Making Dream Catchers – Round 2

G1 made a Dream Catcher following instructions from the Angry Birds Stella Super Interactive Annual 2015 last holidays and he had a lot of fun making it so when my god daughter came to stay with us, I decided we could make a “proper” dream catcher as a bonding project. It was also a great opportunity to go check out Spotlight in Ampang to see if it is as cool as the one I remembered in Australia. I am glad to say I was not disappointed. The great news is that Spotlight will be opening a second branch in IPC (Ikano Power Center) in March and the Mines in April! Yay!

I digress… We got our instructions on making a dream catcher from “Instructibles – How to Make a Dream Catcher“.

What you will need:

Here’s how we did it:

We wrapped the metal hoop with ribbon and tied a loop at the top for hanging. We used embroidery thread to make the net. Instructions for making the net are described in the link above.

I threaded some beads into the net at at the center:

Then we attached the feathers:

This “simple” activity turned out to be a lot more challenging than I anticipated. By the end of it, I was the last one standing because the kids had given up. Maybe I should have stuck with the easier Dream Catcher that G1 made from before.
