Have you ever wondered how to make a dreamcatcher? I remember getting a traditional leather dreamcatcher when I was young, when we were touring the southwest. It hung above my bed for years. I’m not sure where that one went, but now that I’m seeing more and more gorgeous DIY dreamcatchers, making one is next on my list! I love all of the gorgeous takes that different designers have — from simple and modern, to decadently boho. Each one is unique and each one is beautiful!
I thought I’d share some of the gorgeous tutorials I’ve been perusing while brainstorming my own design. Hope you love all of these creative dreamcatchers!
I finally made my own, with a gilded leaf for fall! You can see it here.
