"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

How to Make a Dream Catcher

Dollar Store Dream Catcher Instructions

  1. Cut the middle out of a paper plate and use foam brushes to paint the plate any way you'd like, we just created a cool abstract pattern with the neon paints.

  2. Once dry punch holes every few inches around the plate and cut off a pretty long piece of string, around five feet.

  3. Tie the end of the string around one of the holes and weave it randomly going under the plate, into the hole, and over again.

  4. Repeat until you've woven in all the holes, then tie the end to a hole. 

  5. Braid three ropes from the neon yarn and add beads to the braid knot and glue feathers to the end of each string. 

  6. Cut three more holes a few inches apart on the bottom of your dream catcher and tie each braid through the hole.

  7. Now punch a hole at the top and tie a piece of string then hang it wherever you like!

I nanny for three little kids and they totally loved this project! It was definitely easy to make, easy clean up, and they had a bunch of fun making it!

I love this idea and I have made some in the past. I did switch out the paper plate for a styrofoam one at the dollar store. It's sturdier and doesn't want to warp when painted. I have dated a Native American and learned a few dos and donuts whn dealing with their traditions. There are certain colors that mean certain things just as there are animals that are sacred. You can google them to make sure your project is done right.
