I’ve lately become intrigued by dream catchers – and have wanted to take a stab at making my own version of the traditional Native American emblem. That said, I had very little confidence in my ability to weave the beautiful, intricate patterns found in a traditional dream catcher. This minimalist, modern take requires very little skill – and while it may not be very effective at catching dreams, it sure is pretty!
12 ” Gold Macrame Ring
White Suede Lace
Jute Twine & White String
Feathers (not pictured)
Scissors & Hot Glue Gun
Using a dab of hot glue to secure the suede at your starting point, begin to wrap the suede lace tightly around the ring.
I decided to go about 3/4 of the way around the ring with the suede. I also decided to paint my nails for the first time in approximately eight months, so… yay me.
Before I glued down the end, I strung on some beads, and arranged them in random places around the pattern. A dab of hot glue under the bottom bead keeps them from sliding around too much.
Next, I looped on some jute twine and white string, in alternating order, on the bottom of my ring.
The whole thing took about thirty minutes to make – and I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result!
Here she is hanging over our headboard – ready to catch a dream or two!
Are you a fan of dream catchers? I’ve never had one before, but I’m definitely enjoying this one!
