Hello there!
Today I am at Connect4sale blog to share the Dream catcher tutorial.
Dream Catcher Sometimes referred to as “Sacred Hoops,” Ojibwe dream catchers were hung above the beds of sleeping children to protect them from bad dreams and evil spirits. Legends held that the spider web design of the dream catcher would allow good dreams to pass through and float down the hanging beads and feathers to sleeping children.
Ok, now Lets create one!

Materials

• Dream Catcher rings.
• Color Threads
• Pearls
• Crystals
• Feathers
• Flowers /Tassels/Chipboard Embelishments (optional)
• Scissors
• Liquid Glue/Hot Glue gun

Start by tying a knot at one end of the ring and apply few drops of glue to set it in place.

Place the thread at a specific distance from the first knot to start making the loop.

Now take the thread inside out and tighten it.

Place the thread again in a way it is at the same distance from the first loop.

Continue the pattern to make first round of the loop.

After the first round is created , continue the same pattern to make the second round of loop.

Continue the same method so that we get a webbed pattern.

Now we have completed three rounds of loop and lets start with another colour of thread.

We can add pearls and crystals as per our creativity.

Continue the same method of looping while adding crystals.

I have created three rounds of the second colours using pearls.

Now start with the third colour of thread and add another colour pearl .

Here is the completed Ring . Now lets add threads to hang feathers and crystals.

Take threads of different lengths and tie at the base of the ring.

Add pearls and feathers as per color choice and creativity.

Here it is! Dream catcher is done. Itsn’t it beautiful?

I have created another one too . Have a look!

Hope this tutorial was easy . Try creating one for yourself.
Happy Crafting!
