Step 1: Materials Needed
A key chain ring (or a shower curtain ring, whatever you have around the house)
Needle and thread
Earring thingies (You know, those little hook things)
Not seen in this picture:
Feathers (optional, of course)
Super glue (believe me, you will want this!)
Beads (also optional)
Step 2: Wrapping the ring
Step 3: Weaving the dream catcher
When you finish weaving, however, tie the thread in a secure double knot in the center, rather than letting it hang down.
I found that it is easier to create the dream catcher using needle.
After tying the knot in the middle, snip off the excess thread.
Step 4: Adding feathers (optional)
I started out by cutting lengths of thread that were twice as long as I wanted them to hang. This was so I had extra for tying knots and such. Then I took a bead (the hole has to be wide enough for your feather to fit inside) and slid the thread through it, leaving about an inch on one side and 5 on the other. Next, I covered the stalk of the feather with super glue, making sure I had something underneath so I wouldn't ruin the table. Before the glue got tacky (you have about 5 seconds), I inserted the feather through the bead on the side with the shorter end of string. Make sure you don't slide the string out! I then used the superglue on either side of the bead, just to be safe. After the glue tried, I cut off the extra inch of thread on the feather end.
Now in order to attach your feather to the ring, thread your string through a needle. Then, slide your needle under the yarn on the ring and pull the thread through until the feather dangles at your desired length. Tie a double knot and cut the excess string.
Repeat this whole process as many times as you choose.
