Homemade Dream catchers

default Homemade Dream catchers

Post by Adrian on 12th January 2012, 10:45 am

From rachael rice on freepeople blog

here’s a basic way to make a little dream catcher. riffing on the round object with danglies (found in every culture) i’ve been (finally) finding uses for my slightly embarrassing doily collection.

also featured here are diy doily crystal necklaces. my friend heather treasure cautions mindfulness about sourcing quartz and other crystals, and recommends arkansas crystal works.



start here


start here. i used a bangle. tie string, loop around.


keep looping around, and when you get to the beginning...


catch the loops and weave the string through each one. back to front or front to back, it doesn't matter as long as you are consistent


keep spiraling in until it gets too small to work with. add a bead and tie off. add feathers, etc. and you're done!


object with doilies and painted feathers


pastels or crayons, watercolors, collage elements


draw with pastel or crayon, add collage elements, and paint over.


cut out, draw designs with markers. i like sharpie paint pens.


finished product, and "dark star"


doily, lace & quartz necklaces


wrapped in wire, held by a piece of vintage lace

I used to make dream catchers many years ago, but suddenly they just did not work any more. I used to make the circle with willow or cane but ended up having a problem with the centre bit. These are so lovely I may just give it another go.

I've still got mine. It's hanging above my desk in my room.
