Tutorial: Dreamcatcher

You liked my previous little tutorial.. so I decided to make another one! I made it about two months ago but I didn't want to show it before our new Challenge at Art-Piaskownica won't be published! This time I would like to show you how to make an easy dreamcatcher! :)

Like earlier it a very easy DIY. I hope everything will be clear for you! :)

First collect needed stuff:
- cardboard / embroidery hoop / thick wire
- string / twine / yarn / cotton tape
- feathers, colorful fabric stripes, metal or other kind of colorful accessories

Everything is explained on the photos, but if something is not really clear please contact me and I will add more information or something like that to make it easier for you :)
STEP 1: take something perfectly round and redraw it on a very thick cardboard. Then cut out the circle - carefully! Or just take an embroidery hoop if you have a needless one :)
STEP 2: take some kind of string / twine / yarn and tie a small knot. I used a pastel green one because I didn't have what to do with it for a long time!
STEP 3: Wrap the string round the cardboard (tightly!)
Now you have a nice looking carboard circle!
STEP 4: tie a new knot wherever you want.
STEP 5: make a loop.
STEP 6: continue making loops.
Don't stop! :) You can make it as densely as you wish..
Et voila!
You have created the main dreamcatcher element! You can also put some breads etc. to make this element more colorful. I wanted to have a quite simple one :)
STEP 7: make / buy / find some feathers and join them to some fabric stripes. You can also add some other elements like the metal one I used.
STEP 8: now the most pleasant part - join fabric stripes to the main element of the dream catcher.
You decide how many stripes and other things you want :)
That was easy, wasn't it?

Tell me what you think about it ) If you like it I will make more tutorials in the future! :)

I hope your weekend was incredible! My sure was - I visited Cracow for the Crafshow, and it was really amazing! I'm so happy I met some many new bloggers who I always wanted to see in reality :) And talk with some amazing girls I already know from the show in June! One thing that I regret is that I (as always) forgot to take a camera with me..!!
