Help your kids transition into the new school year with a whimsical dream catcher project. From feathers to twine you can find all of the materials you’ll need on PaperMart.com. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams while letting positive dreams come through. This project is not only fun and easy but also a great way to get your kids excited about going back to school or to entertain them with a creative project for the weekend.
How to make a DIY Feather Dream Catcher
- Start by wrapping the natural cotton ribbon around the metal ring so that all the metal is hidden. Secure the end with hot glue.
- Tie the cotton twine to the top of the ring and wrap it all the way around so it is evenly spaced and taught. Continue the pattern by threading the twine through each loop that is made until you reach the center of the ring. Tie a knot in the center.
- Now add the decorative aspects to the bottom of the dreamcatcher. Use the twine to hang the pearls and feathers. Attach the lace and leaf cord to the back bottom of the dream catcher with hot glue.
