DIY Dream Catcher Party Backdrop. I love dream catchers, I remember making them when I was a little girl with branches and yarn or string, or whatever I could find in the junk drawers. I even had what I believed to be a true Native American made on…now, if it truly was, or I just believed it was, I don’t know. When the opportunity arose for me to host a Social Artworking Party in late January, my friends and I chose the Be Brave design. The party wound up being so appropriately meaningful for me, you can read about it here. Since the design had a boho vibe to it, I wanted to make a boho feeling backdrop. The first thing that came to mind was dream catchers. I gathered up some supplies, and got busy. The dream catchers were a huge hit at the party, and they all ended up going home with my friends. But, I had a special request from one of my friend’s daughters for a purple and gold dream catcher after the party. Of course, I had to make hers a little more special than the rest.
I was sent two skeins of gorgeous yarn from Premier yarns to craft with, and I knew exactly what I was going to make with one skein, a dream catcher for my friend’s daughter. I wanted to add a little more to the dream catcher, so I cut out some feathers with my Cricut.
I wrapped an embroidery hoop in the yarn, and began making the dream catcher. Tie the beginning of the yarn at the top, and loop over the top, and through the loop you just made, pulling it taught. Repeat over and over, occasionally tying a knot into the loops to keep them stable.
Continue doing this until you have filled in most of the embroidery hoop. Tie the last section in a knot. You can leave it as is, or you can embellish it with feathers, shells, or whatever makes your heart happy.
