Dreamcatchers are accessories created to catch bad dreams floating in the air and allow good dreams to enter, according to the tradition of the native peoples of North America. When the sun rises in the morning, the bad dreams trapped in the spider web disappear. If you like this kind of decoration keep reading because today we’ll make a dreamcatcher with recycled fabric.
How to make a dreamcatcher with recycled fabric
- An embroidery hoop or frame.
- T-shirt yarn.
- Embroidery thread.
Step by step:
Cover the hoop with t-shirt yarn. You can do it with a single color or combine several shades of recycled fabric. Use a little bit of glue to fix the yarn to the hoop.
You can make the spider web with yarn or thread, it all depends on the finish look you want to give to the dreamcatcher. To do this, take a long piece of yarn and tie it around the edge of the hoop, leave about 10 cm of thread free and in a space of about 4 cm wrap the thread over the hoop again. You should do this all the way around the edge of the hoop to create the base on which to do the inner weaving.
Once you get to the first knot again, you’re going to do the inner weaving which involves making knots every few distances until you get to the center of the dreamcatcher.
You can add beads between each knot.
Once you get to the center, tie a knot to join the work.
Place some threads at the bottom of the hoop, on each thread place feathers.
With yarn, make a loop at the top of the dreamcatcher so you can hang it.
