helloo! Today I am going to teach you how to make a dreamcatcher. Before starting I know there is A LOT OF pictures. It's because I wanted it to be easier for you to follow the tutorial steps and understand clearly. Hope you enjoy this DIY dreamcatcher :)

Step 1: Materials

  • some feather
  • some beads
  • needle and thread
  • a bracelet or anything circle
  • a thicker thread

    *if you are wondering the bracelet that I used was 7 cm wide and the thread that I used to wrap around was 160 cm.

Step 2: Wrapping

Basically wrap the thread around the bracelet.Double secure it in the end.

Step 3: Loops

Start from wherever you want and secure it.Then all you gonna do is loops.When you get to the end secure it.It has a heptangular shape if you want it to be more detailed you can make a octagonal or decagonal shape.

Step 4:

Continue doing the loops.I always make a second loop each time to secure it better.

Step 5:

Step 6:

When you get to the end secure it and continue making the loops.

Step 7: Final Look

When you're done it should look like this

Step 8: Feathers

Step 9: Done!

This is the result.If you want it to look more detailed make a octagon or a decagon when you are making the base.Hope you enjoyed :))

This is so cool! Can't wait to try it, although I'm planning to make it a fair bit smaller. Do you have any handy tips for when I make it smaller? Thanks heaps, Charlotte.

My sister just sent this to me.. Can't wait to try it!! I have always wanted to learn how to do this.. What do you mean by 10 points or 7 points??

Traditionally the dream catcher is anchored to the ring at 10 points , uses a willow branch and is not wrapped with yarn.

How do I figure the 10 points and what's wrong with yarn?

Actually 10 is incorrect. 7 or 8 points are the usual number of points.

I was wondering where. you got the number 10 from.A tradional dream catcher has 7-13 points with 7 representing the 7 nations or the 7 grandfathers. 8 is also common and reptesents the 8 legs of the spider. So saying that 10 points is somewhat untrue. Also although red willow is the preferred branch to make one, grape vine is acceptable as it is naturally growing.

I was wondering where you got the number 10 from. I've never heard of that pecific number because it is an odd number for the Native Americans.

Looks great, but you made a "Nightmares inducer" instead of a "Dream catcher"

This is perfect! I have a large metal ring, some hemp rope, and candy beads and I've been looking for a good dreamcatcher tutorial. Thank you so much for this. :)

Do you mean candy beads like the kind you can buy on cheap elastic and eat as you walk along or sit reading or whatever? Dream catchers are a lot of work for something that will not last. If bugs or mice don't get to them, the kids will. They've always been my kids' favorite candy and I like them myself. I'd suggest glass, wood, clay,or even paper or plastic if you plan to use beads. (There are youtube videos on how to make paper beads. We have a lot of fun making them.)

very nice work. i also try it

This is so cool to do as a school project I love this project so much!!!!!!!!!!

Oh I'm sorry, It says! This is the best tutorial I've found, about to try it :)

How long should the piece of thread be?
