To make our dreamcatcher you will need:

  • wood embordery hoop
  • leather lace
  • scissors
  • 3 to 4 feathers
  • beads

How to make a dreamcatcher

Step 1- You will use the inside of the hoop,the one without the metal.

Step 2-Take the lace tie one end to the hoop.Start winding the lace around the hoop. Create the pattern as you go.

Step 3-Put one bead on the lace when you are about half way done.This will be the center that catches the bad dreams.

Step 4-Finish looping and weaving the lace until you get the look you want. To create a pattern around the center of your dreamcatcher weave the lace in a circular pattern through the middle of your dreamcatcher.

Step 5-Take 3(or 4) 5 inch pieces of lace and tie around the bottom of your loop . Thread the beads you selected onto the pieces of lace. Then take a feather and tie it to the bottom of the lace.If your bead hole is big enough you can slide the bead onto the top of you feather and hide the knots.

Step 6- Take a piece of wire or the lace and tie a loop to the top for your hanger. Now you can have peaceful dreams.
