To start with, let’s tell you that Dream Catcher DIY is pretty easy. That’s why we first take a bit of time to tell about his story.
It is a tradition that goes back to the Indian tribe Ojibwe. The people there created these first dreamcatchers out of willow branches and tendons. They believed that so all evil dreams can be captured. So the bad ones get trapped in the net and stay there. Only in the morning are they dissolved by the first rays of sunlight? Logical, right?
Do you also want your bad dreams trapped in the web of a dreamcatcher you made yourself? Yes, here are the 13 steps by which you can achieve this.
Step by step to Dreamcatcher yourself
First, of course, you would have to get the necessary materials. You definitely need tape and materials to make the nets. You have to find the right material for the tire. This task should be performed with particular care, as it is fundamental to the success of the project.
The best way to read the next steps, because there are several alternatives presented. Make a list while doing so.
Make the tire first. This one is usually no bigger than a human hand. It can be made of red beech or vine. It can be found in many different specialty shops. You need about 3 meters of wood material from it. That will be enough to make the tire. Alternatively, you could use fresh grapevine and let it dry. Any kind of wood and metal are also allowed as materials.
Unconventional with wood
Then you need the dream catcher yourself tinkering the laces. With that you have to wrap the tire around. For this one usually uses a kind of suede. The length must be 8 times that of the tire you are doing. If suede lace is not there, you could easily craft it from a different kind of material.
Now select the twine. From this you will be able to make the net of the dreamcatcher yourself. Transparent nylon cord could also be very helpful. Mostly the string is transparent or white, but you could use colored ones in some cases.
Now wrap the tire. To do this, coat it with a bit of glue and then start wrapping around it.
Do not forget to make a hanger. You could cut the hanging ends with scissors.
Now we come to probably the most elaborate part of the dream catcher weaving. In the beginning, you should tie a knot on the tire. From here, work in a clockwise direction. Wrap around the tire once and a few inches further make the next knot. Make some loops like this.

Now weave the net to the inner part of the tire. The knots would now have to be attached to the thread itself. Decorate the whole thing with buttons or other great jewelry pieces, which you have prepared in advance. Work your way through to the middle.
After weaving everything to a small circle in the middle, tie the thread in one place so that it does not fall apart. Make a double knot so it’s safe.
If you wish, you could now attach one or two ornamental feathers. This is best done in a place where there is already a knot anyway.
Now you are done with the dream catcher DIY.
The only thing you have to do now is to hang this up. We wish you beautiful dreams!
