Rainbow Dreamcatcher

My daughter has been asking for a dreamcatcher.  So I thought I would try to make one and since her favourite colour right now is rainbow, I decided to use an assortment of colourful ribbons and beads for the rainbow effect.

There are tons of tutorials out there on how to make one so I am not going to go into those details.

The supplies I used to make the dream catcher included bakers twine for the web, ribbons, beads, glue and a wooden ring (part of an embroidery hoop).

I have never made a dreamcatcher before, so I did have to re-string it a couple of times to get the tension correct for the web.

I have read the web catches the bad dreams and the centre hole lets the good ones pass.

She asked me if her dreamcatcher would get heavier as it caught more dreams.
