web is woven. The dream catcher is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.
To me a dream catcher is something pretty to hang on my wall.
So I made one myself.

It was really simple and a great gift idea. Each one is unique and nearly anything can be added to it i.e photos, ribbons, buttons.
I started off using and empty sellotape role and wrapping pretty wool around it.
The bigger the circle the better as it will spread the feathers out. I made some sort of  a net in the centre of both circles and attached feathers as so. I connected both using plaited wool.

Hang it over your bed or somewhere in your room to get rid of bad dreams!

I really love dream catchers and all things crafty. If you've made anything like this comment or add a link if you have a picture of it.

As you can see I have a wool collection because of the many times I've tried knitting. I've never been very succesful at it but this year I might give it another shot... maybe.
Happy Tuesday!


  1. I want one , it looks really cool! I HATE knitting, we did that for 6 weeks in D.T at school and I was the only one who still didn't know how to do it :(


  2. Knitting isn't that bad... well after 6 years I still havn't mastered it! So I know how you fell about still not being able to do it. What's D.T??

    1. Usually its Design and Technology but our school does Design and Textiles. Which basically is learning how to sow,diffrent stitches,knitting, making dresses and stuff like that. :)


  3. We don't have that at our school :(
    In first and second year (Year 7 and 8 in England, and in America seventh Grade and eighth grade (I think - I don't understand the US system!)) we don't even do Home Ec, but you can take it in third year so I'm doing an afterschool Fabric Skills class next year!! :D :D
    The dream catcher, by the way, is beautiful. Where did you get the feathers?

    1. Amm... some art shop I'm not exactly sure. Had them for ages. Thanks :D x
