Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Will Need:
You will need:
- A Wire Coat Hanger
- Any Material
- 2 Different Colours Of Embroidery Thread
- Thin Ribbons (I actaully used the ribbon off clothing that is on there to help hang up).
- Glass beads, Bells, Feathers and anything else that you think would go well.
Bend the Coat Hanger into a round shape, it will not be perfectly round but the material will cover most of it up.
Rip Material into Strips and then tie not to the top of the coat hanger, then wrap material around coat hanger evenly. When you run out of material use normal sticky tape to stick down and stop it from unravelling, get knew strip of material and stick end down wrap around to hide sticky tape and then continue wrapping.
Now Grab your embroidery thread and spin around coat hanger evenly spread apart. When you reach back to where you started you start to putting the thread through the past spins. As shown in the picture you loop through cotton and then pull through the next one.
The Dreamcatcher Will start to form and you can start threading on beads. (Shown in Picture 2)
When you have gone around a few times change the cotton into the thin ribbon and so on. You can change the ribbon as many times as you would like until you reach the middle. When you do reach the middle tie a knot.
Now get the embroidery string and put a bead on and tie knot. Then split up the cotton into sets of 2 strands and tie bells, glass hangers and feathers on. Then tie to the body of the Dream Catcher.
