This bright green wool is possibly the most challenging craft ingredient I’ve ever encountered!  When I first saw it in my Bostik craft box, I was a bit stumped.  But then Beth suggested that we make dreamcatchers.

When she was little I would hang them in her bedroom to scare aware the bad dreams and catch the good!  She still has the little pink net that I bought her when she was a toddler.   But I knew that home made dream catchers would be even more special and all we would need to add was a couple of embroidery hoops.

As you can see, Beth’s adopted a freestyle approach to her net, but if you’d like a more structured look, just follow the instructions below.

NB: Please excuse the marks on the coffee table – it’s waiting to be sanded back and waxed :-S

Method:

  • Separate the two parts of the hoop.
  • Cut a length of yarn about 1m long and tie to the central circle using knots around 3cm apart.

  • Now do the same again but instead of tying to the hoop, tie to the first row of yarn.

  • Continue to add new layers incorporating beads every now and again.

    How cool, such a cute little project. I have a gorgeous dream catcher on my wall, I wonder if I could persuade my teenager to make one with me 😉 Thanks for the tutorial, I’ll pass it on to my crafty friends.

    This is a cute little project. I must add. Utterly beautiful. I was thinking of Dream Catchers the other day, when I was writing in my dream diary.
    I always use to get told to record my bad dreams and then they won’t come true and put up a dream catcher by your bed, to capture the nightmares 🙂
