Let’s create a dream catcher with some found objects at home.
- Paper plates
- String (yarn, fishing line, rope)
- Hole punch
- Found objects (beads, sticks, feathers)
- Paint and markers for decorating
Step 1: Cut the center of the paper plate to make a ring.
Step 2: Use the hole punch to make holes around the ring.
Step 3: Cut a long piece of string.
Step 4: Tie the string in a knot around one of the holes you made in the plate.
Step 5: Weave the string in and out of each hole. Be sure to use the holes opposite each other to make a “spider web.”
Step 6: Decorate your hoop using paint or markers. Make sure you let it dry!
Step 7: Add additional holes at the bottom of your dream catcher.
Step 8: Cut additional string and tie to the base of the plate.
Step 9: Use your found objects to tread onto the loose string at the bottom of your dream catcher. Be sure to tie a knot after each grouping
Step 10: Add additional holes at the top of the hoop and attach a string to hang.
Step 11: Finally, hang the dream catcher by your bed.
The dream catcher will catch all the bad dreams and let the good dreams pass through!
