DIY Mini Dream Catcher
This mini dream catcher is the perfect addition to any boho gift wrapping, or to hang on your Christmas tree for a little bohemian sparkle! They're gorgeous, and super easy to make!
What you'll need:
- Cheap bracelets - (mine were £1 for 6 from Primark)
- Assorted beads and charms
Put a dot of superglue on your bracelet, and stick down one end of your string. Begin wrapping bracelet all the way around until completly covered.
I alternated the colour of my string to make it more interesting, but keep it simple if you want!
Once its completly covered, take a length of string and tie it to the top of your hoop.
Begin trying your string around the hoop at regular intervals. I find 8 anchor points work well.
(This bit looks complicated, but stick with me!)
Take the string and tie a knot half way along the first section.
Now take the string and tie a knot half way along the next section.
Continue on to the next section. You should start to see this triangle pattern appearing.
Continue working around the circle adding beads as you go.
Keep going until you are happy with the size.
(This is as small as I could get it until my stubby fingers couldn't tie any smaller knots!)
Add a dot of superglue to the final knot so it doesn't come undone when you cut the loose end.
It's time to decorate! If your feathrs are too big, you can cut them down to size.
Put a dot of glue on the quill of the feather and wrap with string. Then tie to the bottom of your dream catcher.
Continue adding feathers, beads, charms etc until you are happy with how it looks.
Add whatever you want at this point, ribbons, lace and pom poms look great too.
Make a loop of string for hanging.
Pass the loop through the top of the dream catcher.
Pass the loop through itself and pull tight.
These look great attached to presents, or make loads and hang them on your Christmas tree!
A gold, sparkly version would be amazing as a tree decoration.
