Instructions

  1. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150544 img 1766

    This is the kit before I opened it to get ready to make this awesome Dream Catcher!

  2. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150547 img 1767

    Everything out of the kit!

  3. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150550 img 1768

    Now to get started, you want to anchor your twine on to the hoop with a tight double knot as shown and you want to cut your twine to about 10 ft or so which will be more than enough to do this 7" hoop.

  4. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150556 img 1769

    First you need to decide how many points you want your dream catcher to have in the first row, I did 6 and evenly spaced them around the hoop. In order to secure each point to the hope you bring the twine around under the hoop as shown.

  5. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150601 img 1772

    Then you bring the twine through the hoop then down through the gap between the hoop and twine and pull tight as shown.

  6. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150617 img 1773

    Keep doing that until you get all the way around the hoop and you are back to the knot. From there you repeat steps 4 and 5 but this time instead on the hoop you do it in the middle of each section of twine as shown. Just make sure you keep your tension tight. If you wish to add beads all you do is string them on and keep going as normal and when you get back around to the section of twine the bead is on push it to one side and keep going.

  7. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150622 img 1774

    Once you get to the middle and are ready to end it, tie another tight double or triple knot and cut the excess twine off.

  8. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150631 img 1776

    Now that you've cut the excess twine off you are ready to add the leather cord, feathers and any other items you wish to hang off the Dream Catcher.

  9. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150636 img 1777

    Cut the cord to whatever length you wish to use to hang the Dream Catcher with and secure it to the hoop, I chose to attached it where I tied the twine knot so that it would hide the knot and seem almost seamless.

  10. Small 109921 2f2015 07 14 150640 img 1778

    Then cut 3 more pieces of cord and tie the feathers on to each end and string any beads on you wish and secure them to the bottom of the hoop. Some people may chose to have other colored leather cord and add leather braids that hang off as well. Once you are done it is ready to hang up either above your bed or on a wall as a accent piece.
