I made a Dreamcatcher

Last night I was browsing on Etsy when I ran across a dreamcatcher. I seriously sparked with inspiration at that very moment because I seriously love dreamcatchers. I never thought about making my own until I realized Etsy is a handmade marketplace and somebody was selling handmade dreamcatchers. I literally sprinted to my room and pulled out a huge box of wooden beads, lace, wire, cording, feathers and other random tid bits. I whipped this thing out in two hours and absolutely love the outcome of the piece. I think it is really natural and earthy which is what I was going for. Since I was unsure of how to weave the center I actually pulled a vintage doily from my stash which I think looks quite unique and even adds more of that handmade touch. What are your thoughts on this piece? I am addicted and after school tomorrow I plan on making a mini one for my keychain which I will share with you all of course.

    So pretty! I have one I bought years ago, and yours is so much nicer. Be sure to hang it up to “catch” any bad dreams!

    very nice drew. i hope you thought of your bad dreams while making it so that it was able to catch them and have a peaceful night’s sleep.

    Wow! Love this! I love the fact that you were so inspired that you made it then and there – in such a short amount of time too. It really is natural and earthy, which i don’t think would’ve been created had you really planned it out!

    Would you be willing to post a tutorial on this? Or at least list the items you used? I think it’s AWESOME! I’d love to make one for my son. He has nightmares a lot.
