I used Texas pecan wood, Queen Anne's Lace, pink dandelions, and green cotton embroidery floss, but you can use any variations.

Step 1: Lay Out Your Sticks in a Shape
I chose to use three sticks and make a triangle. You don't have to close your shape; you can use the string as another side.
Step 2: Attach the Sticks
Tie the sticks together. Secure with hot glue.
Step 3: Begin Making the Web
Tie a knot where you want to start, then secure with hot glue. Leaving some thread loose, wrap the thread behind the stick and back over. Repeat until you have 7 or 13 loops. Your final outer loop will be completed around another loop rather than the stick.
Step 4: Finish the Web
Once you have woven your way to the center (make sure to leave an adequate sized gap for the dreams to get through!), tie the string off around itself a few times.
Step 5: Make the Hanger
Take a string and double it over. Tie the end around itself.
Find the top corner of your dream catcher. Loop the end of the string through, then push the knotted end of the string through its own loop. Secure with hot glue.
Step 6: Add Decorations
Lay out your decorations where you want them. Move them aside. Add hot glue, press them on, then wrap in string.
Step 7: Finish
Hang as you like
