Colorful and playful, these do-it-yourself
can fill an evening with artful joy!
According to Native Americans, dreams we have are sent to us by sacred spirits.
The dream catcher acts as a filter for only good dreams!
The web traps the bad dreams and they disappear at dawn.
When you Google "dream catcher" you can see over 4 million images,
go ahead and get some inspiration
and let your free spirit create an original work of art!
You will need: feathers. feathers. feathers.
Assorted pipe cleaners of all colors and sizes.
16 gauge craft or floral wire.
A pair of needle nose pliers.
Make a hoop with the wire and secure with two interlocking loops.
Using the pipe cleaners, start making a web.
Don't be too fussy with balance or symmetry...can you do that?
Remember be free!
I happen to have a blue and green theme going on. But the next one i make will be multi-colored.
You know pipe cleaners also make super cute garland...(sorry, got a little distracted)
Back to the task at hand.
Keep webbing, until you are satisfied that your bad dreams will be trapped successfully. :)
Now it's time for the feathers.
Watch out, once the feather bag is opened, little floaty feather whispies, fly every where.
Attach a pipe cleaner to the center of the base of the circle like so.
Then wrap it around the feathers, no pliers needed!
And...done! Oh ya, I used the yarn to hang it from, but you can also web with the yarn.
Have fun and keep dreaming...
