Steps:

  1. I cut an 8 inch strip of 16 gauge craft wire.
  2. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - cut a piece of wire
     
  3. I cut 30 strands of 3.5" strips of yarn. Note: it is up to you and how big/small you want your feather-like yarn to be.
  4. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - cut your yarn pieces for the feather
     
  5. Place your craft wire on top of your yarn and tie the yarn onto the wire.
  6. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - tie the yarn to the wire

  7. Once you have all your yarn tied on to the wire, move them closer together. Optional: Trim off excess so the yarn is more even.
  8. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - slide the knotted yarn together

  9. (I cut the side of my paper bowl so it would be easier to dip my yarn in). You will need equal parts of mod podge and water, just a thin layer will do.
  10. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - remove a section of the paper bowl
     
    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - mix a thin solution of mod podge and water
     
  11. Dip your yarn/craft wire into bowl of mod podge/water solution. Then place it on an oven pan covered with foil and pour more solution over so it is drenched. Then pick up the yarn feather and allow the yarn to shape into a feather. Let the yarn feather dry in a downwards position overnight. Once the yarn is dried, you can finish shaping it.
  12. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - dip yarn in mod podge and lay on foil covered pan
     
    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - saturate well

  13. In the meantime, I traced a CD on to the piece cardboard and cut out the center with scissors and an X-acto knife.
  14. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - trace around a CD onto the cardboard
     
    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - cut out circle
     
    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - draw a second circle inside
     
    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - cut away the center
     
  15. Tie a knot with yarn around the paper ring and wrap until completely covered in yarn.
  16. Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - knot the end of your yarn around the cardboard

    Recycled Cardboard Ring and Yarn Dreamcatcher - continue wrapping the wire to create the
     
  19. Cut 3 strands of yarn 12" long and braid together, then knot together to be able to hang the dream catcher. You can also just tie a simple knot if you'd like too, but I ended up liking the braided look.
