Make Your Own Dreamcatcher
This post is brought to you by the lovely Sierra.
Hello beautiful soul.
Today we are making dream catchers. As you can tell by the pictures, this is NOT a traditional Native American dream catcher. Because they are meditative in a way to make, I like to call it dream weaving when I make one. I think of something I want to manifest in my life and as I make one I meditate on that and how I can bring it about. These are super easy to make and I'm excited to share it with you. First you need to gather your materials:
- Metal Ring (in the US you can find these in gold and silver in craft shops like Joann's and Michael's)
- Embroidery floss (optional) in a different color from the yarn
- Beads (I used pony beads, but you can use any kind of bead that the embroidery floss goes through)
There are some variations to these materials. Instead of the metal ring you can use a round embroidery hoop. Instead of using embroidery floss you can just use the yarn for the whole thing. I highly suggest getting a ring that's large enough that the skein of yarn can go through, this makes things a heck of a lot easier.
First thing to do is start your knot on the metal ring. So take a long piece of yarn from the yarn skien (don't cut it off of the skien) and tie it to the ring. Make the tail long so you can come back and tie it again to make a loop. Do not cut anything in this step!
