Story of a dreamcatcher

Dreamcatchers today were considered a beautiful decoration for rooms, but deeply they have their tradition. It was used by Native American tribes as traditional amulets to protect dreams. The idea is to place it in the place where you sleep to trap the bad energies that filter through dreams. That way, everything bad will be caught in its net and disappear in the early morning.

Today they are sold in countless shops and markets , although it was an object that became popular in the 60s. Now with this little tutorial you can make your own dream catcher, something entertaining and feasible to develop our imagination.

How to make a dream catcher


  • A wire.
  • Colored wool.
  • wooden beads.
  • Colorful feathers.
  • Decorative pompoms.
  • Decorative bells.
  • A marker to mark.
  • Scissors.
  • Silicone type adhesive.

First step:

We take the wire and wrap it in the shape of a circle to make the circumference of the dreamcatcher. We will choose the measure we want and we will twist a little each end of the wire. The idea is to anchor the two ends.

Second step:

We choose one of the wool and start winding it around the wire. At the end of the wrapping we tie its ends through knots and cut the excess part.

Third step:

With the black marker we mark eight points. They must be strategically well placed and therefore we mark four points in the form of a cross. Then we make the other four points to calculate half the distance between any two of the points we marked at the beginning.

Fourth step:

With the wool we make a knot in one of the points. Once knotted and without cutting the yarn, we go to the next stitch and we make another knot again. We knot until we finish the marked points.

Fifth step:

Without cutting the thread, we pass it through the middle of the sides that we formed from knot to knot. We will only pass it, we will not crack it. In this way the web begins to weave. We go back to make another turn to form the circle and we pass it through the center of the side that was formed.

Step Six:

When we get to the middle, we knot it and cut the excess part of the thread.

Seventh step:

We make the hanging ropes. There will be three, but each will be formed by a braid with three strands of wool. We tied it to the frame and dropped it. At the end, a wooden ball was placed, which we also tied with the rope.

Eighth step:

With the help of silicone glue, we stick the pompoms on the structure of the spider web. We leave them scattered.

Nineteenth step:

Between the beads we placed on the braided and hanging cord, we placed a drop of silicone. In between we put a feather for each bead.


Small jingle bells are also placed in the structure of the web, which we tie with the help of a fine thread. We let the glue dry well and we can enjoy the dream catcher.
