Let’s get started with the making of your own personalized Dream-Catcher. Go and grab these things first:
- Wooden loop
- Yarn / wool / Washi tape
- Thread (good quality)
Follow these simple steps:
- Start covering the wooden loop with yarn, wool or washi tape. Totally cover it up until every part of wooden is covered.
- The next step is to create a web, choose a yarn color you like and wrap them around the loop. Tightly tie knots at the ends of your yarn around every two or one inches of the loop so that they don’t slide off.
- Once you are done with your way around the corners of the loop, start adding knots to the center of each length of the yarn. Keep repeating this step until you reach at the center of the loop.
- Cut 10 pieces of string and tie one end of it with the loop. Finally, strung the bead on the six threads and tie the ends of it with feathers. Thus, you will be left with 6 feather hanging strings and 4 strings must be tied in a knot in opposite direction, so that it can help in hanging it.
