My mom made me a dream catcher when I was a child and I still have it to this day. There is something magical about them and I’ve been seeing a resurgence of them lately. I decided to make a modern day version of a dream catcher using bits and pieces I had kicking around in my craft closet. The end result is a boho piece with a little edge and a touch of rustic.
A metal ring
A hot glue
A wishbone shaped stick
Miscellaneous items: chain, twine, cord, ribbon, fabric or leather scraps and jewellery findings
STEP 1: Take the waxed cord and tie a knot around the metal ring base. Start tightly wrapping the cord around the metal ring until it’s fully covered. Leave a little loop with the waxed cord to make it easy to hang once completed.
STEP 2: Place the wishbone shaped stick on top of the ring and secure it to the ring using an x-pattern with the the waxed cord where the two meet. Secure with a knot.
STEP 3: This is the part where you can have fun and get creative. Tie several strands of fabric, leather, cord, chain etc. to the ring. Play around with pattern and different lengths. I glued jewellery findings and feathers to the ends of my strands. I also tied a few knots in key places to add texture.
