This lovely little charm can be worn as a pendant or hung off the edge of your bed to keep bad dreams at bay!
So I can honestly say that I don’t put much stock in dream catchers as a whole, but I feel like they have a beautiful boho aesthetic to them and I love the way they look as fashion accessories. Originally I had planned to make this as a necklace, but then decided against it as I didn’t have a long enough chain, but I can hang it off the edge of my bed to keep the bad dreams away!

    Then with your next color of embroidery floss you just sort of weave a net; making a circular pattern by continually passing over the loop you’ve just made with your floss. Tie off your second color tightly to ensure that your web doesn’t become lax. Secure with a small dab of glue.

    Then all you have to do is add your string and any embellishments that you want. I used some beads that I had lying around from another project knotted onto some embroidery floss to make it look like a proper dream catcher.

    Then just hang it wherever you want or wear it as a necklace.

    I initially thought I would do this project in very muted earthy tones, but now that I’ve done it I’m really glad I chose the vibrant funky colors that I did.
