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.
