List of Supplies:
Craft wire or round hoop
Colorful craft feathers
Colorful papers (if you want to add flowers)
Hot glue gun
Make a hoop using 16 gauge craft wire or you can simply use a store bought hoop for the dreamcatcher.
Select a yarn and tie a knot around the hoop without cutting the yarn from the bundle.
Randomly wrap the yarn inside the hoop. Each time the yarn reaches the hoop band wrap it around the hoop band once or twice on that spot to make sure that it stays still. Once you are satisfied with the random yarn pattern bring it to the band again and tie 2 tight knots. Cut off extra yarn.
Grab a different colored yarn and similarly wrap it randomly inside the hoop. Use 1 or 2 more different colored yarns for random wrapping.
Once the yarn wrapping is complete, grab some colorful pompoms and add them around the hoop. Use hot glue gun to attach the pompoms around the dreamcatcher hoop.
Keep an even distance between the pompoms when gluing them around the hoop.
Now let’s add some yarn hanging to the hoop! Determine a length for the yarn hanging on the dreamcatcher and cut a yarn strand of double the required length. Fold it into half and attach it with the hoop by a loop knot.
Grab different colored yarn strands and attach them to the hoop.
Done attaching yarns? Use scissors to trim the bottom ends of the yarn. You keep them straight or cut them into a triangular shape.
Now get the colored craft feathers and attach them on the open bottom ends of the yarn hanging. You can select a few strands for adding the feathers or you can add feathers to all of them, however, you want.
