Making a Dreamcatcher
August 2, 2005
Here is an easy to make, beaded dreamcacher.
- 8 inch diameter hoop
- 25 yards cotton yarn
- 1 package beads large enough to string the cotton yarn through
- 1 needle
- Thread yarn through needle, placing it halfway between the ends.
- Tie the 2 ends of yarn together so you have a double strand of yarn.
- Use a slipknot to tie the knotted end of the yarn to the hoop. (Don't worry about the stray end of the knot - it'll be taken care of at the end.)
- Thread 3-4 beads, pull yarn tight, and knot on the opposite side of the hoop.
- Repeat step 3 ten times, or until the dreamcatcher's web pattern is pleasing to you.
- Do NOT cut the yarn after the final knot!
- Wrap the remaining yarn around the hoop until it is covered.
- Knot securely, then knot again 2 - 6 inches from the final knot. Cut off ends and hang your dream catcher over your bed to catch your dreams!

Add a nice decor touch to you room/home with a custom dreamcatcher. Don't have an embroidery hoop on hand? No problem, you can use plant wire or any sturdy gauge wire and then hand form the wire into a circular shape.
