doily dreamcatcher d.i.y.

My current obsession is dream-catchers. To be more specific, making my own. There are so many beautiful hand-made versions on Pinterest, and here is my first try. Initially created by the Ojibwe people with a willow hoop and woven net, dreamcatcher’s were meant to filter out bad dreams and let only good ones into the minds of children. When sun rises, the bad dreams disappear. I had a dreamcatcher hanging from my bedroom window as a child, and now I do again. I also think these would make great gifts. The strings could be decorated with items that represent your interests, or you could use traditional decorations such as owl or eagle feathers which represent breath or air, wisdom and courage.
