Step 1: Materials Needed

Picture of Materials Needed
For this project, you're going to need the following things:

A key chain ring (or a shower curtain ring, whatever you have around the house)
Needle and thread
Yarn
Scissors
Pliers/wire cutters
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

First, what you're going to want to do is wrap your yarn tightly around your ring. Make sure it is tight!! To start, I wrapped the yarn around itself so it wouldn't slip.  Then I finished it off by using a needle to pull the excess yarn through one of the loops I had already created to secure it in place.  Snip off the excess yarn.

Step 3: Weaving the dream catcher

To start your dream catcher, tie a length of thread to your ring.  For more detailed instructions on how to create the dream catcher,  see here http://www.nativetech.org/dreamcat/dreminst.html

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.
