Take your branch and bend it into a circle. Then tie the ends together with string.
OPTIONAL: Use varnish on the string to assure a strong hold. (I like to use clear nail polish instead).
Attach new string, and begin looping it completely around the branch. Please note: traditionally, sinew is used instead of string.
Pass the string through the first row of loops as shown. Continue this pattern until you are near the center.
As you close in on the center, add beads to your dream catcher.
Double knot the string when you have about a 2 inch diameter of empty space in the center.
Tie string to the bottom-center of the dream catcher, and string beads and/or feathers onto it.
Finally, attach a loop of string to the top of the dream catcher, and it's ready for hanging!
