Mini DIY Dream Catcher

"I’ve always wanted to make my own, but the prospect of learning a new craft seemed a little daunting. This dream catcher can be made with (mostly) basic crochet skills. I got the idea to use a recycled plastic base for a dream catcher after seeing an image of a crochet mandala within a hula hoop. I didn’t have any hula hoops on hand. Even if I did, I’m not so sure that I would have enough patience to crochet something so huge! When I stumbled across some small cups in the pantry, I decided to make something similar but on a much smaller scale. I used these 3.5 oz solo cups to create mini dreamcatchers."

I saw one of these hang up in one of my friends car and i loved the idea so much. everybody needs a dream-catcher and i love the idea of using plastic cups cause i have many left over from Christmas parties that i can use. The pattern is easy enough even for beginners and you can use ombre thread to create the mandala effect.
